Tom Russell

September 13th
8pm (Doors open at 7:30pm)
Tom Russell came originally from Los Angeles and lived for many years in El Paso. He sketched both cities through the dual lenses of Orson Welles's movie camera and a dying relationship in the masterpiece "Touch of Evil." Tom Russell, says Ark volunteer George Allen, "can tell a story about anything." He's written vivid historical songs, ambitious portraits of love gone wrong, big Nashville hits, slices of barroom gloom, anthems of social commentary, profound religious statements ("Blue Wing"), a career-making song about an epic cockfight … you name it! Says the San Francisco Chronicle: "Tom Russell is the last wandering Beat…a prolific and venerable artist writing the best songs of his career." Tom Russell songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Doug Sahm, Nanci Griffith, k.d. lang, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Ian Tyson, Iris DeMent, Joe Ely, and a hundred others. Tom returns to Michigan with not one but two new albums, a set of Ian & Sylvia songs and a brand new album of originals, "Folk Hotel."
