Tom O'Donnell is a singer-guitarist who lives in both West Virginia, USA and Northumberland, England. He has brought his unique blend of Americana, Roots, Folk and Country music to audiences in America, England and Europe for years. Featuring stunning vocals and complex and intricate acoustic guitar stylings, Tom's songs range from thoughtful to hilarious, brooding to joyful, but always beautiful and reflective, whether they celebrate the hardness and resilience of the American heartland, the joy of discovery and insight, or memories and ruminations on life. Tom's songs and stories will mesmerize an audience.
A survivor of the Great Folk Revival (or Scare) of the '60s, Tom was inspired by the Kingston Trio and later by the singer/songwriters of the era, including Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell and especially John Stewart. Although broadly oriented to Americana, Folk and Roots music, Tom's tastes are eclectic. Don't be surprised if you hear some blues, or '50s rock & roll, or even British pop. Not to mention more than a bit of humor.
Tom is particularly suitable for intimate venues, and can provide up to three hour-long sets. Tom is not suitable as background music for an event.
