Arising From the Troubles
Tommy Sands' concert program is based on his most recent album, Arising from the Troubles, which was released in the U.K. in 2011 and in the U.S. in 2013...
Tommy Sands is involved in peace concerts, lectures, assembly programs for middle school and high school, and university workshop performances where he shares his songs and their message of tolerance and peace for his country and for peoples around the world. In addition to the message, Tommy’s education program includes wonderful music from the concert band: himself on guitar and vocals, Moya on fiddle, whistle, bodhran and vocals, and Fionan on banjo and mandolin. The presentation’s content speaks to two themes that are integrated in single program. The first is “the Irish Bardic tradition.” Tommy is known for his rich knowledge of traditional Irish music and it’s history. As a modern Bard, he carries on the tradition and brings the old into the new. Tommy’s second theme is of course using song, music and art to create dialogue about peaceful solutions to situations of cultural conflict.
