Thomas McCallum has spent the past few years travelling the countryside, a jack of all trades, writing songs as the trees flash by. He has been a camp cook, seminarian, worked in downtown Fort McMurray (before hitchhiking home), helped with the hay, picked blueberries, netted fish, and currently works with people experiencing homelessness as a church music director in downtown Toronto. McCallum has shared the stage with a plethora of inspiring musicians as tin whistler or with supporting vocals and guitar. An erstwhile resident of rural Nova Scotia, McCallum currently hangs his hat in Toronto. Each year he returns to the community where his family has lived for over 200 years to host the Six Mile Brook Folk Festival. He released “Crocus Song” in 2014, and, in 2021, his first full length album, “Many a Long Hour.”
