Chris Smither In Concert
May 19, 2012
Chris Smither celebrates the release of his newest CD, with special guests The Parkington Sisters. Honing a synthesis of folk and blues for more than 40 years and having released thirteen records, Chris Smither is truly an American original. A profound songwriter, Chris continues to draw deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets and humanist philosophers. A blistering guitarist, Chris melds the styles of his two major influences, Lightnin’ Hopkins and Mississippi John Hurt, into his own signature guitar sound. Reviewers praise his dazzling guitar work, gravelly voice and songwriting. New York Times: With a weary, well-traveled 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. Come celebrate Chris’ new record as he returns to the Regent Theatre.
