This week, to start his residency Jeff will do a solo show. Many people prefer the intimacy of this 'listening room' experience. Jeff, two time winner of "Best of WNC" awards in the "singer/songwriter" category, will be performing sans bandmates, just him and his guitar, sharing some new stories, poems and songs from his recent months in New Orleans, along with solo arrangements of favorites from his albums. It's a rare treat to catch Jeff solo in Asheville these days, and this will be a special show, since he's brimming with tales of his New Orleans Winter.Tickets Save
This week will be a duo show with Jeff's friend and collaborator, pianist and singer Aaron Price. Aaron and Jeff have a few surprises up their sleeves, including songs they've written together, jazz tunes from the Big Easy, and spicy arrangements of standards from the Great American songbook! These two are a formidable team, and this is sure to be a delightful evening. Special guests will be joining them for cameos.Tickets Save
This week Jeff is very pleased to reunite with the wildly talented and creative drummer James Kylen, who played regularly with Jeff for over a year. James will be adding his formidable drumming skills to the already potent duo of Thompson and Price. The trio will be tackling much of the material from Jeff's new album, "So Far, So Strange," as well as material from "Stillsmall Voices," Jeff's earlier release, and they will be throwing in several surprise arrangements of cover songs you have probably never heard them do before. There will likely also be a surprise special guest or two sitting in.Tickets Save
