About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: August 25, 2012
  • Artist / Band: Richard Smith

Renowned English guitarist Richard Smith occupies the sonic space first carved out by Chet Atkins, Merle Travis and Django Reinhardt.

Streaming Audio

Playing western swing, country, gypsy jazz, folk and beyond -- as evidenced by his medley of Beatles songs -- Smith smoothly and effortlessly swings from style to style. It's a skill that he has honed since the age of five, and which he is constantly putting on display in various guises via ensemble performances and during jam sessions. For this Live at KDHX session, however, we catch Smith doing what he does best, performing solo.
