Acclaimed Americana singer-songwriter Todd Snider will bring The American Troubadour Tour to Montana for two concerts Fall 2022. He’ll play at The Wilma in Missoula on Saturday, October 1st and The ELM in Bozeman on Sunday, October 2nd. Both shows will feature an opening performance from singer-songwriter Nicki Bluhm.
As with most of Todd’s shows, these will be fully seated performances to provide an intimate, up-close and personal concert experience. If you have a favorite spot to sit, make sure to grab your tickets early because the seats are reserved.
With 15+ albums under his belt, Todd Snider is the epitome of prolific. We could spend a lot of time here perusing through his catalog, but we’ll keep it recent. In 2021, he released his latest album, First Agnostic Church Of Hope and Wonder. Holler called the album “…a refreshing concoction of influences that Snider has been exploring for the best part of his musical career, and certainly an invigorating shake to the often too purist form of Americana music.”
Staying true to his prolific spirit, Todd is already gearing up for the release of a new live album on September 23rd. We wouldn’t be surprised if he teased the album with a single or two, so be on the lookout.

About Todd Snider
Troubadour, meaning an itinerant singer of songs, is a word that dates back centuries, and comes from the French verb “trouver,” which is to find. These musical wanderers would find and invent stories humorous and intellectual, romantic and earthy, performing them as they went from town to town. Troubadour is also the word that acclaimed musician-raconteur Todd Snider leans on to describe himself and his latest release, Live: Return of the Storyteller.
“I think my first thought with this record was I wanted to remind people really quickly that I’m a troubadour,” says Snider. “Playing live is the only chance for me to show, ‘This is what I really do.’ I’ve never thought of myself as a recording artist. I’m someone who gets over by traveling around, telling stories, making up new songs and singing them alone on stage.”
Before he even made his professional debut with Songs For The Daily Planet in 1994, Snider already knew that he wanted to be part of this time-honored tradition. “I like the romantic notion of drifting around and laughing your way through life,” he says. “Like Jim Croce or Mark Twain. I felt like I was half-doing that anyway. When I was 19, I was a real drifter and a sofa circuit person. Then when I first saw Jerry Jeff Walker and John Prine play, I became obsessed.
