History Mondays with a little Fiddle Music (Tom Guay)Monday, September 19: Tunes & Tales of the Golden Age of Annapolis, Tom Guay   5:30-7:30

Tunes & Tales of life during the Golden Age of Annapolis, the balls, the theater, the songs, the social season, which abruptly ended, forever, with the burning of the Peggy Stewart in 1774.

Tom Guay is a musicioner and young novelist who escaped Warshington (sic) DC, in 1999 with his wife, Karen, daughter, Elise, and son, Brendan, to enjoy life in Annapolis and the Land of Pleasant Living.

Tom plays fiddle, dulcimer and guitar in The Eastport Oyster Boys and is a veteran of several Irish folk groups, including the ShannonTide and Paddy Goes West.  With the Oyster Boys, Tom has written such literary wonders as “Hot Crabs, Cold Beer,” and “Pull, Pull, Pull,” an ode to the annual Tug-o-War between Eastport and Annapolis.

Tom is also a student of history, particularly colonial history. It’s no surprise then to see why he’s a docent at the Charles Carroll House here in Annapolis where he spins tales of the 18th century during the Golden Age of Annapolis, which ended abruptly with the burning of the Peggy Stewart in 1774.

All of these experiences turn up in Tom’s Tunes and Tales sessions on the Woodwind’s Monday evening history cruises. Ask him why about the “r” is in our first president’s name …

On fine fair days with a soft breeze, Tom can be found sailing coastal waters in his Tartan 27, The Salty Blue. When not performing or working on his novels, Tom works as communications director for the Severn River Association.
