TG McEwan – Promises
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Promises is McEwan's seventh album. From Edinburgh, Tom grew up in Maryland and developed a Celtic Americana approach to 12-string, blues harp and songwriting. He stormed the 1980s college circuit. After playing the Bluebird open mic in Nashville, he launched the weekly Edinburgh Songwriters Showcase, before fronting the frenzied Captain Swing Ceilidh Band. Neurosurgery curtailed music for years, but, after winning Lets Get Lyrical, he produced a book of 200 songs, re-released his back catalogue, and returned to gigging. And now, Promises, which explores the commitments we all make and sometimes break. Welcome back, Tom!
