Tom Pacheco in the Press:

Folk Music Leeds: Tom Pacheco

This is the man who went off to see Jack Kerouac as a teenager after reading his book "On The Road", and he's never been off the road himself since, writing and singing his own songs for the past thirty years, and passing through Leeds at The Grove .... He has a fan club in Britain and Wayne Stote edits the magazine, which contains articles, news and reviews and comment on Tom's music. Contact Wayne through us if you're interested.

Wayne writes: "He doesn't play many folk clubs so that we were delighted to have him at the Grove for the second successive year. We were sold out. People came from far and wide, Preston, Leicester and Barnsley specially for Tom, and by the time 8.30pm came around the room was buzzing with anticipation. An array of talented singers both regular and occasional visitors whetted our appetites before Tom took the stage to tumultuous applause.Tom is a story teller: from heart-rending pin-drop moments of Angel to the comedy Sci-Fi of Birdseye Heaven we were gived a magical mystery tour of the human condition."

And Sean Ruffel, who would like to follow on the same path as Tom, "You could see it in his eyes before he even played a note!"
