Jason Smith was a local musician and friend to many. When he passed last winter, many of his friends helped create a scholarship in his honor. 

Nate Smith, brother of Jason, joined us on Tuesday to talk about the Jason Smith Arts and Music Festival and Fun Run, an event happening on September 29 at Biddle Mission Park in Carlisle. 

The festival and run benefits the Jason Smith Award for Music and Kindness, which is awarded to a graduating high school senior. 

The Charles Bruce Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping writers, artists and musicians, is a proud sponsor of the award.
