ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Roadrunner is The Smith Sisters third CD, and features the playing of luminaries Doc Watson, Mark O'Connor, and dobro player Mike Auldridge. Their harmonies are never tighter and lovlier than when they sing on this album, which has a acoustic country-folk sound.

The Smith Sisters attracted attention when their debut album, Bluebird, released in 1983, was produced by the late Merle Watson and featured guest appearances by top-ranked bluegrass pickers including Sam Bush, Mark O'Connor, Doc Watson and T. Michael Coleman. But, it was their octave-spanning vocal harmonies that truly showcased their musical strengths.

Although they've followed their own paths, Philadelphia-born Debi Smith and her younger sister Megan continue to reflect country warmth and harmonious texture as The Smith Sisters, and still occasionally perform together.

Debi Smith, who also performs and records with the Four Bitchin' Babes, remains at the core of The Smith Sisters' sound. Equally skilled at acoustic guitar, bodhran and piano and possessor of a three-octave vocal range, Smith writes most of the duo's songs and sings lead. Megan keeps arrangements anchored on electric bass and sings harmonies that blend naturally with her sister.
