John Smith

Colston Hall Presents at Bristol Folk House

John Smith returns to Bristol to play tracks from his latest album ‘Hummingbird’, a mix of traditional songs and original compositions, which according to Folk Radio is “a work of mature and subtle beauty… this album should be heard by everyone”. John Renbourn, one of the influences that has informed Smith’s own songwriting, has dubbed him “the future of folk music”, praise that Pop Matters agrees is “not hyperbolic”.

“You’re smiling even as tears catch in your throat.”


With support from Georgia Ruth
