Prineville Mayor Betty Roppe is bringing Johnsmith Music into the City of Prineville for a free concert on October 16 at 4pm at Lutheran Church on the corner of Harwood and Third Streets.
“My purpose is to give the citizens of Prineville a big “thank you” from me for their help in making my six years as their Mayor successful,” says Mayor Roppe.
Johnsmith is one of those artists so often under-recognized – he possesses a genius that cannot be denied, ignored or overlooked. For the past thirty-plus years, Johnsmith has been sharing his music all across America and abroad. He has become a favorite at festivals, clubs, and house concerts alike.
In addition to being a Kerrville New Folk Winner, Johnsmith has released seven solo CDs to rave reviews, leads musical tours to Ireland, teaches songwriting and has served as a staff songwriter in Nashville.
With his faded jeans, his twinkly blue eyes, and his infectious smile, John immediately connects with audiences. You get the sense of a man who loves his life, his family and friends, and who loves nothing more than sharing that love in song and stories all across this land.
