WUSB's Sunday Street Street Series Presents Tom Russel.

Sunday, April 29th at 5 P.M., in WUSB's Sunday Street Series at The Long Island Museum
(his only New York City area appearance)

Tom Russell, one of America’s great songwriters, returns to our area with a wealth of new songs from “Folk Hotel,” an album cited by many radio programmers as one of 2017’s best releases. Last year also saw Tom releasing “Play One More,” an album paying homage to the songs of Ian and Sylvia.

By themselves, these recordings would be most impressive yet they add to a rich collection close to thirty albums making Tom Russell one of our most important and prolific songwriters. Add to this the fact that he is a riveting, legendary performer in his shows.

The Boston Globe has called Tom "the most powerful voice on the contemporary folk circuit." David Letterman featured him many times on Late Night, and Tom's album releases have been regarded as one masterpiece after another. (www.tomrussell.com)

Advance sale is $35 at www.sundaystreet.org through Friday, April 27th, with any remaining tickets at the door for $40 (cash only at the door).
