With her distinctive Texas twang, storyteller Barbara McBride-Smith presents family tales close to her heart. Remarkably expressive, she vocalizes her work in a distinctive comic style. In this tribute to her mother, McBride-Smith demonstrates Mama's unenviable singing style while sharing memorable lessons that can't be obscured by sour notes and botched lyrics.
In her trademark Texas twang, award-winning storyteller Barbara McBride-Smith recounts stories from her family that speak to all of us.

"When telling of her mother's button box, the slapstick humor is shoved aside for a serious, nostalgic look at family life imparted through the buttons cut from various garments. McBride-Smith's Texas-accented voice jumps easily among humor, dialogue, and sadness, adding emphasis where needed." (Voya)
I was raised in Tennessee in 1940-60s. Similar experiences. Stories meaningful. The accent and expressions are exactly like my best friend who attended Baylor U. In Texas. I was captivated. This storyteller brought laughter and tears to my day. I hope to share this rendition with my children and grandchildren.
When I have a little money I buy books and if there is any left over, I buy food.

Oh please no.
Maybe the kids will like it but I won't be joining them while they listen.
