The Back Home Tour
A performance by Tom Rasely is a unique experience of instrumental music: a relaxing fingerstyle that blends elements of classical, bossa, folk, and pop. Along with original songs, fresh arrangements of familiar and traditional folk songs, classical favorites, and Christmas carols (in season), Tom engages his listeners with the unique audienceparticipation composition.; plus the rare audience drum solo. It’s beautiful, melodic music that “sends the listener into the acoustic comfort zone.”
