 Thomas Earl – “Vintage Acoustic Folk Music – The Real Thing”

Thomas Earl has been writing and performing music for over 50 years.  He is proficient in both guitar and bluegrass banjo, with a focus on creative finger style techniques. He has written dozens of original songs, including original music for theater productions, and has released two CDs of original music.  Reviews of his CDs include descriptions such as , “…a gifted poet that has the ability to set it all to music in a beautiful and unforgettable way … “, …a five star indulgence from start to finish.” and “Gold dust Magic glitters with years of musical talent”.  Thomas’ unique approach to playing and writing is based on very early influences ranging from Joni Mitchell and James Taylor to Mississippi, John Hurt and Doc Watson.  Thomas’ live performances include a mix of covers of tunes of his favorite musicians as well as his own original compositions. Thomas has just returned to New York after living for a year in Maui, where he was working on music for his new upcoming CD.
