Tom Russell's songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Doug Sahm, Nanci Griffith, k.d. lang, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Dave Alvin, Iris DeMent, Dave Van Ronk, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Tom Paxton, Ian Tyson, Joe Ely and a hundred others.

‘A storyteller first, Russell’s songs mix the right amount of humour, fond reflection, passing sorrow, and smart observation to register on nearly all of the listening pleasure zones as they pass…He’s still cool, sounding like Johnny Cash…There are good reasons why Russell is so revered by his musical and literary peers.’ - Saving Country Music.com

The very definition of a Renaissance man, Russell is also a painter, author and essayist who has published six books including a book on his art, a book of his songs, and a book of essays on the American West. His art is in the permanent collections of major museums in the U.S. and he is represented by six galleries around the world.

It will be a night not to be missed by those who truly appreciate folk and Americana music – and unique talent.
