Northwind Arts Center welcomes Wisconsin-based singer-songwriter Johnsmith, Friday, October 18 at 7:00pm. Series sponsors are Peninsula Hearing and Strait Floors. Media sponsor for this series is KPTZ-FM radio.
Johnsmith(that's how he spells it!) is one of those artists so often under-recognized – he possesses a genius that cannot be denied, ignored, or overlooked. For the past thirty-plus years, Johnsmith has been sharing his music all across America and abroad. He has become a favorite at festivals, clubs, and house concerts alike. In addition to being a Kerrville New Folk Winner, Johnsmith has released eight solo CDs to rave reviews, leads musical tours to Ireland, teaches songwriting, and has served as a staff songwriter in Nashville.
With his faded jeans, his twinkly blue eyes, and his infectious smile, John immediately connects with audiences. You get the sense of a man who loves his life, his family and friends, and who loves nothing more than sharing that love in song and stories all across this land.
"Johnsmith extends his growing, glowing reputation...beautiful, high tenor voice, excellent guitar playing, and spirited, uplifting songs. His music is open-hearted, unpretentious, grounded in the personal, yet always accessible and universal. ~Sing Out! Magazine
"John's plays and sings so well you almost don't notice how good his songs are. It's all there, and he's this nice regular guy you want to hang out with. Watch out, his music will sneak up on you."
Tickets are $20 each at Northwind Arts Center, jsmithnorthwind.brownpapertickets.com or at the door.
