Tom Power is the host of q & q the music (formerly the host of Mornings and Deep Roots). He is from the beautiful city St. John's, Newfoundland where he grew up going to see local bands and learning to sing local songs. Tom started out playing folk music in the grimy bars of St. John's but decided to go from going to bed at 5am to waking up at 5am by taking on a daily national morning show. When he's not playing music on the radio, you might also find him touring the world playing folk festivals as part of his Newfoundland folk music band The Dardanelles, or playing guitar for Irish pub sessions in Toronto that keep him up past his bedtime. Tom loves bluegrass, fishcakes, the internet, and bad jokes. He lives in Toronto and appreciates jams both of the music and preserve variety.
