Barbara McBride-Smith – Storytelling LIVE!
Barbara McBride-Smith grew up in Texas, was educated in Massachusetts, raised her family in Oklahoma, and finally settled down in Tennessee. McBride-Smith’s colorful voice along with its native Texas twang, (according to the Bar Harbor Times), might remind you of “a fire and brimstone preacher, carnival barker, used car salesman, or Butterfly McQueen.” McBride-Smith has entertained audiences across the U.S. and is the recipient of the John Henry Faulk and NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence awards.
“McBride-Smith, with all her humor, doesn’t forget the poignant sorrows of women’s and men’s lives. Her stories will make you laugh … break your heart, and give you a new take on the struggles of ‘we mortals’ to live our lives on this earth.” – New Directions for Women
