New Career
Hands High

The music of Valerie Smith is firmly rooted in the musical soil of her Missouri childhood. One listen to the conviction of Valerie’s voice as she delivers a tune lets you know that she is no hot-house flower, but was raised in a real world of both hardships and joys. Valerie’s delivery can range from the force of a prairie twister to the gentle softness of a spring rain. Once a public school teacher in rural Missouri, Valerie’s music has taken her from coast-to-coast and around the world. She has become an ambassador of bluegrass music and has entertained music lovers in New York, London, Berlin, Dublin, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and hundreds of other venues throughout the USA, Canada, the United Kingdom and Europe. She has been the recipient of IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) awards and was a Grammy nominee.
Valerie Smith with Liberty Pike will perform on Sunday, March 15 at the Lions Club Seafood Festival in St. Augustine.
