About Chris Smither and special guest The Suitcase Junket

Drawing deeply from folk and blues, modern poets and philosophers, Chris Smithers’ road-worn voice, artful lyrics and electrifying guitar have carved him out as a total one-off. Tonight he’ll be performing songs from his newest release Call Me Lucky, as well as digging deep into his back catalogue of favourites.

“Call Me Lucky careens confidently from lowdown acoustic blues to spry folk rock, riffing and jangling with a sense of urgency and purpose.” Uncut UK

Joining Chris will be young American songwriter The Suitcase Junket (Matt Lorenz) whose music is rooted in the salvaged sounds of mountain ballads, blues manifestos, American juke joints and back porches.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Chris Smither and special guest The Suitcase Junket are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
