In her solo show 'The Voice Is A Traveler,' singer/composer Moira Smiley weaves her banjo, accordion, and piano around her magnificent voice.

Singing and storytelling through her own timeless, original songs and traditional folk songs, we travel through songs of home (belonging) and longing.

Themes of real and metaphorical border-crossings are seen through Anglo-Celtic ballads, American spirituals, European folk laments and sharp, poignant original songs. Expect to be welcomed to sing or hum a few times with Moira - she somehow inspires any room - anywhere - to sing. She will be joined at Joe's Pub by special guests Joe Phillips (bass) & Phillip Mayer (drums).

"Moira Smiley is a brilliant musician - an innovative composer and arranger, and a heartbreakingly beautiful singer. Her music transcends (and expands) boundaries." -Billy Childs, Grammy-winning composer/pianist
