As the lead writers and voices of the popular bluegrass band the Dappled Grays, Leah Calvert and Michael Smith share a long musical history.  They used the downtime of the pandemic to rite an entirely new catalog of music and launched their new project, Smith & Calvert. Michael has played with Sugarland, John McEuen (of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) and the legendary bluegrass fiddler Bobby Hicks. For ten years, he shared the stage with Lauren Morrow as a member of the Whiskey Gentry.  Leah is a first-call Atlanta fiddler/violinist and singer.  Apart from releasing her own music, she currently plays and records with John Driscoll Hopkins (of the Zac Brown Band) and has recorded extensively with Kristian Bush (of Sugarland).




Formed in September 2020, Crawlspace has burrowed its way into the hearts of the Atlanta/Decatur music scene. Composed of Phyl Hilton, Charles Absher, and John Miller, the trio tours coffeehouses, retirement homes, parks, and farmers’ markets across the greater metropolitan area. They are regulars at the Atlanta Botanical Garden and AvonWoodstock. Crawlspace performs Crosby/Stills/Nash, Dylan, Eagles, Gary Davis, and other traditional and folk music, plus quite a few originals. 

The name Crawlspace comes from extended time spent beneath houses. Phyl Hilton is a retired HVAC contractor, and Charles Absher and John Miller are retired civil engineers. Upon first glance, you could think their years of work and experience would have fostered a deep seriousness for their craft. Closer inspection reveals they are having a ball.
