CALS Arkansas Sounds presents Chris Smither
CHRIS SMITHER. Songwriter. Guitarist. Performer. Bluesman.
Honing a synthesis of folk and blues for 50 years, Smither is truly an American original. Reviewers and fans from around the world, including Rolling Stone and The New York Times, agree that Chris 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.
Call Me Lucky is the new record from Chris Smither and is his first set of brand new originals in six years. Recorded at the gorgeous Blue Rock Studio in the Texas foothills Call Me Lucky features longtime producer and multi-instrumentalist David Goodrich, drummer Billy Conway (Morphine), Matt Lorenz (aka The Suitcase Junket), Mike Meadows, and engineer Keith Gary. The new record features Smither trademark songs that offer commentary on the human condition with a wink of an eye and pulls from deep in the soul. To complete the project are a couple of surprise covers that remind us of Chris’ deftness as a song interpreter as he makes the songs his own. Check it out Call Me Lucky. Check out Chris Smither.

Tickets are $20 for general admission seating. The doors open at 7:00 pm and the concert starts at 8:00 pm.
