Smithfield Fair - Brick, Stick & Mortar
~ CD Review ~
Oct 16, 2013
Smithfield Fair is a polished and accomplished group. They have all the ingredients of the early classic folk groups – instrumental proficiency, good voices and songwriting ability. Their website says they have been together for forty years and have twenty-eight albums to their name, so they’ve been doing this since they were babies!
The first two songs, “A Second Cup of Coffee” and “Sweet Sugar Cane,” both have catchy tunes – in fact, I had “Sweet Sugar Cane” playing in my head for weeks. The thirteen songs were all written last year – these folks really have their creative juices flowing. All of the compositions seem to come from personal experiences. They are gifted with an ability to take everyday, ordinary situations that anyone can identify with and convey them into songs that address those experiences.
This is a really catchy, touching, gem of an album. To find out more, check out their website at smithfieldfair.com.
