Jeff Warner's mother wrote (and he edited) the book on old-time American songs, or at least one of the most famous: Traditional American Folk Songs From the Anne and Frank Warner Collection amassed many of the tunes that the pair gathered during five decades of travels into the South in search of the nation's musical bedrock. The multi-instrumentalist Warner remains an undisturbed conduit for those discoveries, singing old tales of woe and hope in a voice that's declarative in purpose and unadorned in approach. That is, though he's a fine performer, Warner seems most interested in his family's nearly 100-year-old mission—to find the song, save it and pass it along with fidelity. —Grayson Currin
