Tom has been a vital presence in the filk community since 1985. He creates compelling music, performing it with verve, and electrifying audiences. He has done much to popularize filk and draw in new people over the last twenty years, not just because of his undeniable talent, but because of his real passion for the music, and for the community.
He is one of the few filkers whose music has transcended the genre and gained recognition in mundane circles as well. His material has been featured on Dr. Demento’s radio show and fan club CDs, and on National Public Radio’s “Sound and Spirit”.
Tom was inducted into the Filk Hall of Fame in 2005. You can check him out here.
