The legend that is Tom Russell makes a welcome return Glasgow in the summer.

Singer songwriter, painter, essayist – Tom Russell has recorded thirty five highly acclaimed records, & published five books: 120 Songs of Tom Russell; Tough Company – Letters with Charles Bukowski; Blue Horse Red Desert: The Art of Tom Russell; Bloodsport a crime novel published by Aschehoug, Norway; and And Then I Wrote: The Songwriter Speaks, with Sylvia Tyson.

Tom Russell songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Doug Sahm, Nanci Griffith, KD Lang, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Ian Tyson, Iris DeMent, Joe Ely, and a hundred others.

Tom’s latest release, “October in the Railroad Earth” was released last year with some great reviews.

Whether you look at, listen to, or read Russell’s creations, it’s always a fascinating expedition to far-flung places, slightly skewed yet true-to-life adventures based on the reality that exists between his ears.
No Depression

This one raises the bar even higher…there’s not a dud track here. This one should be in every self-respecting country devotee’s collection. 5 Stars.
