      Over a distinguished 40 year career, Smither has successfully created a highly individual style drawn from the American folk and blues tradition with a sophisticated finger-picking technique and characteristic gravely voice. Smither is truly an everyman poet, a master of modern acoustic guitar playing the finest country blues tinged with southern folk. An engaging and witty solo performer, he is currently on tour with his latest release, his 12th studio album, Hundred Dollar Valentine (2012), featuring all original songs, a first in Smither’s recordings. Raised in New Orleans, he was part of the rich folk-blues scene in Boston in the late 60s, and is a longstanding collaborator with Bonnie Raitt.
