Virtual Live Concert Series: Aaron Smith
The Momentary is bringing artists LIVE into your home with our Virtual Live Concert Series! Enjoy dance parties to acoustic sessions by local, regional, and international artists every other weekend.
This week, join us for a performance by Northwest Arkansas-based singer-songwriter Aaron Smith!
About the show, Aaron says, “We’re going to have ourselves a time exploring the winding highways, dirt roads and wooded hills of rural Arkansas in song and follow a few rabbit trails to Florida, the produce aisle, and the distant future. Ryan Gentry will be joining on percussion and harmony and will probably be permitted to tell a joke or two.”
About AARON SMITH
Aaron Smith is a man on a mission, but he’s no preacher. His songs hold a mirror to the mystery of human experience, searching for the meaning of home, love, family, aging, kindness, doubt, faith, and grace. In vignettes injected with an infectious and persistent sense of hope and humor, the unlikely heroes of his songs — grandmothers and grandfathers, street preachers and neighbors, the forgotten and lonely — find courage, salvation and a couple of laughs in the everyday. He’s been featured many times on Rich Warren’s Midnight Special radio show, and KUAF Fayetteville’s Ozarks at Large. Aaron’s songcraft has earned him recognition as a winner (2019) in the nationally renowned New Folk songwriting competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas. He also recently won the BMG Songwriter Showcase at the Power of Music Festival and the Visit Bentonville’s Songwriter competition. His first album The Way the World Turns was released in 2015. His next album The Legend of Sam Davis is anticipated in late 2020 and features songs inspired by Arkansas folk tales.
