Acoustic

Chris Smither

When: Sat., Oct. 15 2016

Chris Smither has his music-legend credentials well in order: Bonnie Raitt helped popularize his songs "Love You Like a Man" and "I Feel the Same." Allen Toussaint, Loudon Wainwright III, and members of Morphine guested on his 2014 Still on the Levee album. And a subsequent tribute album included contributions from Raitt, Patty Larkin, Jorma Kaukonen, and a dozen other accomplished admirers. Smither grew up in New Orleans and, like his contemporary John Hammond, became immersed in the music of first-generation blues heroes like Mississippi John Hurt and Lightnin' Hopkins. Now, at 71, he's once again touring the country with his stunning guitar work, deep voice, and even deeper songs. Don't miss out at the Gold Room. 7:30 p.m., 18 S. Nevada Ave., $28, goldroomlive.com. — Bill Forman
