Sunday, May 12, 2013, 7:00 PM – The Floyd Country Store will host Wayne Henderson & Jeff Little for a special Mother’s Day Concert. Come on out and celebrate Mother’s Day with some of the best musician’s around.
Wayne Henderson’s top-notch finger-picking is a source of great pleasure and pride to his friends, family, and neighbors in Grayson County, Virginia; his guitar playing has also been enjoyed at Carnegie Hall, in three national tours of “Masters of the Steel-String Guitar”, and in seven nations in Asia. In addition to his reputation as a guitarist, Henderson is a luthier of great renown. He is a recipient of a 1995 National Heritage Award presented by the National Endowment for the Arts.
In describing Jeff Little, the National Council for the Traditional Arts stated: “With few exceptions, the piano does not play a prominent part in Americana or traditional music, and is rarely the lead instrument. But Jeff Little is an exception – and a remarkable one. His distinctive style, much influenced by the flatpicked guitar tradition, is breathtaking in its speed, precision and clarity”. Little has performed for National Public Radio, PBS, National Council for the Traditional Arts, American Piano Masters Series, The Smithsonian Folklife Festival, and The American Folk Festival just to name a few. He has also performed internationally including concerts in Sri Lanka, Oman, Tanzania, and France.
