Stanley-Whitman House is delighted to once again host the extraordinarily talented Tom Freund for an immersive evening showcasing his latest album, “The Year I Spent In Space.” This event, marking Tom’s third appearance at our venue, promises to build upon his previous performances to offer a deeply personal and musically rich experience for our audience.
Co-produced with Sejo Navajas, known for his work with Vintage Trouble and Weezer, “The Year I Spent In Space” is a testament to musical collaboration. The album features notable artists like Oliver Kraus on strings (collaborator with Sia, Dave Matthews, and Adele), Wally Ingram on drums (Sheryl Crow), and Chris Joyner on keyboards (Jason Mraz, Natalie Merchant). Tom Freund’s versatility shines through as he sings all vocals and plays piano, bass, and guitar.
Throughout the evening, attendees will be treated to a diverse range of tracks from the album. This includes the soul-stirring Graham Parker cover “Disney’s America,” and a new version of “Fallen Angel” from Freund’s earlier work with The Silos. Audiences will also enjoy tracks like “Rebound,” “Things I Said,” “Show On The Road,” and “Happy Uke,” showcasing Tom’s wide-ranging musical prowess.
For those wishing to experience this unique and intimate event, tickets are priced at $25. With seating limited to just 40 guests, advance registration is highly recommended to secure your attendance. We cannot guarantee ticket availability at the door, so early booking is advised. The doors will open at 6:30 pm, with the performance set to begin promptly at 7:00 pm, and the show is expected to run for approximately 90 minutes, which may include an intermission.
This event is more than just a concert; it’s an intimate gathering where music, storytelling, and the shared human experience converge. Whether you’re a long-time fan of Tom Freund or newly discovering his music, this evening promises to be a memorable journey through the emotional landscapes he creates with his songs.
Join us at Stanley-Whitman House for an evening that celebrates not only the artistry of Tom Freund but also the collaborative spirit that defines his latest album. It’s a unique opportunity for music enthusiasts, story lovers, and admirers of finely crafted songs to come together and enjoy an evening of exceptional music and storytelling. We look forward to welcoming you to this special event and thank you for your support and interest in our musical offerings.
Stanley-Whitman House’s Music in the Tavern Series presents artists and shows differently than a club show- instead our house concert is more up close and personal. All of the artifice is stripped away. No stage, no dressing rooms, no barrier between the performer and the audience. The SWH Music in the Tavern series is more like being one-step-closer to the way music was intended- an artist traveling from town to town, telling stories and making friends. Come check this out!
