Tom Russell Fans, Rejoice

I don’t know how many Tom Russell fans there are among the Chicago Boyz and Grrlz and Readerz, but whatever the number is, I think it should be greater, because TR is IMO one of the best singer/songwriters working in America today. He’s just published a new book: 120 Songs, with lyrics, guitar chords, and stories about how each of the songs was inspired and written.

I reviewed Russell’s album The Man From God Knows Where, a song-cycle about the American immigrant experience, here.

Some other TR songs:

Stealing Electricity

The Pugilist at 59

Bucking Horse Moon

Russell’s concert tour is now on the east coast; schedule here
