UNION — The Union Public Library is planning a program featuring musicians Tom Doyle and Sandy Cory at the Union Public Library on Tuesday, July 31 at 7 p.m. The public is invited to this admission-free program but seating is limited.
The very talented couple will perform a tribute concert to Les Paul and Mary Ford featuring guitar, flute, percussion and vocals. The husband and wife duo of Les Paul and Mary Ford could be found at the top of the pop music charts throughout the 1950s. Their biggest hits included ‘Tennessee Waltz,” “How High the Moon,” “Lady of Spain,” and “I’m Sitting On Top of the World.”
Tom Doyle has been a luthier for over 40 years and currently runs his own guitar building school in New Jersey. He has customized, repaired, and modified guitars for such artists as George Benson, Sting, Bucky Pizzarelli, Al Caiola, Al Dimeola, Tony Mottola, Jummy Page, and Les Paul.
Through the years, as fate would have it, a student guitarist and singer, Sandy Cory, came into the picture. Tom saw Sandy’s great talent and began to do gigs and shows with Sandy as part of the act. This slowly started to be perfected and developed into a fantastic duo. Since the death of Les Paul, Tom and Sandy are now the opening act at the Les Paul Room in the NYC Iridium on Monday nights for the Les Paul Tribute. Currently, Tom performs and records with Sandy in the New York area.
Those wishing to attend the concert should make their reservations early. To RSVP, call the library at 1-908-851-5452. The Union Public Library is located at 1980 Morris Avenue.
