Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Steve Smith, based in Las Cruces, New Mexico, will be bringing his music – and his band, Hard Road – back east for a number of shows in February 2006. Steve is a native of eastern Virginia, and adept at interpreting a variety of bluegrass and traditional folk music styles, as showcased on his four solo CD projects.
Steve is a popular solo artist in the southwest, and is often chosen as an instructor at major mandolin camps and workshops. He is joined in Hard Road by Bob Hull on guitar, Elijah Copeland on bass, Chris Sanders on vocals, and Wayne Shrubsall on banjo. Smith is mandolinist with the group.
They will be doing concerts in MD, WV and VA during the first week of February. Details can be found on Steve’s web site.
MP3 audio files from a number of Steve’s recordings can also be found on his web site.
