Tom Carey and the Ghost Runners

Saturday, Sep. 07 | 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT)


Tom Carey’s songs are smart and compelling, sometimes surprisingly funny, and have drawn comparisons to John Hiatt, Lyle Lovett, John Prine and Jimmy Buffett. His roadhouse baritone brings to mind “blue-eyed soul” singers like Van Morrison, Gregg Allman and Delbert McClinton.

About the Artists:

For the past 15 years Tom has led Heartache Tonight, one of the most successful Eagles tributes in the U.S. But the desire to play original music never went away. “I’ve been dying to get this band in the studio, and I’ve been writing all along,” he says. Their new recording, Tom Carey & the Ghost Runners, features his Heartache Tonight bandmates Tom O’Brien, John Forrest, Bean Weng, Jim Altenbach and Chris Plasch. “We’ll be playing all the new stuff and some favorites from my first two CDs. I think people will enjoy the new take on some old songs and I’m looking forward to playing the new ones with these great musicians.”
