About “Inside-Out on the Loading Dock”:
Prior to the pandemic, 3S had formed a roster of local, regional, and nationally touring music acts that dedicated audiences would come back to see perform each year inside our Performance Space.

As we continue to navigate through COVID times, your support and patience has been unwavering and we can’t wait to hold concerts inside again. We’re so excited that milestone is within reach in the coming months as it becomes increasingly safer to move around and gather with friends, family, and community with a bit more ease.

As a thank you for your support all along the way, we’ve invited some of your favorite nationally touring “indoor” acts to perform for you outside in the Loading Dock area at 3S this summer. We hope you enjoy these incredibly intimate shows!
About Chris Smither:

“With “Smither is an American original – a product of the musical melting pot and one of the absolute best singer-songwriters in the world.”—Associated Press.

Chris Smither sings about “the big things – life, love, loss – in a penetrating and poetic yet unpretentious way.”
