Tom performs humorous, VERY participatory (sometimes even a bit athletic!) songs for kids and their families. Fun is the guiding principle.

Tom accompanies himself on guitar, banjo, harmonica, and a drum machine. His 2015 program, 'Howl at the Moon with a Hero Tune (mostly hapless heroes, that is!)', is designed with the 'Every Hero has a Story' theme in mind. He travels with a great sound system for use as needed- it works nicely outside, too. He can be booked for $295/275 with no mileage fee- please see below for details. Dozens of librarian references are available upon request. 'Tom is a wonderfully engaging performer... sure to raise even the most reticent out of their seat! We 'howled at the moon, sang a wild thing tune', and wanted more!' - Nicole Carner, Library Director, Pember Library, Granville 'Tom is masterful both as a musician and in how he relates to his audience... his sense of humor and sheer fun shines throughout it all. He is a winner every time!' Mary Gleason, Children's Librarian, Irondequoit Library
