Tom Hall – Musical Life, Musical Community celebrates the way Tom Hall’s folk music and sea chantey sessions sparked a large and thankful Portsmouth musical community.  With his Press Room Friday night session, running some thirty years,Tom entertained and inspired singers, songwriters, and musical groups. 

The short film (17 min.) outlines that history with interviews and musical interludes – many in the Press Room of the ‘old days.’ 
This special screening. during the twentieth annual PMFF, will be preceded and followed by stories and songs from a number of those who knew Tom’s ‘Musical Community’ magic in those early days.
