Putnam Smith & Sorcha

Event Date: 
Sunday, November 18, 2012 - 8:00pm
Venue: 

Putnam Smith, who hails from Portland, Maine, could be an old-world troubadour fresh from the 19th Century. After all, he lives in a log cabin, plays his Grandfather's banjo, and prints up the jackets to his CDs on an antique letterpress. Yet this rootsy multi-instrumentalist songwriter (he also writes and performs on guitar, mandolin, fretless banjo, and piano), steeped as he is in Appalachian traditions, is very much a storyteller for the modern age. putnamsmith.com

Sorcha’s voice packs a punch. Weilding acoustic guitar and clawhammer banjo alongside “sultry and jazzy” vocals, she “unveils a suite of musical styles that shows a wide-ranging songwriting ability. . .witty verses with smart rhymes” (Sam Pfeifle, Portland Pheonix). Early on, she was steeped in the jazz of Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone, her father's folk tradition and his funk past time. Bluegrass and blues infatuations followed. howlinrecords.com
