Tom Thorpe
Born into a musical family, Tom started playing guitar, piano and accordion when he was five years old. He now plays all the traditional instruments found in a bluegrass band and a few that aren't. A multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriter, he was a member of Albany's beloved Irish band, The Galway Blazers, but has also been part of folk, country, and rock and bluegrass groups in New Jersey, Massachusetts, Vermont and Upstate New York. Thorpe has been Dyer Switch Band's manager for the past three years, often seen sitting in with the group on resonator guitar, but will now be adding mandolin, guitar and fiddle to his bag of tricks. He is a proud member of the International Bluegrass Music Association's Leadership Bluegrass Class of 2009 and is active in his local bluegrass associations - the Adirondack Bluegrass League and Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association. Tom and his lovely wife, Karen, reside in Voorheesville, NY.
