Thomas Gabriel

Saturday, October 12 at 7:30PM

Tickets: $40 - $45 plus tax

Singer-songwriter Thomas Gabriel brings his country roots-influenced, genre-straddling music to the stage. The grandson of Johnny Cash spent his childhood touring with his iconic grandparents Johnny and June Carter Cash and released his debut album “Long Way Home” in 2018 – an effort he credits largely to fate. His addictions led to a lengthy arrest record, and multiple years in prison. The solitude of the experience provoked him to explore songwriting again, a journey that he had begun in his youth. His songs tell stories that resonate with audiences across the world as he spreads awareness for those battling addiction like him through his real, raw music. Thomas Gabriel’s musical talent and passion creates personal and compelling performances, making his concerts a must-see experience.
