Andrew is one of very few Canadians to have won the prestigious Kerrville Newfolk Songwriting Competition. He is also a “world class” tap style guitarist. It has been said that Andrew Smith “plays like Don Ross (finger-style guitar champion) and sounds like James Taylor”. Zachari’s songwriting is a sweet blend of original folk and alt-country. His political subject matter harkens back to early Dylan coupled with beatlesque sensibilities. Andrew is a seasoned musician who has toured much of the world playing folk clubs, festivals and house concerts to enthusiastic audiences. Zachari has toured Canada and the US solo and with his band ‘The Geese’. He also released two solo albums over the last 4 years. This father/son duo bring their many talents to audiences with ease; Their voices meld, like only families can, and they perform in relaxed synchronicity.
