Tom's 52 Track, double record "The Rose of Roscrae" - A Ballad of the West, is to be released April 14, 2015…with guest artists: Johnny Cash, Leadbelly, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Guy Clark, Dan Penn, Gretchen Peters, Ian Tyson and dozens of others…the reviews are piling in:

"The Rose of Roscrae: A Ballad of the West is the third in a series of extraordinary concept albums Tom Russell has delivered...yet another masterwork. It is a work of rare ambition and rare brilliance that is beautifully and artfully executed...Tom’s performances are riveting throughout the long piece. So, too, are the other singers who take on various roles in the folk opera...There is an embarrassment of riches among the songs Tom composed for The Rose of Roscrae...Mike Regenstreif, Folk Roots"

"Russell’s Roscrae masterpiece, as well as his back catalogue, totally outstrips (so much of) the music by contemporaries that masquerades as (Americana.) He open heartedly understands that historic context and musical tradition are inextricably linked....Approached very much in the panoramic spirit of classical composer Aaron Copland...Celtic blood courses through this writer’s veins, and the sonically colorful melodies and richly poetic images embedded throughout The Rose Of Roscrae are the stuff of hair-raising chills and joyous optic moisture. Arthur Wood, No Depression, April 2015"
