May is originally from western Nebraska and has called Toronto, Boston, St. Louis, Omaha, and now the Pacific Northwest home. On twelve and six string guitars, he accompanies his baritone voice with intricate stylings not often heard in folk music. Stories, humor, and occasionally even the Irish pennywhistle introduce the songs featured in his concerts.
Tom May has performed in every state in the Union, as well as Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany and Belgium. In 1997 and 1998, Tom did a series of concerts throughout Alaska in honor of the Klondike Gold Rush centennial.
33 years as a professional musician has led Tom May to describe the "true wealth of the music business--the friends that you made and the folks you are lucky enough to have a chance to play for." He has lived a life performing, writing, and promoting this music that he truly believes in, "music that makes a difference."
The people who hear Tom are captivated by his unforgettable voice, evocative melodies, and a warmth that gives his performance a degree of musicality and professionalism unsurpassed in acoustic music.
