Thanks, Maeve. Chris Smither is one of those performers whose tour dates I check from time to time, and who I I'll travel a long way (by British standards) to go and see. But I hadn't seen these dates - and there's one virtually on my doorstep. Tickets now booked, as a result of your post!

And I can only echo the previous entreaties to go and see him. He's such a warm, engaging and talented singer, guitarist and songwiter.

Bainbo- That's great you can get to see Chris! I haven't been able to afford one of his for a very long time, but I love to help others hear his music.

He's terrific, I've been following him stateside since the 70's; he's a consumate guitarist, a superlative songwriter and 'songcatcher ' - to me, he's one of the most enjoyable, and under rated singer/songwriters ever. He often brings his own 'floor' - a round wooden pallet that he uses to tap time out on in a engaging percussion. Glad he's getting out and about across the pond.

Don't know if they'd let him bring his floor on the plane tho. ;D

Hi Maeve

Do you happen to know who booked/organized his UK tour? I'm trying to help out a different US bluesman do a similar tour this summer...

Thanks

Hi, Matt. Have a look at Chris's Contact page http://smither.com/contact/. You could contact Carol Young. She'd know which of the European booking agents was responsible for this tour.

Good luck.

Perhaps a video might help persuade those who've never seen him?

And Chris is a Local 1000 member who is collecting a pension!

Imagine that: a US folk musician collecting a pension for life.
