John Smith (UK) with Dennis Ellsworth – Saturday, June 23
John plays the steel-string acoustic guitar. Sometimes with a slide, sometimes on his lap, sometimes de-tuning the thing mid-song. has played to audiences all over the world, in living rooms, festival tents and sold-out concert halls. He tours relentlessly with a guitar and a suitcase, sometimes with a small band, always looking to communicate through a song and to share something intangible with those willing to listen.
From PEI, Dennis writes around life experience and emotion in a poetic way, full of imagery, and classic melody, sung in a rich, confident voice. His latest album “Things Change”, produced by Joel Plaskett, was released in April 2018. Hearing his songs performed live in this up close & personal setting is sure to be amazing.
