Tom Pacheco; Rare Boston Appearance
Normally when doing this publicity task, you just find the performers' bio stuff, and cut and paste it in here. For me (Dean), this is such an enormous personal honor, to have Tom Pacheco come to Boston, that I have to chime in myself. Tom's "Indian Prayer" is a song for the ages that I've covered every time we celebrated native peoples and embraced their struggles at The Community Church of Boston. A mutual friend from Woodstock, NY, where Tom lives nearby, sent me Tom's double CD best of compilation. It was a delicious revelation, to discover that Tom Pacheco is one of the most prolific songwriter and wordsmith you can find. His vast original repertoire is a feast of story, song, celebration, commemoration, protest, love, anger, solidarity and yes, even dark, dark angst and intrigue, the gamut of the human experience. Check out Tom's wealth of music available online as well as on his 20+ wonderful CDs. We open our season with a rare and delightful treat for you, TOM PACHECO!
"Writing that Pacheco is a local treasure is an understatement of giant proportions."
The Daily Freeman
His songs have been covered by Jefferson Starship, the Band, Rick Danko, Richie Havens, Scott Petito and Leslie Ritter, John Hall and dozens of European artists, many becoming number one hits in England and Norway. His albums have sold well in Europe. One became platinum in the mid 90's. He played folk rock in Greenwich Village, NY in the lat 60's and alternative country in Austin Texas in the early 80's. He walked out on the Nashville songwriting factories and spent 10 years in Dublin Ireland recording and touring extensively in Europe. He now lives in Woodstock, NY and tours both America and Europe. He is admired by critics, fellow performers and perceptive music lovers who have bought the imported copies of many of his albums. Andy Hardin, Tom Russell's long time guitarist, called him "the best solo performer he's ever seen."
