His energy and humor draw in listeners of all ages, children and adults alike. Tom’s repertoire includes his own compositions, folk classics and a variety of multicultural songs. His song topics span the gamut from silly songs like “Bellybutton” to the touching, like his wonderful “Love Grows”. Tom likes to include motions, sign language and Spanish into his shows, which has everyone’s brain working in multiple ways.” The concert is sponsored by the Wautoma Area Kiwanis.
