Best Local Folk Act: Jeff Evans, AKA Chicken & Pigs

Staff Pick

JEFF EVANS, AKA CHICKENS & PIGS, can keep a room wrapped around his little finger by way of his epic, self-effacing tales of hard luck with happy-go-lucky charm. At each and every performance, listeners chuckle on the edge of their seats and wonder: How much more fun can this get? Evans’ lanky presence and limber strum and bark come across like an unholy hybrid of Keith Richards and Captain Kangaroo. His songs are obsessed with food and animals, and usually cover both in each go-around. The more frantically he plays, the more mistakes he makes. But he rolls with them in the most endearing ways. The ramshackle pace of his songs, coupled with his “aw shucks” rural humor is as compelling as it is hilarious.
