Earlier this spring, American acoustic folk-blues treasure Chris Smither stopped by the AG studios to play a couple of songs off Call Me Lucky, his first release of all-new studio material since 2012’s Hundred Dollar Valentine.

Experiencing Smither’s dazzling fingerpicking and songwriting prowess first-hand makes it easy to see why he’s been a mainstay on the folk club/coffeehouse/festival circuit since the 1960s—and why heavyweights such as Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Mary Gauthier, and Peter Case, to name just a few, have been drawn to his songs.


In this Session, Smither performs three hauntingly beautiful tunes: “The Blame’s On Me,”  “By the Numbers, and “Everything on Top.” Call us lucky! —Kevin Owens
