Musician Bill Toms releases 'A Troubadour's Journey' film

| Thursday, Dec. 9, 2010

Bill Toms might not be the best-known musician in Pittsburgh, but he does have a global following. The Scott-based musician frequently tours Europe, and Saturday night at Frankie & Georgie's 4 Wood Grill (formerly PD's Pub) in Squirrel Hill, he'll release "A Troubadour's Journey."

The film, shot during Toms' 2008 Italian tour, chronicles the musican's life on the road and the evolution of the filmmaker Jane Marino , a former U.N. worker who was inspired by the music to overcome a debilitating disease and follow her passion to a new career path.

The documentary features Toms, his band Hard Rain, and sax maestro Phil Brontz wowing Italian audiences with their heartfelt, roots-based rock 'n' roll.

The music starts at 10 p.m., with Toms and Hard Rain performing. Copies of "A Troubadour's Journey" will be available for $7. Admission is $7.
