Postponed: Jeff Little Trio at Lee Street theatre

March 13 • 7:30 p.m. :  Jeff Little Trio with Catawba College Popular Music Artists to perform March 13th Concert at Lee Street theatre

When the Jeff Little Trio performs at Salisbury’s Lee Street theatre on Saturday, March 13, Catawba College Popular Music Faculty and Artist-in-Resident Jeff Little will not only be playing, but he’ll have an opportunity to also showcase the talents of three outstanding students currently enrolled in Catawba’s Popular Music program.
With Little on the piano, son Luke Little on the mandolin, and longtime colleague and award winning musician Steve Lewis on the acoustic guitar and the five-string banjo, it promises to be a great evening of music.

Catawba students Angel Paez of Charlotte, Dylan Smith of Trinity, and Halle Dunn of Salisbury, will be joining the Jeff Little Trio in the second half of the show as the trio widens the performing circle to share the spotlight on stage. All three students participate in Catawba’s Popular Music Program.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Music Program at Catawba College and the Lee Street Theatre. That’s a Jeff Little tradition, something he’s done for all 15 of the years he’s spent in higher education — at least one of his concert’s each year serves as a fund-raiser for the program he’s teaching in and becomes a way to help showcase his students.

Little has over 30 years’ experience in the music industry as a critically acclaimed musician, artist manager, educator and administrator for college music industry programs. His performances include such venues as the Smithsonian Institution, the American Folk Festival, the National Council for the Traditional Arts, American Piano Masters, and the PBS concert, “Doc Watson and Jeff Little.”

Little is the recipient of the Distinguished Lecturer Award from The National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development, College of Education at The University of Texas. He is a SESAC affiliated songwriter and in 2014, was inducted into the Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame.
