BlueShore Financial Centre for the Performing Arts at CU Presents Chris Smither

Event Details

Capilano University

“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

Chris Smither’s unique flavour of New Orleans folk-infused blues and foot tapping style straddles genres and leaves a lasting impression, just like his gravely and soulful voice. A favourite in our series, his songs have been made famous by the likes of B.B. King, Bonnie Rait and Diana Krall though he prefers to live his life slightly below the radar of stardom. Since his uncle taught him as a child that, “if you knew four chords, you could pretty much rule the world,” Smither has indeed ruled the songwriting world for over forty years while always keeping his humble and self-deprecating on stage manner.

Tickets are $25 (advance) and $28 (at door).
