Magazine describes her songs as “smart and uplifting . . . focusing on the quiet meaning to be found in ordinary life.” Christine Lavin calls her songwriting “wonderful,” and the folk-pop duo The Kennedys laud her “catchy melodies and insightful lyrics.”

At Home In This Town, was released in November 2010. It was produced by Dave Chalfant and include backing musicians Tracy Grammer, Jim Henry, Pete and Maura Kennedy, Jenny Goodspeed, and Adam Sweeney. Beth's songwriting influences include Dave Carter and Richard Shindell.

Beth has opened for such folk luminaries as John McCutcheon, Rod MacDonald, Pete Morton, and the Nields, and played at venues like Club Passim and Johnny D's. Her songs have been honored in national and international songwriting contests, and she has made special guest appearances at major folk festivals (Boston, New Bedford Summerfest, Strawberry Park).
