Tom Griffith and Martha Trachtenberg - Friday, Nov. 10, 2017 - 8:00 p.m.


movie tickets admit one Tom Griffith - Martha Trachtenberg.jpg Tom Griffith is a singer/songwriter who began his career placing songs with Peer Southern Music and Famous Music Publishing. Tom first pursued a career in advertising, writing and producing countless TV and Radio commercials. Tom left advertising in the nineties and returned to his first love, songwriting. You Got Something on the Side, 100 Real Good Reasons to Sing the Blues and That’s My Version of a Good Idea, which he cowrote with Martha Trachtenberg and Toby Walker. His production credits also include It’s About Time by Martha Trachtenberg, which was featured in the New York Times and Newsday and is played on acoustic-music oriented radio stations throughout the country.

Martha Trachtenberg is a prolific singer-songwriter-guitarist. She was a founding member of The Buffalo Gals, the first all-woman bluegrass band.  Since then, she has built a career as a jingle singer in NYC, and has had her songs recorded by such artists as Tony Trishka and Skyline, Missy Raines, Jim Hurst, Kathy Chiavola and Dede Wyland. She performs solo as well as with her husband, musician and producer Tom Griffith, and was part of the group The Folk Goddesses.

It's rare to have one singer-songwriter at the talent level of this musical couple.  To have the two of them on stage at the same time is not to be missed.
