Sunday music: Chris Smither

It’s been more than I year since I posted about my favorite Zen bluesman, Chris Smither (including garden appropriate content like Origin of Species and that street produce vendor song). Today, it’s just some old Philly Folk Festival performances.

  1. Never crossed my mind or other parts that “Love You Like a Man” was “Zen.”

  2. I love Mr. Chris Smithers. He is just a very fine musician.
    Now that he is a “bit older”, he kinda reminds me of Al Gore. :)

    Chris Smithers makes for some great gardening music.

  3. That is a LINK to my Family History website. This one is to my Memorial page for my dog, Mr. Magoo who reminds me of your dog, Jade, only Magoo was much lower to the ground. He was a Lab-Bassett Hound mix.

    Please feel free to browse around the rest of my website. It’s sadly in need of being updated, but , oh, well. Still a lot of info there.
    There are links to my Swedish families and who knows – we might even be related!

    My AUTHOR page links you to some of my garden pics. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hindorff/author.htm
