In The Pie Tin Cupboard

Tom Irwin is the fourth generation to live in his Victorian home on Prairie Creek outside of Springfield, Illinois. Tom found a diary squirreled away in a cupboard in the family home. The diary was written by a teenage boy, Harry Glen Ludlam in 1893. That diary has inspired Tom’s latest CD, "Sangamon Songs."
