Whenever you read or hear about the music of Johnsmith, certain watchwords always come up, regardless of the source. Words like uplifting, or integrity, heart, or soul. His songs and voice go straight to the heart, because that's where they come from. Over two decades of performing festivals, concert halls, coffeehouses, colleges, and house concerts, along with a half dozen acclaimed CDs, Johnsmith has built a solid fan base in the US and abroad. After a few inspiring solo tours to Ireland, John now leads tours to the Emerald Isle a few times a year bringing small groups of fans and friends touring castles and fishing villages by day, and sharing music with the locals in pubs by night. He's a past winner of the New Folk competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival, and has taught songwriting there, as well as the Swannanoa Gathering, the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival. He was recently featured on the elite "New Dimensions" program on NPR.
