More about the artists:


"Frederick Smock is a smart, sensible, and witty guide who will lead you into the house of poetry and describe its many rooms. He is an insider, a poet himself, and a therapist who specializes in relieving the symptoms of poetry-phobia."
— Billy Collins

Frederick Smock is a poet-in-residence at Bellarmine University, Louisville, where he received the Wyatt Faculty Award in 2005. He has published three books of poetry with Larkspur Press, with individual poems in The Iowa Review, The Southern Review, Shenandoah, and many others. He is the recipient of the Leadingham Poetry Prize and the Jim Wayne Miller Prize for Poetry. Mr. Smock is married to the writer Olga-Maria Cruz.

Jared Smith is a prominent figure in contemporary poetry, technology research, and professional continuing education. Having earned his BA cum laude and his MA in English and American Literature from New York University, he spent many years in industry and research. Starting in 1976, he rose to Vice President of The Energy Bureau, Inc. in New York; relocated to Illinois, where he became Associate Director of both Education and Research for an international not-for-profit research laboratory (IGT); advised several White House Commissions on technology and policy under the Clinton Administration; and left industry in 2001, after serving as Special Appointee to Argonne National Laboratory.

One of the most exciting new bands to emerge on the national bluegrass scene in the new millennium, NewFound Road specializes in a powerfully streamlined sound delivered with heartfelt honesty and passion. The bands' three equally capable, yet distinct vocalists, who are also formidable instrumentalists and songwriters, ensure that each song is executed with both emotion and precision- be it a bluesy solo vocal, soaring three part harmony or a solemn a cappella gospel treatment. Instrumentally, NFR is a role model for the modern self-contained bluegrass ensemble, providing both sympathetic accompaniment and thrilling, hard-driving solos. NewFound Road is contemporary bluegrass at its most soulful and sincere.
