Masters of Acoustic Song

Bruce Cockburn & Chris Smither. Get both concerts at the Alaska PAC at a one great rate!

March 2nd and March 3rd

Irreverent master craftsman services strings of the stars

”Wise words pour forth from Chris Smither - observations and aphorisms, similes and internal rhymes, run-on sentences and concise quips, all in a conversational flow. The careful construction of Smither’s lyrics is a thing of beauty and the bedrock of his bluesy folk music. Smither is an excellent acoustic guitarist and first-rate foot-stomper.‘ - ASSOCIATED PRESS

”[Smither] taps his foot to keep the rhythm, much like the late blues legend John Lee Hooker. His finger-picked guitar lines are sleek, unhurried and insistent. And then there’s the voice — equal parts gravel and molasses, Smither's singing sounds like a distillation of the folk and blues heroes he grew up listening to in New Orleans.‘ - NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO

“Bathed in the flickering glow of passing headlights and neon bar signs, Smither’s roots are as blue as they come. There is plenty of misty Louisiana and Lightnin’ Hopkins in Smither’s weathered singing and unhurried picking. So fine.” - ROLLING STONE


Chris Smither is presented by Whistling Swan Productions.

Runs approximately 2 hours including intermission.

BABIES — Discouraged. Ticket required for all ages.
CHILDREN — Recommended for ages 9 and older.
Disruptive patrons of any age will be expected to exit the show.

Whistling Swan Productions strives to provide a listening environment where patrons and artists can focus on the music without distraction. Because of the quiet acoustic nature of most of our shows, all children in attendance should be able to sit without supervision in a way that does not distract or disturb other listeners for sets that normally last at least an hour, and may stretch to two full hours. In our four decades of producing shows, attending shows with our own children, and supervising students as educators, we have found that children under the age of nine (9) seldom have the interest and focus to sit through acoustic shows of this length without causing stress on parents, musicians, and other listeners. Therefore, while there are rare exceptions, we strongly advise parents to not bring children under the age of nine to Whistling Swan shows unless they are specifically labeled as for children or families.
