Just a quick post about Howard Smith. He ran the wonderful People Records in Guildford for 7 years, and during that time put on some great gigs in Guildford, featuring artists who tend to broadly fall under the folk and Americana genres. Smoke Fairies at St Mary’s Church and Tiny Ruins at the Keep were two that stick in the mind. He has two shows coming up –
Ryley Walker – 12 August at St Mary’s Church in Guildford
Phil Cook – 22 August at The Keep in Guildford
I don’t know either of them, but I do know that of all the promoters in Guildford he is the one that puts on shows at the most beautiful venues and has the highest quality control. The artists he puts on REALLY do know what they’re doing. If you are thinking about going then I’d definitely recommend booking in advance.
