Music in the Gardens series with The Tender Fruit 

When: Wed., June 19, 7 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-12, free for 12 & under

Christy Smith uses the alt-country of her former band Nola as a springboard to delve deeper into indie-influenced, folk-based songwriting with The Tender Fruit. Her lonesome, lovelorn tunes are graced by her stunningly gorgeous voice, tinged with Carolina-bred country twang. Smith's warble is set mostly to sparse, heartwrenching ballads, though an occasional spry pop ditty belies her painfully beautiful lyrics. Guests from local outfits with expansive takes on roots music join her: ex-Midtown Dickens co-leader and current Loamlands partner Kym Register, and Bombadil drummer and Sumner James principal James Phillips. —Spencer Griffith
