LaDonna Smith

Derk Richardson, San Francisco Bay Guardian, April 07, 2005

This adventurous violinist and vocalist resides in Birmingham, Ala., where she rarely leaves, letting such CD’s as the recent Eye of the Storm (TransMuseq) do her traveling for her. But when she takes her fiddle and voice into the world, creating orchestral textures where jazz improv, bluegrass, contemporary classical, Celtic, and countless other influences commingle, the world is never the same again.
