Westercon 72 Special Filk Guest of Honor - Tom Smith

TSmith Guitar

 

“Tom Smith has been the soundtrack for a generation. Mind you, a really weird generation. Sci-fi, fantasy, computers, comic books, gaming, movies, life, love, the occasional recipe — Tom does it all. Or at least, he sings about it all. Working in every style imaginable, and often making things up on the fly, his concerts are highly interactive, slightly dangerous, and always a lot of fun. If you’ve heard him, you know you have to be there. If not, take a chance — come on down and live the myth of Smith!” (Don't blame us -- Tom wrote this. Oddly enough, he was holding himself at gunpoint at the time....)
