Jody sings vintage American songs and plays tunes on the Anglo concertina. Hailing from New York City, he loves to perform in the UK where folks really appreciate what he’s up to.
His concerts in England offer a warm and engaging solo presentation of traditional and popular American songs from yesteryear. From witty and humorous ditties to songs that explore the depths of the human condition, His singing tells American stories that are hilarious, gritty and true… stories of train wrecks and wrecked marriages, death row convicts and lonesome lovers, heroes, losers, swaggering braggarts, lazy slackers and slapstick fools. Plan to join in on the chorus.
His love affair with the concertina goes back thirty years. He plays often at local New York contra dances with a number of bands. He has played extensively for Morris and Sword teams and also many Playford dances in NYC.
