Singer-songwriter Tom Cordle returns to the Dogwood Center on Saturday, August 18th. Tom calls his unique brand of entertainment “history in song”. His blend of history and music has made him a perennial favorite at the Dogwood’s Black Box!
This time around, his concert will be a retrospective of the blues. As he puts it, the history of the blues is the history of America. Once again, he’ll be joined by several of his talented musician friends.
Tom has written hundreds of songs and recorded more than a dozen CDs of original music. His CD Kidstuff was adapted for the musical A Day in the Life of Rylee. He has also opened for Willie Nelson and headlined many concerts himself.
Tom wears several other hats as well. He is the author of two books, Scattered Thoughts and The Disappearing Cemetery. One reviewer described the latter as “a fascinating mix of prose, poetry, history, and commentary.”
Tom is also involved with films, including The Seventh Day which he wrote and directed. He also wrote the script for the documentary Artists in the Forest. In addition, he has worked on a number of feature films including My Girl, Matinee and The Work and the Glory.
