Songs about American life from guitarist Tom Breiding on Wendy’s Porch

On Friday, July 8 at 7pm, Tom Breiding will be on Wendy’s Porch to present  Steeltowns, Coalfields and the Unbroken Circle. With his guitar, banjo and harmonica accompaniment, Breiding delivers original musical stories of life in American towns over the last century.

Tom is a popular draw in the Pittsburgh area music scene and a recording artist who sings his original songs about Pittsburgh steel mills, the West Virginia and Pennsylvania coal mines and points in between. Breiding is currently working on another album and also tours as a member of three different bands and as a solo artist. Country music artist Tom T. Hall praised the artist, calling Breiding “shades of Woody Guthrie”.

This live concert  is a Pennsylvania Humanities Council event. Since 1973, the PHC has provided resources that empower local groups to help their communities explore history, literature, the arts, and the ideas that shape the human experience.

Nolan Painting has generously offered free popcorn and lemonade for all of us on Friday night! And Mr. Breiding’s overnight accomodations are supplied by The Radnor Hotel.

Hope to see you there!
