Please note that this event has been rescheduled to Friday 28 April 2023. The event was due to take place on Wednesday 15 June 2022.Plus special guest Zak Trojano

Honing his synthesis of folk and blues for over 50 years, Chris Smither returns to the UK to perform music from his vast song catalogue.

Truly an American original, a profound songwriter, and a captivating performer, Smither mesmerizes listeners with his guitar playing – melding the styles of his two major influences, Lightnin' Hopkins and Mississippi John Hurt, into his own signature guitar sound. His music draws deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets and humanist philosophers and continues to earn accolades.

Critics universally agree on Smither’s important contribution to contemporary music from five-star reviews in MOJO magazine to a top 10 spot on Rolling Stone Senior Editor David Fricke’s ‘Best of New Orleans Jazz & Heritage festival performances’ in 2014.

Chris will be supported by his friend, the excellent songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Zak Trojano.

‘With a weary, well-travelled voice and a serenely intricate finger-picking style, Mr. Smither turns the blues into songs that accept hard-won lessons and try to make peace with fate.’
New York Times
