A Note from Michael Smith
This April I’m in St Louis and Grand Rapids, places that sound to me sometimes as if I was on a vaudeville tour, but with much pleasanter hotel rooms. In St. Louis I love the restaurant that’s right next door to the gig, exotic food on a peaceful street. In Grand Rapids I play the Wealthy Theater, two words you don’t usually see together. Both of these places are what you call listening rooms, the descendants of coffeehouses. I couldn’t believe it the first time I played a coffeehouse: people actually listened.  I saw there the beginning of my own listening too, because it had never been that quiet before when I played. It was like: oh Michael you better come up with something. I love working both these rooms, great audiences, and I’m sure glad that it’s what I get to do this April instead of the gigs some politicians are booked for this month. And “Rain” might be my favorite Beatle song. Button up your overcoat. OK bye.
