TOM ACTON: SINGER/SONGWRITER/STORYTELLER


My name is Tom Acton and it's my pleasure to

Born in Dublin, I grew up with mainstream
Irish folk artists like Christy Moore.
My Irish background has made me what I am:
a Bard in the widest sense of the word.

Please explore this site and see what I have
to offer you.
Contact me for bookings or orders.

ENJOY!

Irish Music Magazine. Nov. 2010
'Down The Irish Gravel Road'
'The fourteen tracks on this album come exclusively from Tom Acton's own pen, and as such is an excellellent showcase for his considerable musical talent and songwriting ability, this album is well worth the effort of seeking out'

Froots Magazine. UK. 2009
'Down The Irish Gravel Road'
"Tom Acton's music has a warm naturalness that is eternally appetizing"

The Living Tradition. Folk Magazine Scotland. Sept 2011
'Down The Irish Gravel Road'.
"One of Tom Acton's strongest suits, is his ability to convey in spacious imagery and intuitive language his keen rapport with Irish sensibility in his songs.
All in all, it is impossible to resist the gentle charm in Tom's music, and anyone who appreciates listening to fine songwriting craft, should find this album well worth tracking down"
