LeFever is the Western Massachusetts duo of songwriters Dawn Lepere and Jeff Starns. They are two time Blues Foundation Blues Challenge winners, and one-time International Blues Challenge semi-finalists. Hailing from Ohio and Louisiana, they have merged their musical styles to create an eclectic collection of buoyant and catchy original music that moves in and out of blues, blues-rock, and indie rock. For their appearance at the 2024 Jazz and Roots Festival, they will be joined by Frank Manzi, who has been performing across Western Massachusetts for nearly 3 decades and is well known as a passionate singer, songwriter, guitarist, bassist and harp player; and Tommy Diehl, originally from NE Ohio, who has been drumming his whole life and has happily spent many years touring the country and recording with numerous bands. Don’t miss this performance!
