Please join us for a night of Appalachian folk music, storytelling and history with two
masters of the craft: Van Wagner and Jay Smar.
In the last 5 years, Jay Smar has toured Scotland twice, received recognition from
the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, performed at the Philadelphia Folk
Festival twice, recorded music for the Welsh BBC movie, "The Welsh in America"
and has been selected by the Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour to be on their
professional touring roster. Armed with 2 guitars, baritone vocals, claw-hammer
banjo, and fiddling, singing, and flat-footin ' (a form of clog-dancing), he serves his
audience an "acoustic buffet" of traditional American and original folk, ole' time
mountain music, bluegrass and gospel tunes, as well as coal mining songs of
Northeast Pennsylvania preceded by their origin. Original and "covered" guitar
instrumentals garnish this plate of cultural cuisine. Jay has shared the stage with
the likes of Norman Blake, Leo Kottke, Tom Paxton, John Hammond, Loudon
Wainright III, Tony Trischka and many others.
Born in Pennsylvania. Lives in Pennsylvania.
Makes music. Mined coal. Logged trees. Teaches kids. His music has been
featured on the History Channel, WVIA tv, as well as Country Music Television
(CMT). He has released 23 original albums and published a book entitled "Coal
Dust Rust and Saw Dust." His music and programs not only entertain but inspire
audiences to become involved in learning more about Appalachia and the local
history of its people and places.
