The Songs & Stories of Thomas Gabriel, Growing Up CASH

“He sounds strikingly familiar to his famous grandfather, especially when he’s singing one of Johnny Cash’s big hits like “Ring Of Fire”, but Thomas Gabriel has a style all his own. And it’s taken him almost 45 years to find it!” (Forbes Magazine)

We’re very excited to be bringing this show to Petersfield – Thomas’s musical heritage is second to none and that is evident for all to hear in his outstanding and individual style of songwriting – and of course that voice is instantly recognisable! This will sell out so grab your tickets quickly!

“Thomas Gabriel takes you through an autobiography of a very turbulent, incarcerated, addiction-riddled life with an eerie connectivity and continuation of the Johnny Cash story…” (Saving Country Music).

Thomas had a front row seat to one of the greatest and most influential musicians of the twentieth century, growing up in the ‘fishbowl of famous’! Thomas spent a lot of time with his grandfather. “My dad wasn’t around a lot when I was growing up, so Johnny was both a grandpa and a father figure to me. He was who I went to when I needed help or when something was wrong.” It wasn’t long before a love of music and creating it, became a passion for Thomas. “Growing up, he would show me chords, listen to music I’d written, and ask me about the songs I wrote. I would watch his live shows and if I had a question about how he did something, he’d show me. He was always real supportive”.

“I love performing live. When I sing one of my songs, I put everything that went into creating it into the performance. If I am singing one of Johnny’s songs, then I channel how I felt when I heard him do it.”
