SMITH ALLEN PETERSON
Beverly Smith, Kellie Allen, and Pete Peterson, award-winning players of Old-Time Music, have combined their talents to form Smith Allen Peterson, aka SAP. Beverly (fiddle, guitar, mandolin), Kellie (guitar, bass, mandolin) Pete (banjo, guitar, autoharp).
This power-house old-time trio has it all: hot fiddling and banjo-picking, driving guitar backup, with thrilling vocal harmonies on the old songs.
And on new songs, too! Beverly writes compelling songs. SAP sings them in three-part harmony. Also: Carter Family songs, Charlie Poole songs (Pete owns one of Charlie Poole’s banjos!), and favorite and obscure early country and old-time songs.
Instrumental chops? They have them, and ribbons to prove it. Icing on the cake? The trio is sometimes joined by Victoria’s best, Ian Alexander, who works clawhammer banjo magic. This old-time supergroup will rock your world!
Not only can they play, but they can also teach. Workshops, lessons, demonstrations, you name it. They love showing other how to play, sing, and make music together. Their motto is “spread the joy!”
Smith Allen Peterson will come and play for you!
