Christy Smith of The Tender Fruit

The Tender Fruit, Beauty World 

When: Sun., Feb. 12, 3 p.m. 2017
Price: $8-$10

It's been a long while since we last heard from Christy Smith, the woman responsible for The Tender Fruit, who's taken some time away from the stage to focus on family life. This weekend, though, she's stepping out for intimate afternoon affair at Rebus Works, a multipurpose arts space in Raleigh. Smith is a gifted songwriter with a knack for penning tunes that are as gorgeous as they are heartbreaking. Her first album, 2010's Flotsam & Krill, was a gentle, mostly acoustic collection. But for 2014's The Darkness Comes, Smith upped her own ante by adding gnarled electric guitar and full-band arrangements, which lend additional weight to her already mighty writing. Smith is one of the area's strongest talents, and this one-off from her is a rare treat indeed. Durham's charming Beauty World co-headlines. —Allison Hussey

Correction: This piece originally said Beauty World was opening. The band is co-headlining and performs second.
