About the Event
23/09/2017 • Doors open 7:45pm • Tudor Stables, Kenilworth Castle • SOLD OUT
John Smith has played to audiences all over the world in festival tents, living rooms and sold-out concert halls. He tours relentlessly with his guitars, looking to communicate through a song and to share something intangible with those willing to listen. His uniquely intimate take on love, loss or even a mythic murder ballad, combined with his innovative guitar work, have won him a loyal following.
John has opened shows for Iron and Wine, John Martyn, Tinariwen and Gil Scott-Heron, and has performed alongside the likes of Jackson Browne, Jerry Douglas, Richard Hawley, Jarvis Cocker and Rodney Crowell. In his occasional role as session musician he has played electric guitar for David Gray, Lisa Hannigan, LeAnn Rimes and Lianne La Havas.
We are thrilled to be welcoming John to our festival, for a one-off, intimate show in the beautiful Tudor Stables at Kenilworth Castle. This promises to be a very special event indeed.
