“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
Bio | Chris Smither
Songwriter. Guitarist. Bluesman. Interpreter. Touring musician. For over 50 years. Chris Smither is an American original. It’s his effortless, rippling guitar (“one–‐third John Hurt, one–‐third Lightnin’ Hopkins and one–‐third me”) that is distinctively Smither and his particular genius to reimagine the acoustic blues as a vehicle for rich, philosophically complex lyrics. His songs offer a commentary on the human condition that only Chris Smither can put pen to. These songs pull from deep in the soul that make for a kind of reflection, a timeless introspection.

In duet with his wife Jan Fabricius on mandolin and vocals, you can expect rootsy acoustic instrumentation and sweet harmony singing, interspersed with O’Brien’s self deprecating humor.
