Acoustic music with driving rhythms and Celtic/Scottish undercurrents, passionate delivery, and unique harmonies.


Smithfield Fair is a song-driven musical trio with close warm harmonies, driving rhythms, and a variety of acoustic instruments, including guitar, mandolin, bagpipes, accordion, and bodhran. The music has massive energy and passion and the songwriting is subtle, concise and intriguing. Critics have hailed their original material, and it regularly receives radio airplay worldwide. Singer/guitarists Jan and Dudley-Brian Smith founded the group in 1989 and drummer Frang Bladen was added in 1995. The trio has a long-standing reputation for fiery performances and polished passions. Family and cultural connections merge to create a unique sound and musical experience that has awed and excited audiences all over the world through live performances and radio. Smithfield Fair is joined on this recording by superbly understated acoustic bassist Bob Smith, aggresively innovative guitarist David Praet and fiddler Gina Forsyth of the Malvinas. The trio draws on Celtic backgrounds and world-travel and this prohibits any limitation by culture or heritage. Truly world music, the sound has a unique acoustic and vocal overcoating that gives it an enigmatic timeless, depth and warmth. Critics agree that Jan Smith's voice leaves the listener feeling he/she has just had a one-on-one conversation, while the combination of Dudley's guitar work and Frang's drumming creates an enormous underpinning for the songs. A lot of sound for a trio. Find Smithfield Fair and their music on the web at
