About Richard Smith & Julie Adams: English-born Richard Smith was a child guitar prodigy who first came to prominence at the age of 11 when he performed with mentor Chet Atkins. By the time he reached his early twenties, both Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed began to refer to Richard Smith as their "Hero". He has quickly mastered whatever guitar style captures his fancy, and has absorbed the complex styles of many guitar greats including Django Reinhardt, Les Paul, and Lenny Breau. He is also an accomplished banjo and violin player. Richard has toured around the world, surprising audiences everywhere with his genius, showcasing a repertoire spanning an incredible range of musical styles from country, bluegrass, mainstream jazz, modern pop and rock, to classical guitar.Richard often tours and performs with his wife, American virtuoso cellist Julie Adams, and the duo will perform together on Sept. 21. This will be their 1st seacoast appearance in 4 years since they sold out an SGS show in '04. Here's what a few of his fellow guitarists have to say about Richard:* "The most amazing guy I know on the guitar." "He can play anything I know, only better." Chet Atkins.* Guitar playing at its finest. Don't miss this one." Doyle Dykes* "If you like my playing, you should hear Richard Smith." Tommy Emmanuel* "He is one of the world's greatest guitarists." Muriel Anderson
