Tom Lewis loves to sing. And he loves it when people sing along. His powerful voice easily reaches to the rafters and just seems to pull other voices up aloft with it. Known throughout the maritime music world for penning classics like A Sailor Ain’t a Sailor (The Last Shanty), Marching Inland, Sailor’s Prayer (the one where the dove has wings as sharp as razors), Tom is just as likely to belt out a traditional sea chantey pulled straight from Davy Jones locker. He’ll even tell you a story, and it might even be true!
Tom got hooked on sea music when he heard the likes of Louis Killen, Archie Fisher and Ewan McColl in his early folk club days. During his 23 years as a submariner in Her Majesty’s Navy, Tom never missed the chance to visit folk clubs, concerts and festivals, building a reputation that has spread across three continents. Add to his credit ten albums and a hefty songbook.
Like other Falcon events, we're suggesting a donation (£10–$15) to support the artist. Paypal.me/tulip0852

John Ward Trio, Thursday, July 15
Mark your calendars and stay tuned, Janie Meneely
From Joe Offer:
Janie and Rob are doing a wonderful job of these concerts. The Martin Carthy concert was Saturday, May 1, but the remaining concerts on the schedule are on Thursdays, all at 7:30 PM London time:
- Tom Lewis, May 20
- John Conolly, June 17
- John Ward Trio, July 15.
I don't know of the John Ward Trio, but I have always dreamed of seeing Martin Carthy, Tom Lewis, and John Conolly in concert. I thought that John Conolly would be here in California in 2021, but the concert tour was cancelled.
As performers age and the cost of visas and such continues to increase, there's a good chance we won't get to see these wonderful performers in person in the U.S. I'm very thankful to Janie and Rob for introducing us to them online, but I'm sad because these online concerts may be my only opportunity.
All of these concerts and more are still available online at this link.
