Tom Mayhas been a folksinger/guitarist/songwriter/performer for nearly fifty years. He has recorded fourteen albums of original material, and produced various CDs for other artists. His touring has taken him to every state in the US—as well as to most Canadian provinces and to Europe. He has headlined concerts with symphony orchestras, been featured at music festivals across North America, and opened shows for Gordon Lightfoot, Willie Nelson, Alabama, and many others. In 1985, he began producing the nationally syndicated radio program, River City Folk. He also founded and directs "Winterfolk" in Portland, Oregon—an annual concert now in its thirty-second year of raising funds for Pacific Northwest residents in need of food and shelter.
Tom’s journey has truly been a “Life in Song”—a joyous romp in a challenging, competitive corner of the arts. Full of amusing stories, interesting geography, bungled romances, and excellent wine, this is a book to be savored by anyone who enjoys a story of “making it” in the music business—a process that means vastly different things to different folks—and having fun along the way. Tom’s dedication to music that makes a difference has never faltered, and it shines through in this peripatetic tale.
