Declaration of The Báb

Declaration of The Báb

This program was designed with the remote believers in mind.  This program can be enjoyed on it's own or used as a companion piece for your community celebration.  

We wanted something that was readily available when the time came to commemorate the Declaration of the Báb, so that everyone has the opportunity to feel connected during this time.

With this in mind, the program is available on demand and is customary to be commemorated at 1-2 hours past sunset in your area on Friday, May 22. but feel free to watch anytime that is convenient to you.

Allow us to host you for this most exciting of Holy Days.  We wish we could serve you ourselves, but since we can't, make a tea and join us in our home and around the world for the celebration of the Declaration of the Báb.

Geoff, Michaela & Rosanna Lea Smith

Geoff, Michaela & Rosanna Lea Smith

Geoff and Michaela Smith have been performing music together since they met at university, where Geoff tried to impress Michaela with his fretboard chops only to discover that Michaela was a more advanced guitarist and a burgeoning songwriter. Romance blossomed despite some initial musical competitiveness and they decided to marry and settle near St. Ives Bay in Cornwall, Geoff’s home county.  

When children arrived, Geoff and Michaela still managed to write and record original music and keep performing, often taking the family along to gigs, putting cotton wool into sensitive ears and letting them sleep backstage. The household always resounded with soulful songs and little hands were encouraged to find chords and melodies on guitar and piano and bash out rhythms on old biscuit tins and table tops. During a memorable year living in British Columbia the family took an epic trip up the Alaska Highway, destined for Whitehorse in the Yukon. Travelling for days in their beat-up pickup truck, the family overcame the tedium of the long journey by singing. They learned to find the sweetest harmonies and confidently blend their unique voices.

Geoff and Michaela have released many albums of original music and their children Rosanna, Jordan, Bonnie and Mica have become confident creative performers in their own right.

Recently Rosanna, Mica and her husband Tom Holland (an outstanding guitarist and veteran of the Cornish scene with his band Cross) joined Geoff and Michaela to form the Holland Smith Family Band!

Under lockdown restrictions however, the band has been reduced to the trio of Geoff, Michaela and Rosanna who have been live-streaming songs regularly on Facebook to try to bring a little joy to others during this time.
