Prolific BBC radio presenter and songwriter Tom Robinson has released 15 albums of music and presented shows for all the main BBC radio networks over the course of his thirty-year career.
Tom came to fame in the 1970s with acoustic trio Cafe Society, the Tom Robinson Band (who enjoyed chart success with 2-4-6-8 Motorway and Glad To Be Gay) and Sector 27 before being offered his own show as a BBC radio presenter in the 1980s. He recently won his second gold Sony Academy Radio Award for the groundbreaking NowPlaying@6Music.
Having officially retired from touring in 2002 Tom now only plays a handful of shows a year. This is an extremely rare chance to see him live.
Part of Homegrown, The Met's festival of English folk music.
