Tom has also worked closely with Yamaha over the years, demonstrating their acoustic guitars, providing assistance with product development and performing live at guitar shows and festivals.
In 2005, Tom moved to Penzance as a street musician with his beaten-up National Triolian and was quickly embraced and put to work by the vibrant local music scene.
Immersing himself in old-time traditional music, Tom has developed a mastery of slide guitar, fingerpicking and open tunings on his National Resonator, clawhammer banjo, fiddle and pre-war tongue-blocked harmonica, along with a powerful and honest singing style that draws heavily on his blues, gospel and mountain music influences.
With a voracious appetite for traditional songs and styles, he brings a deep understanding of the history of the music he plays to every performance.
Over the years Tom has developed a passion for luthiery, building box fiddles and guitars from reclaimed materials and driftwood, biscuit-tin banjos and dulcimers, bamboo fifes etc for himself and other local musicians, occasionally bringing them along to gigs and recording sessions.
A gifted songwriter, Tom has performed and recorded many of his own compositions, and with this experience and understanding of songcraft, brings his own unique flavour to his vast repertoire of traditional songs.
