Official CD-Release & Concert At K Of C Museum April 25, 2015

With the grand finale of the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War at hand, Tom Callinan, Connecticut's first Official State Troubadour, will be officially releasing his second album of songs related to The War Between The States at the end of April, the month in 1865 that included three pivotal events: Richmond's capitulation; the Confederacy's surrender at Appomattox; and the tragic assassination of President Lincoln.

On April 25 th at 2:00 P.M. Tom will present a concert of songs from and about the Civil War at the Knights Of Columbus Museum in New Haven, an organization and location that developed following the war. James Mullen, a veteran of Connecticut's 9 th Volunteer Infantry Regiment (raised and mustered in New Haven) was one of the founders of the Knights of Columbus. In honor of that connection, for six months this year, the Museum will feature its retrospective exhibit from that terrible part of America's history.

Dressed in the uniform of a Union infantry musician, Tom will include excerpts from his latest recording "The Forlorn Soldier", as well as others from his 2006 CD "Brother Against Brother". He will be self-accompanied on string, wind, and percussion instruments from, or similar to those played during the 19th Century. His informative style, and knack for involving audiences of all ages in his performances will insure that attendees will be both enlightened and entertained during his presentation. Following his concert, Civil War re-enactors will perform a wreath-laying in the Museum's courtyard.
