A full house at Dreamers Folk enjoyed the music & songs of Beverly Smith last night at the Sportsmans Arms. On her first solo tour, Beverly won us over with her genuine charm and obvious musical talents as she switched effortlessly between guitar, banjo and fiddle.
Spending her early years in California and finding music when her older sister took to playing the guitar, Beverly has migrated to North Carolina and along the way has played with, and learnt from, some of the greats in oldtime music . After many years of supporting others, she is now stepping out of the shadows and her inner music is coming to the fore. The Dreamers audience were treated to several self-penned numbers which received an immediate thumbs-up with many voices joining in with repeated lines and choruses, even humming along with the instrumental breaks!
All too soon the evening was over, Beverly has made many new friends here in West Cornwall and hopefully, it won’t be too long before we invite her back to do it all again.
