Chris Smither at Forty Acres Concerts October 12.
On Friday, October 12, at 8 p.m., Forty Acres is very happy to welcome Chris back to the Five Oaks clubhouse stage.

"Humor faces down desolation in Nobody's Home from Call Me Lucky, an existential ramble from the latest album by the sage, scratchy-voiced, blues-rooted, 73-year-old songwriter Chris Smither: Everybody wants to text me cause they ain't got nothing to say, he notes."  NY Times  March 2, 2018

"Call Me Lucky, is one of the best records of his more than half-century career. It's a measure of Smithers talent that you can't tell whether he was really suffering when he made this album or just playing roles. Whatever, his vocals and melodies are captivating and the lyrics sound fresh and evocative." No Depression.

"One of the best things about seeing Smither in concert is getting to hear his textured voice, which is one of my favorite sounds on Earth. I was also happy to see that a lot of Smither's new songs don't shy away from politics. Smither mentioned Trump, the Catholic Church, and issues with the minimum wage in a few of his tunes. He also spoke at length about the process of writing songs and how difficult that can be." Pulp, May 23, 2018

CALL ME LUCKY, the new record features Smither trademark songs that offer commentary on the human condition with a wink of an eye and pulls from deep in the soul.

To complete the project are a couple of surprise covers that remind us of Chris's deftness as a song interpreter as he makes the songs his own. 

The Five Oaks clubhouse is located between Chapel Hill and Durham, at 5109 Pine Cone Drive, Durham, NC 27707.

Tickets are $30 advanced, available through the Brown Paper Ticket link, $35 at the door.

All of Chriss prior shows with us have sold out, so the "day of" availability is doubtful.
