From his early days at Club 47, the Cambridge coffeehouse that also gave Joan Baez, Bob Dylan and Judy Collins their start back in the 1960's, through 14 albums, to his sold out Club 47® concert series which has filled the likes of Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center, Tom's knack for finding wonderful songs, writing his own and championing emerging artists has made him a legend. Tom's music includes healthy doses of both folk and blues influences.

Billy Joe Shaver

A rough-hewn discovery of Kris Kristofferson in the early 1970s, Billy Joe Shaver was simultaneously the most down-to-earth and the most poetically ambitious of country music's "outlaws." He wrote most of the songs on Waylon Jennings's "Honky Tonk Heroes," which Rolling Stone magazine once called "the greatest country album ever recorded", and ever since then he's been creating powerful, honest music in a gritty but poetic style that's all his own. Shaver is truly one of the most respected living figures in American music.
