Laura Smith - Spirited Vocals and Melodies
Laura Smith's music is direct and honest. Sometimes, fiddles and guitars gently lift and carry her spirited vocals, while her melodies and careful poetry dig deep. "My work is all very simple, earth-based," says the Maritime-based singer/songwriter. Her work is not so much written, as painstakingly designed, cut and stitched together. "Like quilt craft," she explains. "I make it body and soul, with everything I have available - my sensibilities, my ability to play. So many things come into the making of a song. When I say write, it limits what I bring to bear."

Music will be starting at 8:00 pm. 
on Friday., July. 13, 2012. 
 Reserve seats by calling John Duckworth at 902-766-4670, or Tickets are $25.00/person.
