Ballad of a Songman
Tommy Sands' new multi-media show

In collaboration with Irish playwright Martin Lynch, Tommy Sands has created a new critically acclaimed multi-media event combining song, story, poetry, humor, video, and imagery that is both entertaining and enlightening.

Based on Tommy’s 2005 autobiography, The Songman, Tommy’s one-man show, Ballad of a Songman, is a personal account of his upbringing in Northern Ireland, of the Troubles and eventual peace accords there, his time with the Sands Family Band, his friendships and encounters with musicians, writers, and political leaders, his campaigns for peace and harmony in Ireland and throughout the world, and his humanitarian work. 

No hyperbole needed. The reviews say it best …

Paul Keating, The Irish Voice: “A tour de force.” “Jump at the chance to see Ballad of a Songman.”

Colin O'Neill, Newry Democrat (County Down, Northern Ireland): “Held us spellbound.”

Daniel Neely, The Irish Echo: “Spectacular.” “Simply brilliant.” “The audience left the performance absolutely buzzing.” “Absolutely recommended.”
