I had the pleasure of seeing Todd Snider at The Birchmere Music Hall in Alexandria, Virginia. I was completely entertained. He is a true storyteller. In every sense of the word. It’s folk music of today’s generation, but with the respectful nod to the folk music of the ‘60s generation, which in my opinion, a lot of today’s music wouldn't exist with out it. Not only the style of music, but the subject matter in the lyrics. As far as political and social issues go, Todd touches on some of this stuff, but it’s done in such a way that's not preachy. His songs are funny. Not like joke funny, but smart funny. Even his more serious songs have at least one funny line in it.
