It's About Time

Our Musical Past

Copper Tom: Music, Comedy and Storytelling

Copper Tom incorporates cool, sometimes arcane, rhythms into accessible songs.  He draws inspiration from American roots music, including old time country, blues and roots rock and roll.  He might even throw in a little New Orleans funk, Trinidadian calypso, reggae and some fun tales to boot.  Join us on Wednesday, July 25 from 7:00-8:00 PM as we sing and dance to Copper Tom's eclectic music.
