Don’t miss Friday’s Preview and Reception at 5pm – 7pm featuring light refreshments and live acoustic music by Alex Smith. Alex Smith grew up in Long Lake, NY, in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains. The son of a boatbuilder/writer/banjo player and a historian, Smith was immersed in folk tradition from a very young age. Around the house, Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan were constantly present on the airwaves.
Smith began writing and playing traditional folk songs at the age of 12 or 13, and has not stopped since. The community Smith grew up in is steeped in tradition, and also offers plenty of material for contemporary songs. The work of Adirondack folk legends Dan Berggren, Chris Shaw, and Peggy Lynn were extremely influential, as was Canadian artist Stan Rogers.
Show Hours: Friday, July 5th 5pm – 7pm, Saturday, July 6th from 10am -5pm and Sunday, July 7th 10am-3pm.
