www.tommysands.com
$25, Seniors $20, Students & Children Under 14 Free
From the pioneering days with the highly influential Sands Family, bringing Irish Music from New York’s Carnegie Hall to Moscow’s Olympic Stadium, he has developed into one of the most powerful songwriters and enchanting solo performers in Ireland today. He enjoys celebrity status in his homeland and elsewhere, tempered by artistic integrity and the sorrow of personal tragedy in his war-torn homeland. Walking the road between Protestant and Catholic, he dreams of improving that reality. As part of the acclaimed Sands Family, one of the most important traditional groups in the early years of the Ireland’s folk revival, Tommy has worked to add beauty to the world and to point out where it still needs improvement.
