Chris Smither with Special Guest Peter Mulvey



BOMBYX Center for Arts & Equity (130 Pine Street, Florence MA)

One day in the late 1960’s a young songwriter was encouraged to go to Cambridge, Massachusetts and play in the music clubs there. That was Chris Smither. Celebrating his newest record and over fifty years of touring, Smither continues as a leading songwriter drawing deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets, and philosophers, and is still one of America’s most distinctive acoustic performers. One evening, back in the early 1990’s, a young songwriter opened for Chris. That was Peter Mulvey – as he self-describes, a “road-dog, raconteur and almost-poet.” Since that evening, a deep friendship and close musical comradery has flourished. Hear them both in concert.
