Upcoming shows: SMITHFIELD FAIR
Greetings everyone - We've had so many questions about upcoming performances that it seems the right time to send this announcement. We have three upcoming shows books and hope you'll mark you calendar for them:
APRIL 7, 2018 -- LOUISIANA TARTAN FESTIVAL (http://scottishsociety.wixsite.com/tartan-festival) at Scotland Farms in Minden, Louisiana. A small outdoor festival for the whole family centered on Scottish heritage and culture. Smithfield Fair will be concentrating on our Scottish repertoire and there is so much to do there. Check their website for directions and the schedule.
MAY 11, 2018 -- A-TOWN EVENINGS (http://www.louisiana-arts.org/performing-arts-series.php) a 7:00 p.m. concert series in downtown Alexandria in an intimate and fun setting with Smithfield Fair playing favorites from our original song catalog. This year our performance will be in the lobby at Coughlan-Saunders Performing Arts Center with tickets $15 in advance.
We're still working out the details for a June show in Baton Rouge and we'll let you know how that goes.
JULY 20-21, 2018 -- LOUISIANA FOLKLIFE FESTIVAL (https://louisianafolklife.nsula.edu/2018-natchitoches-nsu-folk-festival/) at Prather Coliseum in Natchitoches. The schedule hasn't been posted yet, but this is an amazing festival celebrating varying aspect of Louisiana culture and the theme this year is "Celebrating Louisiana's Folk Roots". We'll be performing a blend of traditional songs and tradition-based songs with connections to Louisiana culture.
Also, remember that our albums are available at all performances and from the kiosk to CDBaby on the Smithfield Fair website. Bob, Jan and I look forward to sharing our music with you and visiting with you. All the best….dbs
