For many years, musician Tom Cawcutt Sr. of Wrenshall has shared his gift of music with area residents by presenting a series of very special Christmas concerts to benefit area charities.
This year, Cawcutt is planning to continue that tradition with a holiday concert set for 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 10, at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 12th Street and Doddridge, Cloquet.
The public is invited to attend the festive annual event, with a portion of the proceeds once again going to needy families of the area.
“I’ll be performing Christmas music as well as some of the old standards,” said Cawcutt. “I’d like to invite everyone to come and sit back, relax, and enjoy the music of the season.”
A special feature of this year’s concert will be the release of Cawcutt’s latest Christmas CD, “It’s Christmas.” The CD will be available at the concert in time for Christmas giving or your own enjoyment during the holiday season.
Tickets to the concert will be sold at the door at a cost of $8 for adults, $5 for students, and children under age 12 are free.
Cawcutt has been a well-established singer-songwriter-performer for a long time. This year he added yet another feather to his estimable cap – his original “jingle” was selected as the official theme song of Bentleyville, Nathan Bentley’s annual Christmas lighting extravaganza now held at Duluth’s Bayfront Park.
Cawcutt said he will perform his prize-winning Bentleyville jingle for the public at his upcoming Christmas concert.
In November 2009, Cawcutt also auditioned for NBC’s reality series “America’s Got Talent.”
