American Standard Time Presents: A Tribute to Harry Smith
American Standard Time and Columbia City Theater are proud to present a night of history and song, celebrating hometown hero and historian Harry Smith and his celebrated Anthology of American Folk Music. While some of Seattleâs most notable musicians will be a part of the evening, the showâs true headliner is Harry Smith and the Anthology of American Folk Music itself, as it is indisputably the most influential mix-tape ever made.
Inspired by Harry Smithâs pivotal release and Greg Vandyâs annual tribute show to the album, weâve put together a night of celebration featuring interpretations from the Anthology by some of Seattleâs finest musicians.

Harry Smith & The Anthology of American Folk Music:
The Anthology of American Folk Music was the touchstone of the folk revival movement of the 1960s, inspiring artists like Bob Dylan and Joan Baez. Released in 1952, the six album, three volume anthology chronicled a vanishing America featuring songs recorded from 1927 to 1932 which would have otherwise been lost forever were it not for Smithâs collection. We seek to bring the songs alive once again with performances from all three volumes of The Anthology: Ballads, Social Music and Songs.
