John-smith_show_events_pageOne of our favourite artists in recent years, John Smith, returns to Open House Festival for a solo gig this September in The Black Box, Belfast. He first visit to Open House was back in 2013 for the inaugural Bangor Festival. We loved him so much, we brought him on tour in 2015 around Northern Ireland.

John plays a rumbling fingerstyle and sometimes uses a slide, sometimes plays the guitar on his lap, sometimes he detunes mid-song. His guitar work and honey-on-gravel vocals have brought crowds to pin-drop silence and rapturous applause. Critics have compared his powerful singing voice to the likes of John Martyn and Ray Lamontagne.
