Along with his performance with Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, the three-time Juno winning musician Tom Wilson will give a literary recital from his book Beautiful Scars with pianist Jesse O’Brien.

With a rare gift for storytelling and an astonishing story to tell, Tom writes with unflinching honesty and extraordinary compassion about his search for the truth. It’s a story about scars, about the ones that hurt us, and the ones that make us who we are.

He has written for and recorded songs with Sarah McLachlan, City and Colour, Jason Isbell, Colin James, Lucinda Williams, Billy Ray Cyrus, Mavis Staples and The Rankin Family, to name a few
