Acclaimed songwriter to perform at Weaver Library

A JOY ms-guitar-220x199

Celebrated Chicago songwriter Michael P. Smith performs original songs inspired by Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick at the Weaver Library on Monday, April 15, 2019 at 7 pm.


An avid reader, Smith could not resist transforming texts from this seminal novel in to ballads, shanties, story-songs and powerful anthems.


Infused with his poignant melodies, rousing vocals, and fine guitar playing, the songs of Moby Dick capture the tantalizing power of seafaring life.  


Best known for writing the folk classic The Dutchman, Smith has been singing and composing since the 1960s. A beloved master in the folk music scene, Smith continues to perform throughout the country.


As a soloist, Michael has been a program highlight at musical venues and and at folk festivals from Kerrville, Texas to Shawano, WI and Toronto, CA.


Michael’s East Coast tours, as both a solo artist, and in performance with Anne Hills, have brought him to folk venues and concert halls from Princeton, NJ to Cambridge, Mass.


Weaver Library is located at 41 Grove Avenue, East Providence, RI.


This concert is free and open to all.
