Alex Smith performing at the Old Firehouse on Friday, April 21 @ 7:30 pm

Alex Smith brings Adirondack Mountain Sounds to the Old Firehouse
Alex Smith grew up in Long Lake, in the heart of New York’s Adirondack Park, and his music strives first and foremost to echo the people of that area. He builds songs from a blend of traditional folk harmony and strikingly modern lyrics, confronting today’s most pressing issues with grace while paying homage to the masters who came before him. Alex is new to the Firehouse, but the Crew listened to his recordings and is delighted to be able to present him.
Smith’s mother is a historian and his father is a writer and boat builder. Their influence is evident in his attention to detail: each of Smith’s characters, though fictional, lives and breathes a balance between beauty and imperfection. His stories draw on the triumphs and hardships of friends, relatives, and neighbors near and far.
Alex Smith is the second concert in the Tinmouth Old Firehouse Concert Series, at 7:30 on April 21.
The Tinmouth Old Firehouse Crew is made up of eight Tinmouth volunteers who do everything from sweeping floors to writing the publicity. That’s why 90% of the donations go to the performers, with 10% to the Town of Tinmouth towards the cost of maintaining the Old Firehouse. Our regular folks know that we raffle off two free tickets for any future concert every time.
All concerts are on Friday nights at 7:30 PM in Tinmouth village. Doors open at 7 PM. The Old Firehouse is on Mountain View Road just a couple of hundred feet south of the intersection with Vermont 140. Suggested donation of $10 to $15; 90% to the musicians; 10% to the Town. Local groups provide refreshments. Your donations support their activities.
