Guitarist and songwriter John Smith is a product of the British folk scene who is lifting his heritage to international standards. From Devon, John Smith has earned a reputation through the years as a first-class songwriter, guitarist and singer. His sublime guitar playing, his assured rhythmic sense and masterful fingerstyle, slide, and open-tuned guitar has brought demand as a studio musician, working with David Gray, Joe Henry and Joan Baez, among others. He has appeared with Jackson Browne, Martin Carthy and Rodney Crowell. The listen of established musicians who have discovered John Smith is impressive. Since 2006 he has released five of his own albums, the latest being Hummingbird from 2018. The British folk guitar legend, the late John Renbourn, called John Smith “the future of folk music.” The Sunday Times described John Smith as “the guitarist’s guitarist.”
