TomSmithAcousticGuitarandBanjo's Profile

About me:Tom Smith is well known for his unique and extraordinary talent in playing his original compositions on guitar and banjo.

The Nashville Tennessean calls him an "Acoustic Guitar Virtuoso" while the Nashville City Paper says, "One of the nation's premier guitarists... 'Juliet's Window'... a masterpiece."

And in Nashville, the home of some of the best players in the world, that's saying something.

It's been said that Smith could be referred to as a mixture of John Fahey, Kaki King, Michael Hedges, Ralph Towner and Leo Kottke but that would be too limiting.

Tom has shared the stage with Tuck & Patti, John Hammond, Jr., John Fahey, Michael Hedges, Robben Ford, Jesse Winchester, Todd Phillips, Livingston Taylor, Melanie, David Pomeroy, Reckless Johnny Wales, Odetta, and Dave Van Ronk.

Akustik Gitarre - this review was in the same issue that released Akustik Gitarre's Compilation CD which placed Tom in such great company as John Lennon, Eric Clapton, T-Bone Burnett and Ralph McTell... well as many other reviews from around the country.
