Tom Wilson is a tall man. He has a big voice. His presence is large. His song-writing is full-on. Everything about Tom Wilson causes you to remember him. His paintings are delightful. Over 40 people enjoyed Tom’s humour, songs, and his music at a Home Routes House Concert that was full of insights, great live music, and laughter. It seemed that we went down the road of musical Canadiana, into the trials and tribulations of growing up, and in and out of personal stories from Tom’s unique perspective and insights.
Tom and Angela (his roadie who also does his website and Stephen Fearing’s website) were storm-stayed an extra day at our place. I asked Tom for a few moments of his time to do a short podcast, before they left for Winnipeg. He obliged. His words are full of experience. He sang the beautiful haunting Stoned while sitting at the dining table and left his song-writing mark….moving on to other Home Routes House Concerts in Manitoba this week, and a tour in the US with Cowboy Junkies over the next couple of weeks. Thank you Tom!
Listen to the short podcast with him and the lovely version of Stoned:
