Letitia VanSant

Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival, Songwriter, Letitia VanSant, SMSWF, Gatlinburg, TN Letitia VanSant’s distinctly intimate vocals and poignant lyrics landed both of her releases among the top local folk albums of the Baltimore area. Accompanying herself on claw hammer banjo, guitar, and ukulele, her sound ranges at times from traditional Appalachian ballads to roots rock to the confessional diaries of a singer-songwriter. With intricate melodies that deliver simple truths, VanSant turns every show into a sincere conversation with the audience. Her songs offer thought-provoking perspectives on the human spirit and how we cope with the difficulties of getting by, particularly in an economy that is hard on working families.
