Chris Smither singing "Origin of species"

No - he is not singing the book, but Chris Smither is indeed talking about origin of species (tip from a Simple Prop). A nice mixture of science & religion in a little over three minutes (see lyrics here). Actually this song is played quite a bit on our local (fantastic) radio station, 93.9 - The River (If you are not familiar with the station, check it out. You may find an interesting mix of music here).

Here is Chris Smither:


Well...we can all find support for his version of Intelligent Design. By the way, this song was included among the 100 best songs of 2006 by Rolling Stone.

And on top of everything else, Smither is an absolutely brilliant guitar player! :-)

He's playing at the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse in Franklin on September 11, fyi. http://www.circlefolk.org/

I'll be going to Acadia that weekend, otherwise I might go.
