Chris Smither

September 23, 2022 @ 8:00 pm

“Smither is an American original – a product of the musical melting pot and one of the absolute best singer-songwriters in the world.” Associated Press

Chris Smither’s enduring, singular guitar sound evolved from his New Orleans musical experiences – a beat-driven finger-picking, strongly influenced by the playing of Mississippi John Hurt and Lightnin’ Hopkins, layered over the ever-present backbeat of his rhythmic, tapping feet (always mic’d in performance).

Over the years, he’s released several acclaimed albums and developed lifelong friendships with musicians like Bonnie Raitt, who went on to record his songs, “Love You Like A Man” and “I Feel the Same”.

According to Acoustic Guitar: Smither sings about “the big things – life, love, loss – in a penetrating and poetic yet unpretentious way.”
