An Evening with Chris Smither

April 20 , 7:30 pm 9:30 pm

On Saturday, April 20th at 7:30 pm, the legendary Chris Smither will perform at the Unitarian Universalist of Brunswick for their Concerts for a Cause series. All proceeds from the concert will be donated to  Mid Coast New Mainers Group and Oasis Free Clinics. Chris Smither is a folk/blues singer, guitarist and songwriter who has been performing for almost 60 years. Reviewers and fans from around the world, including Rolling Stone and The New York Times, agree that 80-year old Smither continues to be a profound songwriter, a blistering guitarist, and intense performer as he draws deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets and humanist philosophers Smither’s steady nationwide touring and regular releases of consistently acclaimed albums (27 of them) cemented his reputation as one of the finest acoustic musicians in the country. He has received many music awards over the years and written music for many films such as “The Horse Whisperer.” Scores of notable artists have recorded Smithers’ songs, including his good friend Bonnie Raitt who recorded his songs, “Love You Like A Man” and “I Feel the Same.”  She has praised Smither’s songwriting and guitar work calling him “my Eric Clapton.”
“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
