Bryan Elijah Smith with Jay Austin at Pale Fire Brewing Co.
Friday, August 4th
Hailing from the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, Smith’s unique and haunting vocals will leave you with a sense of timeless nostalgia. With over 1500 songs written, 12 independent releases spanning various genres, his music has been compared to the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Gregory Alan Isakov. Smith is a two-time winner of the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at MerleFest and his song ‘In Through The Dark’ was featured in the NETFLIX series ‘Virgin River’, which was also nominated for an Independent Music Award in the ‘Used In Film/TV’ category in 2020. Smith will be joined by the talented Jay Austin on violin, who has been performing with him since 2010, and together they promise to deliver an electrifying performance that will move both your feet and soul.
