Jeremy Packer

I'm a Milwaukee based solo musician performing old-time music from the southern mountains on guitar, banjo, mandolin, and vocals. My musical influences include Doc Watson and Norman Blake, as well as dozens of lesser known old-timers whose music has been preserved in the Smithsonian Archives and elsewhere in recorded form. I like to present my material in its traditional, raw form. I'm also a musicologist by training, and like to give the audience background on the songs I perform and the culture they come from. I do this with humor and jokes even older than the music I sing! [+]
