John SmithVerified account@johnsmithguitar US friends! I’m coming to America next week to open for David Gray in 13 of your finest cities. Full details are at http://www.johnsmithjohnsmith.com x Anyway,I was very excited when John would be the support in Manchester.I've liked his music for a while.Most recent album - Great Lakes is very good indeed and well worth listening to.He played four songs from it during his five song set.He finished with Winter,a superb track from The Fox and The Monk.He is very reminiscent of a young John Martyn both in his voice and his guitar playing style. Well done to DG for using his considerable talents.Excellent!
