We are very excited to have local artist Jennie Smith share her beautifully rendered illustrations and sign her recently published book The Littlest Birds Sing the Prettiest Songs at the Low Tide Club, Saturday, December 8, from 4-7 p.m.
Our love affair with folk songs runs as deep as the enduring power of music, nature, creativity, and the longings of the human heart. Artist Jennie Smith celebrates the tradition with her illustrated renderings of thirteen soulful songs, including time-honored Scottish ballads, classics by the likes of the Carter Family, contemporary favorites by Gillian Welch, Little Wings, and more. Smith’s art—hopeful, sincere, and delicate—adds an unexpected and charming dimension to a familiar genre. With a foreword from contemporary folk legend Michael Hurley, complete lyrics, and playable tablature or sheet music for each song, this is a keepsake collection for the whole family to treasure.
