Andrew Smith is an accomplished instrumentalist and singer-songwriter who has been busy playing folk clubs, festivals and concerts - both as a solo performer and as a duo with his son Zachari. His live shows combine his award-winning talent as a singer-songwriter with his superb instrumentation. He plays original instrumental pieces, which often feature his unique 'tap' style, as well as singing songs about his travels and loves, along with an occasional political rant.

Andrew has released three solo albums, his most recent, Into the Woods, in May of 2010. He has won numerous awards including the prestigious 2006 Kerrville New Folk Competition on the strength of his songs "Rite of Passage" and "Holes in the Night Sky". His songs have received honourable mention at the Singer-Songwriter Awards and The Mid-Atlantic Song Contest, and have been shortlisted for the International Songwriting Contest.

Zachari Smith is a one-of-a-kind mix of original folk and alternative country. His songwriting and voice harken back to early Dylan and are coupled with Beatlesque sensibilities. He speaks to the political, social and cultural problems of the global society, but moves beyond simple critique with visions for the future. His deep poetic insights and strong political satire are coupled with an original voice and strong musical acuity.

Over the last three years Andrew and Zachari have been touring extensively. They released their first album, Travelling, in 2011 and will be releasing their second collaboration this fall. Their last appearance on our stage, in the fall of 2010, was met with critical acclaim.
