Chris Smither 

June 1. Apparently the Towne Crier has, at least for the moment, averted the impending loss of its home of 24 years (as reported in our February issue, a rent increase had the owners scrambling for a new venue). Thankfully, the present site has been soldiering on with fine dates like this one by folk-blues master Chris Smither, who rose to prominence on the '60s Boston scene and has seen his songs covered by fan Bonnie Raitt. With an intimate, confessional vibe, Smither's acoustic performances cross his deft storytelling and originals with American classics. (Ellis Paul sings June 2; the Chris O'Leary Band reels by June 9.) 8:30pm. $25, $30. Pawling. (845) 855-1300; Townecrier.com.
