Songs from Michael Smith

At the October DCCN open mic, Ron sang his current work-in-progress Sister Clarissa.  The song is by a terrific folk singer/songwriter Michael Smith.  The lovely Kate Loitz has recorded his song The Dutchman and Lisa Asher has recorded a number of his songs, too.

His songs generally combine an interesting story with witty lyrics.  Perfect for a trip out of the coffee house and into the cabaret.

His site has info on his songs and recordings.  And he even has a songbook — but be warned, it’s really meant as a rough guide for the folk guitarist, not necessarily something you can put successfully in front of a pianist.  But the drawings are very pretty.
