TOM BEGICH, Wednesday, 10/30, 7:30pm at Redbud Hill

4-8-13-AKFF-Tom-Begich-e1365788973485-340x261The bohemian son of a family steeped in Alaska politics and the product of a life of music and art, Tom Begich writes and performs music and poetry that resonates with the stories and the conflicts of the human condition.

Part of the Alaska music scene in the early 1980’s, Tom dropped out and tuned in to the world of politics and business for a decade before finding his way back to local coffee shops, street corners, and music festivals.  In 2016 Tom was elected to the Alaska State Senate, becoming the first professional musician to be elected to that Legislative body.  He now serves as Minority Leader of the Alaska Senate and continues to perform both his music and poetry throughout the country.

Tom combines an easy picking style with blues rhythms and storytelling skill to create a musical montage that is always interesting to the ear. His music includes a wide-variety of music ranging from acoustic instrumentals to blues and folk rock.

Some Cousin Andy’s regulars have spent time with Tom at The Kerrville Folk Festival and are pleased to welcome him to the Cousin Andy’s stage.  This show will be at Redbud Hill, 411 N. 9th St. in Murphysboro.  Call 618-565-1238 for more info.
