Sahara Smith-Live August 1, 2010
Located 28 miles southwest of Austin, Wimberley, TX, boasts natural springs and grave sites of early pioneers. It’s also been the hometown to -a stunning, young singer-songwriter who started performing at age 12, and first garnered national attention at age 15 when she placed second in a contest for young songwriters on A Prairie Home Companion. Now 21, Sahara is poised for a breakout with Myth of the Heart, the just-completed album of original songs shepherded by T Bone Burnett and producer Emile Kelman, and it just came out on Tuesday. Sahara performed during Music with Jay Trachtenberg in Studio 1A.
