FENCE Family Concerts presents Tom Fisch Sept. 19

Published 3:38 pm Tuesday, September 14, 2010

FENCE Family Concerts will begin its fall season with an appearance by singer and songwriter Tom Fisch on Sunday, September 19, at 4 p.m. in the Great Room at FENCE.

A native of Albany, New York, Fisch began playing the guitar when he was 10 years old and went on to perform throughout the northeast before creating his own music publishing company in 1991 in Nashville, where his songs were recorded by a number of nationally known country bands, including the Oak Ridge Boys.

Fisch struck out on his own as a performer and moved to western North Carolina to take advantage of the strong acoustic tradition of the mountains. Fisch will be performing a number of his own songs as well as traditional favorites from the folk and country repertoire.

FENCE Family Concerts are offered free of charge with the support of the Kirby Endowment Fund at the Polk County Community Foundation.
