Piano Man Tom is an Irish singer/songwriter who has a wonderful motto – “leave no stone unturned in the quest for musical excellence.”
Today I’m delighted to introduce you to this talented artist who composes and performs “story-songs for all the family to enjoy together.”
Plus, since Christmas is less than a week away, and thanks to Piano Man Tom, we will have one last giveaway to celebrate the holidays and the season of giving. Tom has graciously provided a copy of his DVD “Proud To Be Irish” for one lucky reader to win.
But before you learn how to enter the giveaway, first let me introduce you to Tom.
Piano Man Tom:
Tom is an Irish born singer, pianist and composer. In 2014, Tom began performing with Holland America Cruise line. Working on the ships, Tom has met and entertained thousands of people of all nationalities.
Praise for his performances is high indeed. Helene from Ireland says:
“His songs are tales of life, love and hope; witty fables that reveal great truths and offer good advice. Tom is not only a brilliant musician and talented singer but also an enchanting poet, a story-teller, a philosopher who delivers each performance with charisma and panache.”
Why Tom Recorded “Songs From Ireland”:
Over many years of performing throughout the world Tom learned how much enjoyment people of all nationalities get from listening to Irish songs and melodies. These tunes seem to transcend all barriers and speak to people at a deep and profound level.
After many requests from people around the world, Tom has recorded a CD of his favorite Irish songs, those airs and melodies he considers to be amongst Ireland’s greatest songs.
Here’s how he describes his Songs from Ireland collection ….
“Think of it as an adventure into times long past…through melodies from yesteryear…and stories of an age gone by which will live forever through these songs.
Lyrically, these pieces are full of imagery, romantic language, Irish phrases, and a bit of good old Irish humor too. I still smile when I listen to It’s A Long Way To Tipperary. Other songs will never be forgotten like Danny Boy, Galway Bay, and the beautiful Rose Of Tralee.”
“Proud To Be Irish” DVD:
Written by Piano Man Tom in 2015 – “Proud To Be Irish” is a story about an American woman who travels to Ireland to trace her family history and it tells of all the places she and her family visit around the country.
Here’s a little introductory video …
There are 11 songs in the show. Some of the songs featured are audience favorites like When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, Galway Bay, Too-ra Loo-ra Loo-ral, It’s A Long Way To Tipperary, Danny Boy, and more.
All the songs from Tom’s new album “Songs From Ireland” are performed during the show along with live narration, or along with pre-recorded narration set to images of Ireland.
A live DVD of the show with a full band, lighting, sound, and film crew was recorded in Ireland in October, 2015.
One lucky reader will win a copy of Piano Man Tom’s DVD Proud To Be Irish.
