Previously Performed in: 2013, 2001, 1998, 1993, 1991
(Calgary, AB)

The honky-tonk tradition is in good hands with Tom and his talented band of merry roots music makers, who take country music’s long, rich heritage, dose it liberally with urban grit and passionately spit it back. Tom’s background studying French horn and guitar, education at U of A plus his voracious appetite for reading, have served him well as he crafts memorable songs and makes classic tunes his own. With the skill of an artisan and the soul of a true street poet, his ballads make his luck gone bad (the title of the recent retrospective of Tom’s 30-year career) a good thing for the rest of us.
