I left the country in 1970 and my dozen years in other countries, mostly in Africa & South America, have provided a global perspective to my music. My travels helped me realize that people all around the world are essentially the same in their basic life needs and their desires to live peacefully in their communities. These experiences have informed my commitment to working for international understanding as I organize at home. A powerful way to educate and inspire is with music. I do political satire, parody and social commentary that I hope you enjoy and share with your friends and sing together in the streets and in your living rooms. I also have a children's CD, that will leave you burping. Looking forward to seeing you on the road, Tom"). Greenfield, MA:
