John Smith To Support New Album 'Hummingbird' With Marathon UK And Ireland Tour

Monday, 06 August 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

John Smith will support his new album with an extensive UK and Ireland tour.

With 'Hummingbird' due to arrive on October 5, the Devonshire singer-songwriter is set to kick off the run with a stop in Aberdeen on October 4 prior to his set at Ullapool's Guitar Festival the following day. He will then hit the road again on October 10 to head to Coughlan’s in Cork, where he'll play two nights.

Shows follow in Limerick, Dublin, Bangor, Chipping Norton, Liverpool, Gateshead, Leeds, Sheffield, Thames Ditton, Newbury, Bury, Scunthorpe, Halifax, York, Middlesbrough, Bristol, Plymouth, Dartmouth, Exeter, Southampton, London, Brighton and Guildford between October 12 and November 17. Tickets are on sale now.

Head below to check out Willy Moore, the latest track to be lifted from the LP. Discussing it, Smith said:

“Collected in Harry Smith’s Anthology of American Folk Music, no-one knows who wrote it, but it’s probably from the early 20th century. I first heard this performed by the gentleman genius Wizz Jones. It’s a heart-breaking account of two young lovers’ tragedy.”
