Laura Smith and her songs to be celebrated by East Coast artists at tribute concert

As members of the East Coast musical community mourn the loss of singer-songwriter Laura Smith, they’re also preparing a tribute.

The 67-year-old musician died at her home in Mahone Bay, N.S., on Saturday after receiving palliative care for cancer.

Recording artist Bruce Guthro, who often included Smith in his songwriting circles, says artists will gather on March 29 to perform a selection of songs that illustrate the poetic quality of her lyrics.

Smith was known for a warm voice, which reviewers have described as soulful, white hot and filled with wit.
