Todd Snider, folk singer, songwriter and storyteller, will perform at 8 p.m. March 9 at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. 

Doors open at 7 p.m. and tickets are $35 for the orchestra pit, $30 for the orchestra/lower balcony and $25 for the upper balcony. 

Snider first debuted in 1994 and the venue’s website said he has reinvented his sound after 20 albums. His latest album, “First Agnostic Church of Hope and Wonder,” was released in 2021. 

The venue’s website said Snider’s songs have been described as sad and funny, as well as political and entertaining. The venue’s website says the songs are “written with a poet’s eye and a stand-up comedian’s sensibility.”

Snider’s live performances include conversations and banter between his songs. He has toured with John Prine, Emmylou Harris and Jimmy Buffett and played at festivals such as Farm Aid, Newport Folk Fest, Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Lockn’ Festival.

“2020 was a terrible year, and it kept taking people that I loved,” Snider said. “So I kept feeling funky, and the church idea came out of that.”
