John Smith – The Fray “A Journey of Personal and Unrelenting Change”

24 September @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

£18.00
Steeped in the lineage of British folk, taking his cue from Richard Thompson and John Martyn, Smith has evolved a transatlantic blend of fingerstyle and slide guitar techniques. John’s intimate takes on love, loss and the journey we make, combined with his innovative guitar work, have won him a loyal following.  His honey-on-gravel voice and mesmerizing fingerstyle guitar are undeniable. Sometimes using a slide, sometimes with guitar on his lap, sometimes detuning mid-song, Smith’s obsession with the instrument has made a master of him. Whether by way of album or concert, he leads the listener, enthralled in his presence, on a viscerally emotional journey.

“There’s something wonderfully unforced about both his playing and his vocals…in the weight of experience that he brings to his songs…it’s rare these days to find an audience so wrapped up in a performance” Simon O’Hagan, The Independent,
