Karen Smith

Karen Smith, Oil on Ampersand gessobord, 5 x 7"

Windows rattled in frames. Crumbs danced on the floor.  The cat hid.   

Out on the avenue the Fairmount Art Fest was happening.  Across the street a makeshift tent threw thin shade on a gathering of hot musicians.  I caught a front row seat for drummer Karen Smith.  On a single djembe drum, Karen beat the whole steaming avenue into a dance party.

Karen Smith leads two musical groups: Weez The Peeple and Sistahs Laying Down Hands With Love.
