BFMS Concert Series
Sunday, May 21, 2017 - 7:00 PM at Lovely Lane Church Sanctuary
Opening act - Lulu's Fate
We are pleased to announce a great concert featuring Tom Lewis.
If you like songs and stories of the sea, new and old, you'll certainly enjoy Tom's singing and his stories .
Tom is a 24-year veteran of Her Majesty's Royal Naval diesel submarines; although now he's comfortably located on dry land. His songs cover a wide range of nautical topics, from life on board H.M. ships, through the loneliness and lure of the sea, to traditional shanties and classic nautical poetry, set to his own, and others' melodies.
Whether singing acapella or accompanying himself with button accordion or ukulele, you will truly enjoy Tom’s performance!There is a lot of excitement as we look forward to Tom returning to the beautiful sanctuary of Lovely Lane after an absence of many years.
Lulu's Fate performs a mix of music from the Appalachian, southern string band and country blues traditions, as well as early swing, gospel, original tunes and covers ranging from Hank Williams to Tom Waits. Comprised of Tom Espinola on mandolin & guitar, Kristen Jones on cello and singer Kara Bolling, the trio blends virtuosic instrumentals with lush 3-part vocal harmonies to create new interpretations of traditional tunes. Lulu's Fate is based in the Washington DC metro area and has performed at the Takoma Park Folk Festival, Washington Folk Festival, Kingman Island Bluegrass & Folk Festival, Institute of Musical Traditions and numerous coffeehouses & house concerts throughout the area.
