UU Coffeehouse presents Tom Ghent

Again this May, Tom Ghent will perform at the UU Coffeehouse Saturday, May 19. Ghent’s songs have been recorded by Kris Kristofferson, Gene Watson, Bobby Bare, Mama Cass, Bobby Goldsboro, Michael Settle, Rita Coolidge, Charlie Louvin, and dozens of others.

His classic, “Whiskey Whiskey” is considered a standard, and has been cut by a long list of performers in a variety of styles.

He’s played lead guitar for Mickey Newbury, appeared as a background vocalist on Joan Baez’s “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” and Steve Goodman’s “City Of New Orleans.” His expertise in the studio is well known and respected among his industry peers. His performances have taken him from the coffeehouses of the Greenwich Village folk scene, to country honky tonks, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Big Sur Folk Festival, Monterey Pop Festival, the Willie Nelson Picnic, the Hollywood Bowl, and numerous radio and television appearances. Ghent also sang the title song on the soundtrack album for the Mick Jagger movie, “Ned Kelly”, a soundtrack that also featured Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, and Jagger himself.

There is a suggested donation. The coffeehouse is held at 21 Fairground Rd, Springfield, Vt. All are welcome. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; music starts at 7 p.m. This is a family-friendly evening of music and fun. Delicious snacks and beverages will be available for purchase.
