Smith and Adams

Smith and Adams - LCCCA reciprocity concert

March 18, 2012
3:00 p.m.

Wide Variety Guitar and Bass
Can you imagine a full orchestra playing in your living room? Or two lovers flirting in a symphony hall? It's a little bit of both that you get from world renowned finger¬style guitarist Richard Smith and his wife, versatile cellist Julie Adams – and they serve so much more.

Richard is widely regarded as one of the premier fingerstyle guitarists of our time. He has tou¬red the world as a solo artist, with the Richard Smith Guitar Trio and with his swing band, The Hot Club of Nashville, featuring Stu¬art Duncan on fiddle, Pat Bergeson on guitar and Charlie Chadwick on bass. Fellow gui¬tar wizard Tommy Emmanuel prefers Richard as one of his favourite duet partners.

Julie has also branched into folk music, playing a significant role on Glenn and Holly Yarbrough’s album "Family Portrait". She later teamed up with well-known gui¬tarist Muriel Anderson to tour extensively throughout the US.

At home, Julie is a sought-after session player and has been featured on top ten albums as well as major film scores such as the soundtrack of the box office hit "Bridget Jo¬nes's Diary" in 2001 and the Grammy winning CD "Beautiful Dreamer: the songs of Stephen Foster" in 2003.

Audiences delight in the eclectic mix of Julie’s emotional depth and Richard’s flaw¬less technique, when they embark on a journey through clever arrangements, swa¬ping melodies, countermelodies, rhythm and basslines, and earning them rave reviews around the world. They are truly soul mates – in life and in music!

“He is one of the world’s greatest guitarists.”

-- Muriel Anderson (All-Star Guitar Night)

“Julie Adams is the best cellist in town.”

-- Pat Bergeson (Chet Atkins, Lyle Lovett, Madeleine Peyroux)
