Stevington Guitar Concerts Present
John Smith in Concert
Friday & Saturday 9/10th February 2018
Stevington Village Hall, Stevington
We are delighted to announce the line up for the next Stevington Guitar Concert. John Smith plus support.
John Smith has played to audiences all over the world in festival tents, living rooms and sold-out concert halls. He tours relentlessly with his guitars, looking to communicate through a song and to share something intangible with those willing to listen. His uniquely intimate take on love, loss or even a mythic murder ballad, combined with his innovative guitar work, have won him a loyal following. John has opened shows for Iron and Wine, John Martyn, Tinariwen and Gil Scott-Heron, and has performed alongside the likes of Jackson Browne, Jerry Douglas, Richard Hawley, Jarvis Cocker and Rodney Crowell.
In his occasional role as session musician he has played electric guitar for David Gray, Lisa Hannigan, LeAnn Rimes and Lianne La Havas. It’s all for the love of the guitar. John plays a rumbling acoustic fingerstyle but sometimes uses a slide or plays the guitar on his lap. His playing and honey-on-gravel vocals have brought crowds the world over to pin-drop silence and rapturous applause.
John has self-released five albums: “The Fox and the Monk” (2006), “Map Or Direction” (2009), “Eavesdropping” (2011) , ”Great Lakes” (2013) and “Headlong” (2017)
“He’s a magician” – Ben Howard
“Spellbinding” – Time Out
