Published Nov 27, 2012Outfitted with accordion, trumpet, banjo and more, Cape Breton's Tom Fun Orchestra impressed Exclaim! readers with their latest album Earthworm Heart. The album is chock full of jolly tunes that will surely induce the listener's toes to start tapping.
Before headlining the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto earlier this month, The Tom Fun Orchestra joined Exclaim! TV for a session at the Lomography Gallery Store on Queen Street West. There, they performed a toned-down version of "I Am Bleeding Hallelujah" from Earthworm Heart. To find out how a band of seven can strip things down, you will have to watch the video below.
Earthworm Heart is out now on Tom Fun Orchestra's Bandcamp.
