Gerrard, Smith and Jones House
Alice Gerrard, the “Indisputable Queen of Old-Time Music,” and celebrated guitarist and fiddler Beverly Smith will be giving a limited-seating performance at the Jones House Nov. 6, starting at 7 p.m.
Gerrard is the founding editor of the Old-Time Herald and has had a musical career recording, performing and documenting traditional American musical styles.

She worked on projects with numerous tradition bearers, including Tommy Jarrell, Enoch Rutherford, Otis Burris, Luther Davis and Matokie Slaughter.
She has also recorded and toured with Mike Seeger, Brad Leftwich, Tom Sauber and many others, including Beverly Smith.
Smith is one of the most respected musicians in old-time music, known for her guitar playing, fiddling and dance calling.
She was a founding member of the Heartbeats with Tara Nevins, June Drucker and Rose Sinclair. She was a member of Big Hoedown with Bruce Molsky and Rafe Stefanini and also recorded three highly-praised albums with Carl Jones.
She has recorded with Irish musicians Mick Moloney and John Doyle, bluegrass great Laurie Lewis and many old-time musicians, including Art Rosenbaum, Brad Leftwich, Tom Sauber, Mac Trynham and Rayna Gellert.
