Tom is a storyteller, song collector, song leader, and unapologetic banjo picker. He performs for audiences of all ages around the Northwest and leads group singing at political and community events. As Hank Cramer says, "Tom is a gregarious 'sing-along' performer much in the style of Pete Seeger." Tom is a retired elementary school teacher now living on Orcas Island. He first attended PSGW in 1984, and has served on the board of directors and as one of the camp coordinators.
