Tom Dews Concert

My friend Tom Dews has a concert coming up this month at the historic Athenaeum in Alexandria, Virginia.  This is a nice venue in the heart of Old Town. 

Tom’s concert is set for next Thursday, September 11th, at 7 p.m.  Tickets are $10/person and The Athenaeum is located at 201 Prince Street.

If you aren’t familiar with Tom’s music, let me quote from the website:

Tom Dews soaked up roots rhythms and fished the great rivers of the southeast growing up in south Georgia and central Florida. After sojourns in North Carolina and Pennsylvania, he resides in Northern Virginia, still churning out his brand of original guitar with simultaneous harmonica and vocals from a lived-in and karma-buffeted voice. His three CDs, EPIPHANIES & EPITAPHS, BUTTONS BALLADS BLUES, and the new DRIVING DREAMS are available at Dews holds an endorsement from the M. Hohner Co. for harmonica studio work, and has contributed as a sideman to the work of a number of other artists. Hear Tom Dews @

For his day job, Tom is a librarian at Andrew’s school, but in the evenings and on the weekends he’s a first rate singer-songerwriter and – as you can gather from the above – he plays a mean blues harp.  (As the son of a librarian who loved to sing, I’m partial to this work/life combination.)  If you’re around Old Town next week, check Tom out.

More to come…
