Tom´s repertoire—from traditional shanties to songs fashioned out of his own seafaring background—recruits his audience for a voyage by turns reflective, dramatic and humorous. Born in Northern Ireland, Tom´s Celtic heritage is obvious in his clear, strong voice, evoking quiet sorrow for a fisherman lost to the sea just as honestly as it powers out a shanty “to be heard above the gales.“
With songs that have become folk standards; known and sung wherever great choruses ring out; Tom accompanies himself on button accordion and ukulele—but it´s that powerful vocal style and infectious humour—that quality of entertaining—which keeps audiences coming back again ... and again.
We recommend you arrive early as we ARE expecting a full house!
Of course if you want to, you could always arrive early and sample the Herga Burger meal, put on by the pub especially for Herga nights!
