Johnsmith Spring 2019 Newsletter
Hello friends, long time, no hear from me, eh? I hope this finds you all leaning into a beautiful spring wherever you are. My wife, Jo, and I just got home Saturday from two weeks of camping at Fort Pickens in Gulf Islands National Seashore near Pensacola FL. Gorgeous white beaches and lots of walking, reading, campfires etc.
And now we’re all packed up and flying to Ireland today where I will be leading two back-to-back tours to Counties Cork, Kerry, and Clare.
When I return I have a couple of fun shows: Friday, May 31 in Platteville, WI and Saturday, June 1st for a fun night at Leo and Leona’s in Newburg Corners near LaCrosse, WI. I’ll be joined by my dear friends Dan Sebranek, Larry Dalton, and Radoslav Lorkovic. Come join us, this is one of my favorite gigs of the year.
Then it is off to do the Alaskan Inside Passage cruise with Dan Sebranek and Larry Dalton. 7 nights cruising from Vancouver, Canada to Seward, AK. We’ll be playing several concerts on and off the boat. There still might be some openings. Check it out at
I’ll also be leading another sold out river rafting trip on the Middle Fork River in Idaho July 31- Aug 5. Next year I will be offering a trip on the Middle Fork July 31- Aug 5, 2020 and the Main Salmon River Aug 6-11, 2020.
A few shows are listed below - more to come.
Have a wonderful spring and summer season folks and I hope to see some of you along the way.
