Like John Hammond and others whose careers began in the 60s blues revival, guitarist, singer, and songwriter Chris Smither can take pride in the fact that he's been there since the beginning.

Described as a blend of Lightning Hopkins, Mississippi John Hurt, and John Prine, Smither taps his foot to keep the rhythm, much like the late blues legend John Lee Hooker.

"(Smither) is among the finest acoustic guitarists anywhere in American music (Bonnie Raitt calls him my Eric Clapton), and his songs, while banked in the blues, are as modern as tomorrow’s newspaper." - BOSTON GLOBE
