About

A veteran of the blues and folk circuit, with over 20 years of live gigging experience, Tom Dale is a familiar face on the Cornish music scene.

Originally part of the four-piece blues outfit Sugarland Slim, Tom achieved early success as the band quickly pricked up the ears of the UK blues scene. In 2005, Tom moved to Penzance as a street musician with his beaten-up National Triolian, and was quickly embraced and put to work by the vibrant local music scene.

Immersing himself in old-time traditional music, Tom has developed a mastery of slide guitar, fingerpicking and open tunings on his National Resonator, clawhammer banjo, fiddle and pre-war tongue-blocked harmonica, along with a powerful and honest singing style that draws heavily on his blues, gospel and mountain music influences. With a voracious appetite for traditional songs and styles, he brings a deep understanding of the history of the music he plays to every performance.

A gifted songwriter, Tom has performed and recorded many of his own compositions, and with this experience and understanding of song craft, brings his own unique flavour to his vast repertoire of traditional songs.
