From Nashville! Fingerstyle Guitar Master lights up the Nighttown stage! Special Guest opening act North Coast Guitarist Pete Cavano.

Richard Smith started playing the guitar at age 5 and has never looked back. Focusing early on with the fingerstyle guitar of Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed, he began transcribing classical music, Jazz, the gypsy style of Django Reinhardt, bluegrass, ragtime and the blues to Sousa marches. Now a seasoned performer in his forties with thousands of performances worldwide to his credit, Richard has become renowned worldwide for his mastery of instrument and for his knock-out entertaining shows.

Pete Cavano

It has been an honor and privilege to perform with artists as diverse as the late Robert Lockwood Jr., and local legends Anne E. Dechant, Wallace Coleman, Mr. Stress, and Colin Dussault, to name just a few.

In addition to my local work, I have been an annual performer at the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society Convention held in Nashville. This is a showcase of the best solo guitarists from around the world and I am humbled to be in their ranks.

Though I will continue to “sit in” with notable local bands, for the last 20 years I have concentrated on solo guitar. Covering everything from Bach to the Beatles, I have developed a broad repertoire which I can adapt to any audience.
