Father and Son duo

I truly hope that the name Andrew Smith isn't new to you but if it is please take a moment and get acquainted by his award winning  tap style guitar playing in the first video here:
He has been performing around Kelowna for as long as I can remember. His son, Zachari Smith followed in his footsteps and has been carving out a musical career for himself over the past decade or so.
As you'll see below in the video for their Zach's song "Chemicals" he's a provocative lyricist whose also one of those multi-instrumentalists that can seemingly perform any instrument he lays his hands on. 
So this Saturday they are releasing their second album as a duo act, Stumbling Horse, at the Bohemian Cafe. Space is limited but they assure me it will be a fun night listening to music and socializing. Although not  listed publicly there will be numerous special guests joining them at the event. This show will kick of a long season of touring starting with some shows in the Prairies in the following weeks. The tickets are only $20 and they can be bought online at their website: http://andrewandzacharismith.com/home.html
