Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike at the Carroll Arts Center
Carroll Arts Center, Westminster MD

Valerie Smith has developed a unique style and sound that has rocked the bluegrass world for almost two decades with a string of national and international tours, critically acclaimed recordings, and Grammy, International Bluegrass Music Association and Dove Award nominations. Val’s vocals are impressive. She has a staggeringly expansive range and the ability to portray an amazing array of emotion. As NPR radio host Dave Higgs, has noted, “She can be sassy, sultry, siren-like, sweet, smooth, soothing and smoldering—sometimes during the span of just one song!” Valerie Smith and her East Coast-based band, Liberty Pike featuring legendary Hall of Famer, Tom Gray on bass, are consistent audience pleasers and skilled musicians. Valerie’s hit single, “Red Clay Halo,” climbed the Bluegrass Unlimited (BU), Country Music and Americana reporting charts and was included in the BU top 60 songs of the decade.
