Andy Smith & The Smith Family Download www.raremusez.co.uk
Anyone who frequented Acoustic, Folk and Country Music Clubs around Coventry and Warwickshire throughout the 60’s and 70’s would know Andy Smith. Multi instrumentalist and fabled bluegrass banjo player. With his sister Jan, The Smith Family and various ensembles including Down County Boys and the Ian Campbell Folk Group all featuring Andy’s dynamic musical fluency across banjo, guitar, mandolin and fiddle. He also had one of the best high and lonesome vocals ever, creating with Jan those harmonies that only siblings can. His untimley death aged 61 in 2007 after more than twelve years with Lewy Bodies disease took away a unique talent. We are delighted to offer this collection of songs from Andy’s wife Barbara.
