Smith & Ryder

Smith & Ryder is an Americana / Country / Roots duo from Central Massachusetts. Miriam and Sean are both singer / songwriters that like to perform original music and sing harmonies.

Miriam Smith is a lifelong, classically trained violinist who also dabbles in mandolin and guitar. From a very musical family, she grew up singing close harmony with her two sisters. Miriam also enjoys songwriting and performing with several small acoustic and classical ensembles. In her spare time, Miriam enjoys training and competing in the sport of Olympic weightlifting.

Sean Ryder is a man of many hats. He is old enough to know better, but foolish enough not to care. He plays acoustic and electric guitar, tenor guitar, and other things with strings. He builds and repairs instruments as a hobby. He also likes to sing and write songs and loves performing in songwriter events.
