Michael Smith
Click artist/group name, above, to link to websites

One of the most captivating songwriters in the folk arena, celebrated musician Michael Peter Smith has toured the United States and Canada for nearly five decades. He creates new work on a constant basis, and music’s finest performers record his songs.

His song The Dutchman, a signature piece for the late Liam Clancy, and still recorded by dozens of  others, is considered a classic.  Wherever he is – touring concert venues,  clubs, theaters, folk festivals, at house  concerts, or  teaching songwriting  workshops , in powerful songs, award-  winning musical scores, and unforgettable  recordings –  musical mastery is in  whatever Michael does.

Smith was catapulted into international acclaim when he was commissioned to compose music for Steppenwolf Theater Company’s production of The Grapes of Wrath, which won the 1990 Tony Awards for Best Play and Best Director. In recent years, he set the poetry of Opal Whitely’s diary to music for Anne Hills and has collaborated with Puppeteer Blair Thomas for a musical version of The Snow Queen and The Selfish Giant.

Sing Out! Magazine calls him “one of the few undisputed geniuses among singer-songwriters today."
