Sunapee, N.H. — Coming to the Sunapee Community CoffeeHouse on Friday, February 27 is Adirondack folk singer Alex Smith, who brings a rich voice to poignant and thought-provoking songs. The music starts at 7 p.m. at the Sunapee Methodist Church (downstairs), 9 Lower Main Street.
Smith grew up in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains in Long Lake, N.Y., where he began writing and playing traditional folk songs in his early teens. He hasn’t stopped since. Smith is now touring behind his studio album release Hamilton County (Wepecket Island Records).
Enjoy a preview via YouTube, Smith performing “The Ballad of Blue Mountain Lake,” which was in the Emmy award-winning documentary “Songs to Keep: Treasures of an Adirondack Folk Collector” (Mountain Lake PBS production).
The Sunapee CoffeeHouse is an all-volunteer, community-based concert series. The venue is for both professionals and amateurs who wish to play in a quiet setting with an attentive audience. There is no cover charge but the CoffeeHouse will pass the hat for the musicians and to help cover venue expenses. For directions, performance or volunteer info, visit: www.sunapeecoffeehouse.org.
