If you are a fan of singer-songwriters and roots music, then may I make a suggestion to you? Head to Johnson Hall on May 3 to catch Maine’s own Putnam Smith as he performs there in Gardiner. He’s supporting his fourth album “Kitchen, Love,” which was released in 2013 on his own Itchy Sabot Records. During the winter months, he tours across the country (and into Canada, as well) playing his music to appreciative crowds but during the summer months he’s hard at work on his homestead (a log cabin) where he cuts and splits his own firewood, and has a “substantive” garden. In a recent telephone interview, Smith chatted about his life, his music and the fact that he prints up the jackets to his CDs on an antique letterpress.
