Guest Book

Due to unblockable use by parasitic spammers, I've decided to close the Guest book. I have really enjoyed your comments over the years and I'm awfully disappointed that I can't continue to make the Guest book available for the fans who choose to write... We'll certainly keep trying to find a way to open it again.

Comments: I enjoyed your performance last night at the Civic Centre. You are a natural performer and I look forward this summer to see you perform as Marilla. Thank Laura for being the beauty you truly are. Love and Peace Diane

Comments: My newly found beau recently introduced me to your music, more specifically your "Vanity Pressed" CD. Your voice is truely amazing Laura and I cannot thank you enough for sharing this gift of yours. Recently I have been going through many challenges in my life and listening to your music brings a sort of tranquility over it all... I hope to see you play in Saint John, Fredericton or Moncton soon. I wish I would have known you were in Moncton recently as I would definately have gone to hear you. All the best! Cheers!

Comments: I am many years behind in my musical education, obviously. I read of Anne & Gilbert in the late spring, and as I was going to be vacationing in PEI, checked out ticket availability and saw the show the first Tuesday, after the Monday August holiday. I enjoyed it immensely, and in particular this Marilla woman, played by this person named Laura Smith. I had never heard of her, and the program had no material on the performers. One attendee said she was a veteran Maritimes performer. Fast forward to recent weeks when I stumbled over Vanity Pressed in an Ottawa shop and wondered, is it the same person? It seemed Canadian enough, but hard to tell because Marilla was somewhat, ah, older than Laura seemed to be . But I said I would google to check, and here I am at this website now. I just want to say, Laura, Anne & Gilbert was a great show, you were great, and I bought the CD soundtrack .already. And now I'm going back to buy Vanity Press at the CD store. Regards

Comments: Hi Laura, Tomorrow I turn 50. The last month I have been pondering life, what it is and what mine has been. I have come to the the profound recognition that more than likely I have fewer days ahead of me now than I have behind me. Tomorrow I am having a gathering of the important women in my life. I thought you should know that you should be there. Your music has inspired, moved, empowered, and lifted me. Thanks. I hope you come to Toronto soon. Peace, love and be groovy, Gloria

Comments: On Friday evening in Victoria By The Sea, i went to see Anne and Gilbert. It was as fine a production as i have ever seen. Laughed so hard but wept and wept when you sang your songs...you have such grace and a gentle power. Thanks for making pei home for a while. It is a play made for that theatre but if it has to go bigger to make money then consider the Jubilee in Summerside.

Comments: I heard My Bonnie yesterday on CBC radio, I went to HMV today to buy it and they told me that your albums are discontinued. I am so dissappointed. How can I buy that album? I need it... now that I have heard that amazing rendition, I must have it. I searched on the web and found this site... can you tell me where to find it? Many thanks for your beautiful voice. Mark

Comments: A message for Sandie from Australia since you didn't post an @ddress. I no longer have a distributor in Australia, but I send quite a few copies of my cd, "B'tween the Earth and My Soul" there via mail order. (Total cost is $30USD). B'tween... is the album where I originally recorded My Bonny or, you could purchase a copy of the compilation album "Fire in the Kitchen" where I recorded my version of My Bonny with the Chieftains. (labelled My Bonnie on that album) It was the wonderful Paddy Maloney of the Chieftains who arranged for My Bonny to be in "Agnes Browne" ... I'm so glad you took the time to let me know you enjoyed the song. Regards, Laura

I listened many, many, many times in a row to "My Bonnie" at midnight on my Ipod with a belly full of whiskey standing in the bright full moon looking at the ocean on a pounding beach in Byron Bay in Australia missing my Bonnie half a world away in Switzerland. Amazing experience !!!! Thanks for that !! I'll order a CD as soon as I return to the states. Cheers Bill www.shneedles.com

I must try and find Nanci O'Hearn now. Love, love, love your music, there are not enough good song writers and singers,luckily Cape Breton has got the fiddle well covered though with the likes of Mairi Rankin, Dwayne Cote, Raymond Ellis and a whole lot more.

Comments: I teach art to middleschoolers in Ferndale and have a 40 min. commute each way. When I cannot handle the daily news, which is frequent, I listen to CBC. Eric (not quite right) Goff has a fine 3-6 show daily, knows his music well and is highly eclectic. Soo, I was driving down Chuckanut Drive, hugging the bay and My Bonnie comes on, lighting the car with its bittersweet, almost painful beaute. I had to pull over and just listen. "Well," he says (eric or whatever his name is), "I've heard Laura Smith sing My Bonnie in many versions, but this is her best. On the Chieftains album, Fire in the Kitchen. I play it for my students at school, and when I played it for my very Irish (descended) husband, he cried. It is so stunningly beautiful. Thank you.

Comments: Laura, I saw you preform at the Vancouver Folk festival about 7 years ago, and yours was one of 2 CD's I bought, inspired by the performance of your Bonnie song. For a long time it was our official Saturday moring start off CD, but then after a couple of moves it ended up in the bottom of a box for a while. Recently, it emmerged and my one year old and I were swirling to your gorgeous melodies, rhythms, rich passionate voice and artful lyrics. Thank you for years of enjoyment. Can you recommend 2nd CD we could try? And, did he ever come back from Austrailia? We love you! Mike

Comments: (ran out of room....want to finish my thoughts).. I have listened to your CD's many times over. The unique experience of hearing you perform live is something I will treasure as long as I live. Each time has been a most satisfying experience. Always I left with more than I expected. Each is like a rollercoaster ride, lots of happy moments, thrilling moments, soul searching moments, cheerful moments, touching moments, reflective moments. I think it is something everyone should put on their "to do" list. I see from your concert schedule you are taking a little break. I think that is wonderful. Hopefully in this "break time" lots of events will occur that will inspire you to return to us with renewed enthusiasm, new insights and more of your wonderful songs. We, your fans, look forward to your return with great anticipation. I thank God for people like you. Not only have you brought me hour upon hour of enjoyment, entertainment and inspiration, but through your music you have actually made me a bett

Comments: This Cajun has been meaning to write this entry for a long time, but just kept putting it off. I am listening to "B'tween the Earth and My Soul" and the tears are just pouring, I thought to myself...myself...this is the time to make an entry..so here goes. Your music is some of the MOST POWERFUL I have ever heard. You have an AWSOME TALENT..not only in the melodies you write, in the arrangements you deliver, in the moving lyrics you create,but your talent comes in that you REALLY CREATE MUSIC. You combine all the elements and deliver yourself to us in your music. Like you are telling us "here I am, this is what I am feeling, I know you can feel this with me, come, let's experience these emotions, these memories, these experiences, let's do it together". I think it is this sharing of yourself with us in your music that makes you so TOTALLY UNIQUE. When I listen to your music it is like you are holding my hand and sharing that moment with me. What a talent!! I have listened to your CD's many times over

Comments: Just listening to My Bonnie, and it takes me back to the times when I grew up. Listening to all the wonderful music from Cape Breton. What a treat it is to sit here on Martha's Vineyard, MA. and hear your beautiful voice. I rememember back in the day when I was growing up in Breton Cove, and went to a New Years Eve party at the "Banana Farrm" and you were there, I was so young and can barely remember, but you were singing and playing your guitar and it just makes me feel so at home to listen to you sing. Hope all is well. AFA, Jovian

The concert was a benefit for the Sierra Club and it was a "coming out" reunion with George Antoniak. As guest artist Jamie Younger said " George you rock !!". It was wonderful to here you and George play together again and the two of you just flow together. Cheers to you ( and roses too ).

Comments: I think that Laura Smith has the most wonderful way about her; her compositions and her wonderful way of relating her true feelings. I would love to see her in concert. Is there any way I can receive her schedule of performances in the Maritime provinces?

Comments: Just heard about your bizarre accident with a runaway horse, and guess that the pain of your injury is 'running neck-and-neck' with your being 'hobbled' for 6 weeks and unable to perform (blame Phil's influence). We know how much you were looking forward to appearing in 'Menopositive' at the Chester Playhouse, but hope you will follow doctors' orders and be well very soon. All the best from the whole family.

Comments: I stayed with my friend Cheryl this weekend. She put on your CD. I shouted to her in the kitchen "That's Laura Smith" (Actually I said your name wrong because I get confused - but she knew anyway). "How do you know her?" she asked So I told her I'd heard you on the radio - Peter Gzowski - a few years ago. I have just come back from two and a half years in Asia and I had just found your CD the previous day and was so happy to find it in a shoe box where I had left it. I only have about 30 CDs. We both love "I'm a beauty", but your voice and words are quite fantastic!! Will you come to Toronto? Live concerts are so great. Blessings to you, Margaret

Comments: Laura, you embarrass me! The only work I know by you is "My Bonnie" from "Fire in the Kitchen." Every time I listen to it, I get misty. And here I am, playing it at work, trying to not let my coworkers see me! No wonder I can't find your music in stores; you only sell it on the web. My wife and I will have to look into this further. We'd like to hear more of your unique voice.

Comments: A day or two ago, I was 'between calls' in my car (I'm a sales rep), listening to CBC radio. It was a rather ordinary day, which is why I was caught off-guard by a particular song I heard, sung in an earthy, honest voice. I had never heard anything like it before, and it spoke to my long-standing insecurities and my struggle to accept myself. Driving down suburban tracks in my hometown, I staved off tears, and imagined how my three sisters, my mom, and my aunt would react if I played this song for them. I worried; I had already forgotten the name of the song and its songstress. However, Avril (Benoit -- I think it was her) re-announced both at the end of the tune. When I reached my next destination, I fished for my pen and wrote Laura Smith, 'm a Beauty" in choppy letters on my brown, crumpled Harvey's bag. I just picked up the CD today, and it's wonderful! Thank you Laura!

Comments: We really enjoyed your 27 February 2022 concert at the National Library. Being regulars at the Ottawa Folk Festival, it was there where we first heard you. We were sorry you were suffering with the sniffles last evening; but, like the real pro that you are, you did it and did it well .... your great voice was awesome as usual. And, thanks for including the Peter Gzowski material in the BIO here on your web site. That connected your on-stage comments about Peter for us. Best ........ Joan and Bob

Comments: Laura, I am so taken with your song "My Bonnie", your voice is haunting! My husband and I promote and produce concerts here in Massachusetts, and we would love to have you come down and perform. If this interests you let us know. We have had Gordie Sampson down, and many other Maritime performers. Thank you so much for that song.

Comments: I am so excited to have found this web site, and now I can go on to purchase and enjoy your cd's!! The only song I have of yours is "My Bonnie" from the Fire in The Kitchen CD, and everytime I hear it tears come to my eyes ! It is one of my 'desert island picks', you know, if you had to choose only a handful of songs you could hear while stranded on a desert island?! It is poetry in motion, thanks and I look forward to hearing more of your incredible voice! Lynn

You commented on my bone carved necklace, and I told you she is the keeper of the gate, and I purchased it at my friends store on Inglis St. in Truro, Sea Shell Designs, she(Shelley Austin) was behind me in line that nite. I was so happy to meet you. I love your energy. Thank you for the most beautiful music in the world. Blessings, Laurie

Comments: I would love to go to another Concert of yours and wonder if you are planning on coming to Windsor or London anytime soon? We went to your concert here in Windsor a couple of years ago and loved it, it just wasn't long enough! Just read your biography and didn't realise that you used to work at Smale's Place in London! We used to go there occasionally when living in London back in the 70's. I love your music and we don't hear enough of it on the radio these days! Thanks for the music, and good luck in the future.
