The Shed challenges listeners with an ever-changing list of performers that the minds behind Smitty’s have curated to entertain and enlighten. You may think that going to see a classical accordionist or Indian Sarod player is out of your comfort zone, but trust that the Smitty’s team won’t lead you astray. The Shed is always forward thinking, but most importantly, always good.
Drawing on the influence of Pat Metheny, John Scofield, Paul Motian and many more, MRT brings a fresh edge to the world of the guitar trio. After the launch of their first album Anecdotes in early 2016, the trio return playing a brand new set of melody-driven original compositions. The Matthew Read Trio will be visiting Kansas Smitty’s for the launch party of their much anticipated second album Anecdotes Volume 2.
