Geoff Smith of Gunner & Smith @The Sentient Bean 

FOLK UP your Friday at The Sentient Bean with Gunner & Smith’s Americana-laced folk. The Saskatchewan-based project combines evocative storytelling with graceful arrangements, wispy guitar, and robust vocals for fans of Fleet Foxes and noir-tinged folk.

What began as singer-songwriter Geoff Smith’s folk project in 2010 has sprawled into a full indie country rock band. The project has morphed and evolved over the years, but their latest, a debut full-length entitled He Was Once A Good Man, solidifies the group’s alt-country direction with moody dips, jangly percussion, and warm harmonies. Smith credits time in the studio and working with producers Jordan Smith, Scott Neufeld, and Ryan Boldt for the solidification of Gunner & Smith’s sound. Sessions were rooted in spontaneity; live takes captured the essence and immediacy of the players’ dynamics.

Smith is embarking on a solo tour, so audiences will get to hear stripped-down versions of the matured Gunner & Smith.

Friday, February 26, 8 p.m., free, all-ages
