Tom Lewis Livestream Concert
Tom's repertoire—from traditional shanties to songs fashioned out of his own seafaring background—recruits his audience for a voyage by turns reflective, dramatic, and humorous. Born in Northern Ireland, Tom's Celtic heritage is obvious in his clear, strong voice, evoking quiet sorrow for a fisherman lost to the sea just as honestly as it powers out a shanty "to be heard above the gales."
With songs that have become folk standards; known and sung wherever great choruses ring out; Tom accompanies himself on button accordion and ukulele—but it's that powerful vocal style and infectious humour — that quality of entertaining—which keeps audiences coming back again ... and again.
This is a partnership effort between 5 folk organizations (Folk Music Society of New York, Inc, Old Songs, Inc, Folksong Society of Greater Washington, Folk Song Society of Greater Boston, and Branford FMS) and Jeanie Meneely & Rob Van Sante (Falcon Audio Visual Arts Studio) live-streamed from Whitby, UK
