We are excited to announce that Tom & Barb have been chosen as one of twelve finalists in a songwriting contest held by the Great River Folk Festival, just outside of La Crosse, WI on Sunday, August 26, 2012.

Judging will be done on the basis of the following criteria:

               Songwriting (composition, lyrics, melody)

               Instrumental performance

We were the only duo chosen amongst the other contest winners, and we were the only ones from Milwaukee, WI!


In addition to ourselves, here is a lineup of the other contest winners: Roger Nelson (Oronoco, MN); Roger Wendover (LaCrosse, WI); Kaia Fowler (Fort Atkinson, WI); Jason Reuter (Onalaska, WI); Edward Stanton Lemar III (Viroqua, WI); Scott Wilcox (Tomah, WI); Rick Thompson (LaCrescent, MN); Ardy Ross (Onalaska, WI); Steve Marking (Onalaska, WI); Tom Walter (LaCrosse, WI); Franke Salvaggio (LaCrosse, WI).

New CD Fragile

The award-winning, Milwaukee-based singer-songwriter duo, Tom and Barb Webber, celebrate the release of their sixth CD, “Fragile.” This latest collection of original songs represents a musical pilgrimage through a labyrinth of hauntingly beautiful explorations of the human condition. The listener is led to explore personal but universally recognizable stories of love and loss, challenge, pain and suffering, as well as songs expressing exuberant joy, redemption and celebration. Each of Tom and Barb’s songs, reveal a glint of the promise of grace.
