45 years, 31 albums (thus far)

Updated: February 4, 2018

2018 - The world shifted again for us in late 2017 with the passing of our beloved mother, Anna Rose, at 98+. She loved to dance and had been a radio singer during the Big Band era. She influenced her children in the arts and her sense of joy inspired us all. She will be missed, but what a wonderful, joyous life she lived. For Bob, Jan and I, we continue to take our time with new projects - especially a new album - and will selectively accept performances that seem "right" for Smithfield Fair, now in our 46th season. We look forward to seeing you all at some point and thank you for your continued support of us and our uncommon music. Be well! dbs
Remember - Smithfield Fair's 31st album - EVERMORE - is available on the kiosk below or from CDBaby and Amazon

"Smithfield Fair, what a concert, what a night! Dudley-Brian Smith, the consummate entertainer, connects one by one, with each and every face in the room as he sings. I've always loved his mischievous "I know something you don't" twinkle in his eyes. He's ever the charming rogue. Bobby Smith's performance style seems more ethereal. He often closes his eyes, intensely feeling every note, every lyric, but then, when you least expect it, he will almost burst into a jig as pure joy takes hold of him. (Go ahead and bust a move, Bobby--there are those of us who will join in the dance!) And of course, center stage: the luminous muse, Jan Smith. Her voice is beyond gorgeous--it's hard to take your eyes off of her. (And husband Dudley hasn't, for 32 years!) Jan doesn't need a spotlight, she IS a spotlight! As if the night couldn't get any better, they sang one of my favorites for the encore. Thank you, my friends, for a magical night." - Lane Voltz Barry

For over four decades, the focus of Smithfield Fair has been harmony vocals and original songs deftly placed over acoustic instrumentation. Smithfield Fair has presented its heartfelt original music and arrangements of traditional songs across the United States on concert and festival stages; in historic venues and theatres; at large events such as the World's Fair, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Kerrville Folk Festival; as well as in the most intimate coffeehouses, cafes and house concerts. Flowers In Her Hair, Longships, James of the Glen, God Never Sleeps, Flying High and other Smithfield Fair songs have become popular internationally through constant radio, satellite and internet airplay. Smithfield Fair continues to be a true original, creating hopeful and imaginative songs, and performing them with passion, honesty and humor.
