Chris Smither

Last Thursday night I saw Chris Smither in concert at the Mucky Duck. I caught his second show of the evening.

Chris Smither is a veteran singer-songwriter who has had a long and interesting career.

This was the first time I had heard him perform and I was not very familiar with his music going into the show.

I was very impressed with his performance. He is an accomplished guitar player and his songs are steeped in a mixture of blues and folk and often feature a wicked sense of humor.

He played a number of songs from throughout his career including: "Hold On", "Love you Like a Man", "Lola", "Origin of Species", "Confirmation", "Winsome Smile", "Link of Chain", "Crocodile Man", "Train Home", "Leave the Light On" and a great version of Bob Dylan's "Desolation Row".

You can sample music from Chris Smither's discography here and here.
