Show Archives

Dancing Man at California Jeff Folklife Festival Show
Check out the full list of Jeff’s past shows.

We are compiling photos, recordings, videos, and anything else related to each date. As we get things together we will add links to each show so you can relive the past over and over again. Couldn’t make it to a show? No problem, check the show archives to see if you missed anything good. If you’ve never seen Jeff live, then the show archives will be a great place to get acquainted with what you can expect at a California Jeff show. The race to fill the show archives is a marathon rather than a sprint so be please patient.


Show Archives dating back to May 2015.

As the archives are updated it will be easy to see how Jeff has changed, and remained the same, since he committed to live performance back in 2015. If you’re looking for shows prior to 2015 you might be out of luck for a while. They happened but pictures and recordings are few and far between. Perhaps someday we will delve even deeper into the past but for now we are focused on Jeff’s current incarnation as a live performer.  Now strap on your helmet, step into the time machine, and enjoy California Jeff’s show archives!
