ALBUM REVIEW: The Grace Smith Trio – Overleaf | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Reliably informed


Released: 29.09.23








English folk dance fans of the North East, rejoice! The Grace Smith Trio prepare to release their anticipated debut album, Overleaf, and it exceeds expectations.

Miss Cole sets the tone with a beautiful and unexpected marriage between strings and concertina, and as the album continues, we travel through fast and high energy songs until we are halted by the delightful opening of Feather Waltz. The experience of an album relies on the structure of the playlist, and the Grace Smith Trio know exactly when to slow us down before bringing us gently back again into the dance.
This collection ends with the same feeling of joy it began with, creating a musical circular narrative with Saison/Overleaf in an electric guitar and string combo.
