What do James Taylor, The Monkees, Merle Haggard, Saturday Night Live, and Back to the Future all have in common? They were all major influences on a guy who is known around the Washington DC area as an outstanding singer-songwriter and performer, Ken Smith.
Ken received his first guitar at the age of 11 and immediately began to learn the tunes and styles of his favorite artists, and to hone his skills as a musician. From his early years as a performer at high school events, and even providing the only source of music for a small country church in Virginia, Ken has always been most at home in front of an audience.
As he began to develop his talent as a songwriter, Ken discovered and began to share a boundless reservoir of songs and stories. Many of ken’s songs are taken from life’s experiences and show a picture of the life he has made with his childhood sweetheart, Anna and the family they raised together. Faith, family, and friends have always been the top priorities for Ken and this is certainly evident in his songs and performances.
Ken Smith will share his musical gifts during the worship service on Sunday, January 19, as part of our Third Sunday Guest Musician ministry.
