Tom Shed, a Grammy nominated songwriter and performer brings “history, humor and the human condition” to audiences around the world in an exciting and entertaining concert. Performing on guitar and banjo throughout the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, New Zealand and Australia for many years, Tom shares his unique perspective of life, love and the world around us. History – Tom sings about real events: • The great hurricane of 1928 • The great fire of Jacksonville • A politician’s demise in pre-civil rights America in 1953 • Lost in a swamp and the unforgiving nature of the Wild Humor – Tom brings to his concert songs about: alien abduction; experiencing unique southern hospitality; Motorhome mayhem on Florida’s highways; and learning to appreciate your Grandmother. Human condition – Tom helps us look at life: a celebration of Single Mothers; the many faces of fear; dreaming of lost opportunities; love at first sight; a questionnaire for marriage; and PTSD. Tom writes and performs sound tracks for films and television including Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Ringside Miami, and the award winning Archie Carr, A Naturalist in Florida. Tom also produces albums for fellow musicians. Most notably “Walk Proud My Son” for the late, Florida folk icon and Native American, Don Grooms. “Anyone who has seen Tom Shed’s live performances know he is a dynamic entertainer who mixes equal amounts of humor, history and awareness themes with just the right mix of good vocals, fine guitar playing and excellent songwriting that makes you realize this guy’s for real.” – Ron Johnson, Florida Times Union More information on Tom Shed can be found at Tomshed.com .
