Singer/Songwriter Chris Smither at Next Stage


Date & Time: 
Sep 30 2017 - 7:30pm

Next Stage Arts Project is pleased
to present Chris Smither, on Saturday, September 30, at 7:30
pm
.

Chris
Smither
 is one of the most talented and creative
guitarists and singer/songwriters in the American
folk music scene today. According to the Associated Press, Smither is “an
American original, a product of the musical melting pot, and one of the absolute
best singer-songwriters in the world.” Goody Goodrich will be accompanying
Chris on guitar and other stringed instruments.

From his early days as the New Orleans transplant in the Boston
folk scene, through his wilderness years, to his reemergence in the 1990s as
one of America’s most distinctive acoustic performers, Chris Smither continues
to hone his distinctive sound. Smither continues to draw deeply from the blues,
American folk music, modern poets and philosophers with the 14th record of his
lengthy career “Hundred Dollar Valentine” (Signature Sounds).

“Bathed
in the flickering glow of passing headlights and neon bar signs, Smither’s
roots are as blue as they come. There is plenty of misty Louisiana and
Lightnin’ Hopkins in Smither’s weathered singing and unhurried picking. So
fine.” – Rolling Stone

“The
masterful combination of pure folk songwriting and intricate guitar blues are
tangible signs of the singer-songwriter’s vigorous genius. A megawatt solo
performer.” – Wired

Tickets are $22 in
advance/$24 at the door, available online at: www.nextstagearts.org, and
at the Putney Coop and Turn It Up in Brattleboro.
