Folksinger, songwriter Sky Smeed Celebrates Kansas
Lawrence, Kan. – Sky Smeed will be celebrating Kansas this January and February, with an exclusive 20 date tour of the state. It’s the second year in a row that the Lawrence based songwriter will be packing his bags and guitar for a month of music, exploration, and trail running in his home state.
“Last year’s Kansas tour was a breath of fresh air for me. I made new friends, visited towns I had never been to, and shared my songs along the way,” says Smeed. “I’ll be returning to some of my favorite places and venues this year, but I’ve also managed to include a handful of new spots to check out. I love Kansas, and I love the fact that I’ve been living here most of my life and still haven’t been to every nook and cranny.”
Sky was born and raised outside of Chanute, Kansas, in an old, one-room schoolhouse his parents bought and turned into a home in the early 1970s. Two years ago he sold the country home he built by hand and moved north to Lawrence and began settling in to an old fixer-upper on the north side of the Kaw River.
Smeed will be releasing his seventh album, Leaving Again, this year on February 9th, but he’ll have it available for early purchase, along with other exclusive merchandise at every Kansas Tour stop.
Listeners often compare Sky’s music to Gram Parsons, Neil Young and John Prine, though his easy-going, off-the cuff banter and transparency link him to contemporaries like Todd Snider and Paul Thorn.
Don’t miss Sky Smeed at The Volland Store in Volland, KS on February 2nd at 7:00 p.m.
