TOM is slated to perform his original “Northern American Songs of Life and Love” and well known “covers” by artists like Gordon Lightfoot, Jonathan Edwards and Bob Dylan in a special acoustic concert on Saturday Evening, January 26th, 2013 at The NEST at Phoenix Wing House of Design, 449 Main Street Suite 3, Bennington, VT starting at 7:00 p.m. The “all ages” concert is also combined with an ongoing art show at The NEST.
If you like story songs and ballads, acoustic guitar & harmonica mixed with humorous tales by “a man with a guitar and stories to tell” then make The Nest at Phoenix Wing House of Design in downtown Bennington,VT your destination for this upcoming Saturday evening concert on January 26th.
“Plans to perform further afield nationally and hopefully internationally are now in the inception stages and I hope to have a ‘rough cut’ all acoustic ‘preview’ CD available for sale at the January 26th concert at The NEST,” Abdow said. “Some of the pieces I will be featuring on my upcoming new CD and DVD scheduled for more formal releases later this year are to be included in the all acoustic preview,” he added “and if it’s not ready by the 26th, it will be hopefully soon after depending on production schedules.” The studio version of Tom Abdow’s new music CD is scheduled to be released through more than a dozen well known internet music store websites.”
