Jake Brillhart & Alex Smith Live from Caffe Lena
October 24 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Jake Brillhart and Alex Smith is the duo project of fiddler Jake Brillhart and singer-songwriter Alex Smith. Alex Smith grew up in Long Lake, in the rural heart of New York’s Adirondack Park, and his music strives first and foremost to echo the people and culture of that area. He builds songs from a blend of traditional folk harmony and strikingly modern lyrics, confronting today’s most pressing issues with a style of honest and accurate observation often compared to songwriters Stan Rogers and Jason Isbell. Brillhart and Smith have toured extensively for the past five years performing Brillhart’s Cape Breton-influenced fiddle tunes and Smith’s finely-crafted folk ballads, and the result is a show that is both energetic and contemplative, and that has captivated audiences from Iowa to Maine.
