Tom Kastle is a singer, songwriter, actor, and sailor who has performed throughout the US, Canada, Europe, and New Zealand. He has one foot in the modern singer/songwriter world and the other planted in the traditional maritime realm where he is a shanty and ballad singer and a tall ship captain. He is a co-director of the Chicago Maritime Festival, a faculty member of the Old Town School of Folk Music, and the Narrator (with occasional singing roles) for the Candid Concert Opera Company. Tom hosted a short documentary about the Battle of Lake Erie that was nominated for an Emmy Award and, recently, was featured in Fermat’s Last Theater’s production of “Miss Julie” and played “Marco” in Frozen Stage Films’ production of “My Father Has a Choice” directed by Francisco Torres. When ashore, he lives in a 19th century log cottage in Madison, Wisconsin.
