Opener – Geoff Noble
“There’s no doubt that Andrew and Zach excel on their own musically but having them together, accompanying each other with drums, mandolin, dobro and pitch perfect harmonies is just spectacular”castanet.net
Andrew and Zachari Smith are a folk, alt-country and tap-style guitar father/son duo. They are accomplished songwriters, engaging storytellers and multi-instrumentalists. Andrew and Zachari bring their many talents to audiences with ease; their voices meld, like only families can, and they perform in relaxed synchronicity. The Smiths have been touring Europe and Canada together since 2009 and in 2011 they released their first duo cd ‘travelling’.
Andrew is one of very few Canadians to have won the prestigious Kerrville Newfolk Songwriting Competition. He is also a “world class” tap style guitarist. Critics have said that Andrew Smith “plays like Don Ross (finger-style guitar champion) and sounds like James Taylor”. Zachari’s songwriting is a sweet blend of original folk and alt-country. His political subject matter harkens back to early Dylan coupled with beatlesque sensibilities. Andrew is a seasoned musician who has toured much of the world playing folk clubs, festivals and house concerts to enthusiastic audiences. Zachari has toured Canada and the US solo and with his band ‘The Geese’.
