Brown Bag Program - Sky Smeed

  • Brown Bag Program - Sky Smeed
Coutts Museum of Art
Date: Tuesday October 21, 2014
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Category: Concert / Live Music

Location: Coutts Museum of Art, 110 N. Main St., El Dorado
Price: Free Admission
Sky Smeed was born and raised outside of Chanute, KS in an old, one-room schoolhouse his parents bought and turned into a home ini the early 70's.

The first music he ever heard came from Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Van Morrison and Merle Haggard. Hearing this roots style of music playing on an old record player has stayed with Sky and is evident when he takes the stage to share his country tinged tunes of working hard, dogs, love, money, beer drinking and good times.

He has self-released three full length albums, and his most recent, "Mill River" was recorded with his band at Signature Sounds in Pomfret, CT. It is a rollicking bunch of songs, with Smeed stretching emotionally, compositionally and hitting every mark full stride.

His music has been compared to Gram Parsons, and early Neil Young. Sky books his own shows and has played from Massachusetts to California, working his way through bars and listening rooms across America.

This program is sponsored by Jeremy Sundgren of Joe Sundgren Auction & Realty, El Droado, KS.

Tuesdays, Sep. 30—Nov. 4, 2014
5:30pm to 9:30pm $297
