Jessie May Smart - Violinist - Violinist - Ascot, South East Event Location: Cropredy Event Type: Cropredy Festival 13th August 2016
Classically trained Smart stormed through jigs, quasi-orchestral riffs and bursts of electric violin that were redolent of Sugarcane Harris on Frank Zappa's "Hot Rats" album. Folk-rock personified, perhaps with the emphasis on the rock. Smart's improvisational antics add a new dimension to the band's [Steeleye Span's] traditional offerings that both gives it a fresh sound and bodes well for the future.
