South Coast Botanic Garden, 26300 Crenshaw Boulevard
Palos Verdes, CA 90247 United States

Singer Songwriter, Shevy Smith Location: Rose Garden 11 am – 3 pm   Shevy Smith, Country Singer-songwriter’s album “Ad Astra” , like all her music, reconciles Smith’s musical passions into a taut set of free-flowing melodic nuggets: There’s the rough-and-tumble backroads-honesty of Lucinda Williams; Tom Petty’s down-home rock; Bonnie Raitt’s blues-drenched womanly grit. Permeating it all is Shevy’s voice — warm like fleece — spilling tales of pain, confusion, and ultimately love.
