Wayne Henderson and Jeff Little are coming to Marshall!

A performance by Wayne Henderson goes beyond the music with hilarious and heartfelt stories about his life in Rugby, Virginia. His renown as a top-notch finger-picking guitarist and a skilled luthier are a great source of pride to his friends, family, and neighbors in Grayson County. He is a recipient of a 1995 National Heritage Award presented by the National Endowment for the Arts. Learn more about Wayne at www.waynehenderson.org

With few exceptions, the piano does not play a prominent role in Appalachian or Americana music, and is rarely the lead instrument. But the music of the Jeff Little Trio is an exception. Little’s distinctive two-handed style, much influenced by the mountain flat-picked guitar tradition, is breathtaking in its speed, precision, and clarity. His involvement with fiddle tunes, old-time country, and traditional blues dates back to his childhood in Boone, North Carolina, when he would regularly sit in with musicians at his family’s music shop. In 2014, Little was inducted into the Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame. Learn more about Jeff at jefflittle.net
