Smith Allen Peterson USA

Beverly Smith, Kellie Allen, and Pete Peterson, award-winning players of American 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 old-time trio has it all: hot fiddling and banjo-picking, driving guitar backup, with thrilling vocal harmonies on 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 favourite and obscure early country and old-time songs. Instrumental chops? They have them, and ribbons to prove it. Icing on the cake? The trio will be joined on some numbers 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 others how to play, sing, and make music together. Their motto is “spread the joy!”
