"The greatest living country songwriter is a man named Tom Russell; he’s written songs that capture the essence of America, a trait that can only be matched by the country’s greatest novelists" — John Swenson, Rolling Stone.
"Tom Russell is an original. A brilliant songwriter with a restless curiosity and an almost violent imagination." — Annie Proulx, Pulitzer Prize winning author of "The Shipping News" & "Brokeback Mountain".
Tom’s latest CD, "Love & Fear", is a stark and personal look deep into the heart and soul of this most eloquent of songwriters. His shows are always intense and entertaining. Also, don’t miss this rare chance to hear Rosalie Sorrels’ stories & songs and the yodelling cowboys Wylie & The Wild West!
