John Smith - Colston Hall presents, Sunday 27 October 2019

Essex-born John Smith has built a reputation as one of the UK’s finest guitarists and songwriters.  Raised by the Devon seaside and making his bones in the bars and clubs of Liverpool, John has released five albums with over 10 million Spotify streams.  He has played to audiences all over the world in living rooms, festival tents and sold-out concert halls.  He is a genuine folksinger, an inquisitive truth-seeker, devoted song interpreter, and enchanting writer.

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.
