Experience the blues like you have never felt before with a special performance at Terra Blues featuring the musical stylings of Byther Smith.
"Smitty," as so many of his fans often call him, was born in Monticello, Mississippi in 1933, and by the 1970s quickly became internationally recognized as one of the most profound performers on the blues scene. With his success among blues fans, Smitty's punchy guitar statements provoke an extraodinary level of emotion, taking each guests on a musical journey that they are sure to never forget. Smith has earned his places among the legends whose music he has woven into his own powerful, vital stylings, with a number of performances over the course of his career, and now blues lovers can take advantage of this rare opportunity with an exciting performance at Terra Blues.
To date, Smith is one of the Chicago blues greats and he is still jamming. Nearly 80 years old, Smith celebrated his birthday at his last appearance sharing with fans that he would continue to play and share his songs for as long as he can. Yet, while he hasn't played on the east coast in years, blues fans can catch him performing live for a night of music and magic.
