Tom Portman and Maciej Zavoronek

Friday August 2 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Train to Nowhere, a concert with Tom Portman and Maciej Zavoronek  – Friday 2nd August 8:30pm

Tom Portman: Vocals, Guitar & Dobro (slide guitar) and Maciej Zavoronek on Harmonica, Clarinet and Saxophone

Original music inspired by Country Blues, Jazz and a few covers of Hank Williams, Mississpi John Hurt, J.J Cale and Eric Bibb.

‘Train to Nowhere’ is a new, raw, stripped back rootsy country blues album from Tom Portman. It couples deft songwriting with intricate guitar and dobro playing that is the hallmark of Tom’s work. Portman is joined on this album by maestro Maciej (Magic) Zaworonek’s poetic harmonica lines. The title track ‘Train to Nowhere’ was penned by Australian song writer Kevin Lym, to a Dobro melody Tom was playing as they busked & drifted their way around the south of France many years ago. Tom’s songs on this album feature his wry humor, but also contain the subtle depth that one expects from a songwriter of Portman’s standing. The album also includes cover versions of Tom’s songwriting heroes Hank Williams, Tim O’Brien and Eric Bibb.

 

Tickets €15/€20 available here
