Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike

Missouri native Valerie Smith is best known as an energetic bluegrass singer/songwriter whose artistry transcends genre labels. “I sing from my heart,” she says. "I like bluegrass, I like country, and sometimes I like what’s just a really heartfelt song that says something about people, not just me. I try to find things that everyone can relate to when they hear them — the kind of songs that you hear and say to yourself, ‘that said what I was thinking.’" Valerie's  band includes Tom Gray, Joe Zauner, Jim Clark, Lisa Kay Howard-Hughes, and Wally Hughes.  More info:

8 p.m. at the Unitarian Fellowship Hall, 420 Willa Road, Newark, Del. 19711

Tickets online soon or at the door: Public $20; Seniors $17; BFOTM Members $15; Students with school ID $10; Ages 17 & under FREE!

Memories from Festivals Past

Our official Festival Photographer, Priscilla Warnock, now has a selection of photos she has taken at the Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festivals for sale on her web site.  This includes many from the 2008, 2009 and 2010 festivals and a selection of shots from previous festivals, too.  You have probably seen her work on the festival web site, in bluegrass magazines like Bluegrass Unlimited and even on a number of bluegrass CDs.
