Alex Smith Live Music
December 13, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Alex Smith grew up in Long Lake, in the rural heart of New York’s Adirondack Park, and his music strives first and foremost to echo the people and culture of that area. He builds songs from a blend of traditional folk harmony and strikingly modern lyrics, confronting today’s most pressing issues with a style of honest and accurate observation often compared to songwriters Stan Rogers and Jason Isbell. Smith’s mother is a historian and his father is a writer and boat builder. Their influence is evident in his attention to detail: each of Smith’s characters’ lives and breathes a balance between beauty and imperfection. His stories draw on the triumphs and hardships of friends, relatives, and neighbors near and far. Smith is truly a “working musician,” playing nearly 200 a shows a year. $1 from each pour of cider goes to Alex, so drink your fruit and enjoy the music!
