smith’s well-resined voice sparkles on this enchanting set of euphoric folk songs.

He is a genuine folksinger, an inquisitive truth-seeker, devoted song interpreter, and enchanting writer. smith has played guitar for artists such as David Gray, Lisa Hannigan, Joe Henry and Joan Baez. John describes his reason for making ‘Hummingbird’ thusly: "I returned to Sam Lakeman’s Somerset studio in March of 2018, two years since recording my previous album ‘Headlong’ in that same place, to commit six of my favourite folk songs to tape, alongside one cover version and three original songs. The tracks quickly took on their own shape in Sam’s able hands. I invited several good friends to join me in this process: Cara Dillon, John McCusker and Ben Nicholls."
