Free Family Concert with Tom Fisch
To describe Tom’s music is a bit like describing a favorite recipe---the first ingredient is tasteful acoustic guitar playing. Second, add Tom’s rich vocal style. Sprinkle in a dash of humor. Combine with the heart and soul of an eclectic mix of songs from the great American songbook in the folk/country style, and you’ve cooked up some enjoyable entertainment.” This program is made possible by the Kirby Endowment at the Polk County Community Foundation.
