American place names never fail to fascinate...information from the Lewiston Sun Journal popped up in The Commonty inbox this morning, reporting on D+G's own Emily Smith and her tour dates in New England.
'UNITY -- New England Celtic Arts will present highly acclaimed Scottish performer Emily Smith at Unity College Center for the Performing Arts in Unity on Tuesday Oct. 4, and at Skye Theatre Performing Arts Center in South Carthage and on Wednesday Oct. 5. Curtain at unity is 7:30 p.m. and at Skye it's 7 p.m. Preshow jam sessions at Skye and Unity start one hour prior to curtain.
Dumfries & Galloway's Emily Smith is one of the leading singers on the contemporary Scottish folk scene. Her powerful, clear vocals have gained her award-winning, worldwide recognition. As a songwriter, Smith has been called "a Scottish Joni Mitchell," but as a passionate collector she is equally adept at presenting fresh and evocative interpretations of traditional songs.'
