Richard Gilewitz live on the Blue Smoke Stage!

“At turns mesmerizing, playful, humorous and wistful, Gilewitz is a master of moods when he speaks to audiences through his guitar. He's always at the service of his inner voice, which has a sneaky way of connecting directly to the listener's heart.”-- Creative Loafing Magazine, Tampa Bay FL

Blue Smoke welcomes you to 'The Sunday Sit Down Get Down' our very own folk club event. Our doors open at 3 pm and the show get underway at 4 pm so make sure you come early to get settled in.

Richard Gilewitz, American fingerstyle guitarist and entertainer, charms the audience with mixtures of tunes sprinkled with stories about the composers who have influenced acoustic guitar music, while adding his own quirky insights into life in general. Pulling from over four decades of playing, he continually speaks through his 6 and 12-string guitars as a master of moods who is always at the service of his inner voice. His performances are laced with sounds from traditional to blues, Americana to European Classical, and folk to pop with thought-provoking journeys into the mind of a travelling raconteur.

He’s played venues large and small from Nova Scotia to Australia, Austria to New Zealand, The Netherlands to California, and points in between. He’s shared the stage with a list of folks such as Richard Thompson, Leo Kottke, Warren Zevon, John Prine, Taj Mahal, Indigo Girls, the band America, Brooks Williams, Michael Fix, Patty Larkin, Steve Morse, Adrian Legg, The California Guitar Trio, John McCutcheon, as well as John Renbourn, Mose Allison, John Fahey, Norman Blake, and John Hammond.
