Johnsmith Alaska cruise and Idaho rafting

I hope you’ve all had a fun, memorable summer. It’s been a full one for me. The Kerrville TX Folk Fest, two trips to Ireland, hometown DeWitt Iowa concert, Woody Guthrie Fest, Salmon River ID raft trip, Larryfest, a few Brewer games, and a few days up on Madeline Island. Sweet!

Announcing first Alaska music cruise June 7-14 2019 Wooo wooo!

Rafting dates on the Middle Fork of the Salmon river Stanley, ID July 31-Aug 5th 2019 - only a handful of openings remain.

Sept – Dec gigs and travels.

I’m excited to share the news that I, along with Dan Sebranek and Larry Dalton, will be hosting an Inside Passage Alaska cruise June 7-14, 2019 from Vancouver, BC to Seward, AK. We’ll be playing a few concerts during the week and will be stopping in Ketchikan, Icy Strait Point, Juneau, Skagway, and Hubbard Glacier. To learn more about the cruise, pricing, itinerary, and signing up, visit Hope you can join us for this first ever music cruise.

 Also next summer, I’ll be returning to Stanley, Idaho to host another group rafting down the majestic, gin clear, Middle Fork of the Salmon River onJuly 31-Aug 5, 2019.  This is one of the most beautiful places in the US. 6 days of no roads, lights, cell service. We stop at a few hot springs along the way as well as a few hikes. Incredible all-you-can-eat food: salmon, steak, curry, fajitas, pineapple upside-down cake, morning soufflés, etc etc. Yours truly along with my dear friend, Michael Lille, will be sharing songs around the campfire every night.  Trip of a life time. For more info visit Only a handful of slots are left. This will sell out in the next weeks.
