Real Hillbilly music from the Ozarks at the Ocean! Ain't no imitaion here...

They are adored in their native Ozarks, but also enjoy capacity crowds in nearby cities: St. Louis, Kansas City, Columbia, Memphis, Lawrence, Fayetteville, Little Rock, and Tulsa, in addition to many other towns, hamlets, and hayfields. They have made their mark outside their region with several forays to Chicago, Nashville, Austin, and tours to the West Coast and along the length of the Mississippi from the Twin Cities to New Orleans. They have recently enjoyed high-profile gigs with the likes of Emmylou Harris, Doc Watson and the Del McCoury band. Big Smith is back on the road in 2007, beginning with a west coast jaunt in February.

The documentary "Homemade Hillbilly Jam," profiling the band and the music of their extended family, has garnered rave reviews and a legion of new fans through numerous screenings at film festivals around the world.
