HOST OF THE FOLK SESSIONS
Tom has an unusual, and colorful, history in the Communication field. During his seventeen years living in Los Angeles and working in the entertainment industry, he co-produced the “The Imperial Bells of China” Tour, the largest group of Chinese artists that ever toured the US, twice. He also worked closely with Tai, the amazing Indian elephant that starred in the movie, “Water for Elephants,” when he founded The LA Circus, an award-winning one-ring community circus sponsored by the City of Los Angeles. Tom also worked on several of the largest Music Festivals of the 90s, including the Amnesty Int’l World Tour w/ Peter Gabriel, Sting and Bruce Springsteen, Fiesta Broadway, and the US Festival. As Tom says, “After running a circus for two years, there’s not much that can surprise me. If you can deal with a dozen clowns on a daily basis, everything else is a piece of cake.”
18 years ago, when Tom moved to Prescott, he started the Folk Sessions Radio Show, broadcasting on Prescott Public Radio, part of the Arizona Community Radio Network. He received a Bucky Award for Media in 2013, performs at church halls and folk fests with his wife, Christa, and is the marketing and communications director for the Highlands Center for Natural History.
