The late Thom Bresh was a singer, songwriter, recording artist, TV personality and one of the world's greatest thumbpickers. His style, although uniquely his own, was inspired by Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed, and - most of all - by his father, the great Merle Travis.
Thom's solo performances and recordings have received consistent praise. He has performed with such artists as Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, John Prine, the Everly Brothers and scores of others. He has appeared on Nashville Now, Austin City Limits, The Merv Griffin Show, and as the host of the Canadian TV show Nashville Swing. Thom's instructional DVD, "The Real Merle Travis Guitar," has long been one of Homespun's most popular titles. Sadly, Thom left us on May 23, 2022.
