Album Notes
Entering their 21st year, the singer/songwriters of Smithfield Fair return to a sound reminiscent of their former days as Charmer. A polished acoustic-pop sound displays the diversity that has become a staple of their albums - mixing Celtic, pop, folk, jazz, gospel, classical and rock elements. This album features special appearances by Terry Kirkman (recorder, writer of "Cherish" and founding member of The Association), Steve Conn (John Hiatt, Shelby Lynn, Bonnie Raitt, Sonny Landreth), Mark Menikos (Brothers 3, Bard's Crossing, Texas Gypsies), guitarist J. David Praet (The Dots), and percussion by Merel Bregante (The Sunshine Company, Loggins & Messina, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Poco, Sarah Pierce). Possibly a nod to the "sunshine pop" harmonies of the folk-rock era, the songs on the album are fun, full of energy, and thoughtful. Between their days as Charmer and Smithfield Fair, this trio represents four decades of songcraft and performance energy. It's all apparent on this album.
