Smart Bets: Carrie Elkin and Danny Schmidt

Austin-based songwriters Carrie Elkin and Danny Schmidt’s poetic-yet-relatable lyrics and raw-but-sweet vocals are a match made in country-folk heaven. The Austin Chronicle calls Elkin “an earthy combination of strength and compassion … reminiscent of the winsome beauty created by a young Nanci Griffith,” while Schmidt is lauded as a “timeless troubadour in the tradition of Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Dave Carter” by The Boston Globe. The duo performs at an up-close-and-cozy house concert at Music Mania in Mills River on Sunday, Jan. 26, at 1 p.m. Reservations are required and seating is limited. $15. Photo by John Grubbs
