Album Artwork

For over 35 years, through dumb luck, a lot of work, and the auspices of good friends and great pickers, I have "lived the dream" of the coast-to-coast troubador, performing in hundreds of concert halls, festivals, coffeehouses, and clubs. Along the way I created and produced a national radio/TV program River City Folk (heard on public radio and XM satellite radio since 1985 and still going strong); produced festivals such as Winterfolk in Portland, Oregon and "The Festival at the Fort" in Omaha, Nebraska; and writtena book internationally available through Routledge Publishing, New York (Promoting Your Music; The Lovin' of the Game with Dick Weissman)

[UPDATE NOTE: The book is available online from Amazon in hard cover and Kindle Editions - Click here for information]

But most of all, I have tried to be true to singing about the things I most care about in life; love, history, friends, wine, and books. This album, my 12th, is an opportunity to reflect and rejoice on the entire journey to date ...

Cheers, Tom
