A loving musician and artist, Tom Baust, needs others to share their love financially as he battles for his life against Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

Tom's historical farmhouse and botanical garden in Holland, PA, he shared with the Bucks County and larger Philadelphia community for the last 11 years, through a free History and Arts Event.

As Tom is sidelined as a musician, his personal and hospital bills continue to add up.  Please give generously to someone who has given of his time, talent and kindness generously over decades.

"What a treat to sit under the big shady oak tree and enjoy the voices and instruments!  And the house tour was icing on the cake." -- Blessings from Joan Marie, Holland, PA

CD: Tom Baust--In The Spotlight

A collection of high-end unique solo arrangements of show tunes & standards.

The CD showcases Tom's artistry as arranger, producer, as well as performer on piano, synthesizer, and bari-tenor voice. Tom is the consummate singer: he conveys lyrics with the artistry of Sinatra and sings a silky-smooth melody with the gift of Mel Torme!

"About 3 years ago I attended a cabaret with you at piano and Melissa K. singing at Society Hill Playhouse.  After the show I bought one of your CDs and have enjoyed it many times . . . I have to tell you that I think you are fabulous!  The CD gets better and better (meaning that I enjoy it more and more).  I would love to experience your shows if you have any coming up. Best Wishes" -- Rob Cox

"We all enjoyed ourselves a lot on Saturday. You go to a lot of trouble to entertain all of us.  Next year we will make sure we get more coming. Glad you sang and played again, you are a pleasure to listen to.  Have  a wonderful year and we'll see you next June." -- Kathy

I'm sure you have worked long and hard to be able to perform as you do. You are someone who has the gift, and had the patience and determination to develop it. I'm fortunate to be in your audience." -- Brian Daly

History: the Rightly Murders of 1893

The 1806 Farmhouse was the site of a double hatchet murder of an elderly couple, Samuel and Leanah Rightly, a year after Lizzie Borden's similar crime of 1892. Arrested was drifter Wallace Burt, who killed the couple after having been hired to mow the lawn of the cemetery outside the farmhouse, and having been paid only 75 cents and not the dollar he said he was promised. Burt hid out at first in Newtown, sleeping in the lumber yard, then was captured in Morrisville alone in the woods, and tried in Doylestown in 1894. Click Here for more information about the case.
