Richard Smith

“The most amazing guy I know on the guitar. He can play anything I know, only better.”  - Chet Atkins


Born in 1971 in Beckenham, England, Richard started his musical journey early, and first picked up the guitar at the age of 5. After some early solo performances in his youth, and six years of working as a trio with two of his brothers, Rob and Sam in the 90's, Richard moved to Nashville, TN in January 2000. 

In 2001 he won the national fingerpicking championship and has since forged a career as a solo artist, performing all over the USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Australia and Brazil, releasing solo records, duet and ensemble records. 

Constantly touring, his diverse repertoire includes fingerpicking classics, originals, fiddle tunes, blues, Joplin rags, jazz standards, classical repertoire and everything else from pop to Sousa marches.

Richard has also performed or recorded along the way with Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Tommy Emmanuel, Suzy Bogguss, Steve Wariner, Jimmy Fortune, Earl Klugh, Martin Taylor, Joscho Stephan, Sam Bush, Stuart Duncan, John Schneider, Lee Roy Parnell, Brent Mason, Rory Hoffman and a host of others.

Richard will be performing a solo show as part of our JazzPro Series on Wednesday, February 22, 2023 at 8 PM
