Music

Chris Smither is an exceptional blues and folk artist with more than 15 albums to his credit.  He receives ongoing praise for his dazzling guitar work, his distinctive voice and his profoundly beautiful songwriting.  His rhythmic finger-picking style, strongly influenced by the playing of Mississippi John Hurt and Lightnin’ Hopkins, is layered over the ever-present backbeat of his tapping feet.  Originally from New Orleans and currently based in Boston, Chris Smither recently recorded a two-CD retrospective of his best-loved songs.  Many other artists have recorded his songs as well, including Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Diana Krall and John Mayall.  “Chris 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)
