Tom loves to sing some good ole blues & country songs over his acoustic guitar whereas Blew blows…in his “Mississippi Saxophones”(harmonicas)!

The three or two of us will play gospel songs with Don as a unique and rare harmonica player, carrying and incarnating a longtime and disappearing harmonica tradition.  Please come share this unique moment announcing a wonderful Christmas!  Tickets:  $10.
