      Tom Russell

      Ballymaloe Grainstore is delighted to welcome the legendary Tom Russell on one of his rare visits to Ireland. With forty albums under his musical belt, he is a revered, prolific and highly original singer/songwriter. Russell’s masterpiece ‘folk opera’ The Rose of Roscrae was named the best folk album of 2015 by Mojo Magazine and lauded as ‘maybe the most important Americana record of all time’ by UK Folk. The album was included in the top ten list of dozens of publications including the Los Angeles Times. It tells the story of an Irish boy who travelled from Tipperary to the American west in the 1880s, and mixes Irish influences with cowboy ballads, gospel, Mexican and French-Canadian songs. Russell calls the epic album ‘Les Miserables in cowboy hats.’ It will be a night not to be missed by those who truly appreciate folk and Americana music – and unique talent.
