Rock 'n' Roll at the Library


Sunday February 10, 2013
2:00 PM
Who said libraries are always quiet? The library is offering a series this spring featuring an author, a film and a set of performers tied to the history and ongoing influence that is rock ‘n’ roll. The second program in the Rock 'n' Roll series is A Musical Tribute to the Great Les Paul and Mary Ford featuring Tom Doyle and Sandy Cory.

Tom Doyle and Sandy Cory will perform and talk about the influence of guitarist Les Paul and vocalist/musician Mary Ford. They will perform some of the songs the duo did together as well as talk about the innovations they had in electric guitars, sound recording, and the many musicians who came after them.

Photo of Tom and SandyTom Doyle’s inventive mind has made him experiment, design, and tinker with guitars. As early as the 1960’s, Tom began developing his own pickups and he also began making modifications for other guitarists and doing their repairs. He started his own Luthier business in 1970, has been so for over 40 years and currently runs his own guitar building school in New Jersey. He has customized, repaired, and modified guitars for such artists as George Benson, Sting, Bucky Pizzarelli, Al Caiola, Al Dimeola, Tony Mottola, Jimmy Page, and Les Paul. Tom now plays his own handmade “Doyle Guitar” featuring his own low impedance pickups.


Sandy Cory is a great talent and began doing gigs with Tom soon after he first saw her perform. Since the passing of Les Paul, she and Tom were the opening act at the Les Paul room in the NYC Iridium on Monday nights. They perform their own songs as well as those of Les Paul and Mary Ford. They have also received rave reviews of their performances at the Chet Atkins Convention (CAAS) in Nashville. Tom and Sandy combine beautiful instrumentation of guitar, vocals, flute and drums, which they perform regularly at various clubs, private parties, and benefits around the country.

This program is supported through funding from the Friends of the Morristown & Morris Township Library.
