Original Songs /
Fingerstyle Guitar

Fingerstyle Guitar

Fingerstyle guitarists and their music are a Heartistry specialty. Label founder and guitarist, Tom Draughon, wouldn't have it any other way. Tom is a highly trained singer as well, so Heartistry presents the best of BOTH worlds - intricate fingerstyle guitar AND well sung original and traditional songs.
If you like Appalachian Old Time music, we have something for you, too. So, did this music make it up to the Lake Superior region? You bet! Crandon, Wisconsin was settled by folks from Kentucky. Tom is a native of North Carolina (it's in his blood...), and has been characterized by (get this) a lutenist, as being "...a really good banjo player...", and a darned good fiddler, too. So, if you like Old Time music in the style of Red Clay Ramblers or Doc Watson, this site is for you.
Appalachian Old Time / Kids AND Adults

Ancient Ballads

Traditional Child Ballads and original compositions in a style will captivate your interest and take you back to olden days. Tom's philosophy with traditional music is - the older, the better! It's really cool to sing, or listen to, a song that you know somebody sang 500 years ago!
Native American Music
Heartistry Music Welcomes Anakwad (Frank Montano). As well as making and playing native flutes, Anakwad is also a singer / songwriter whose thoughtful compositions relate to the spirituality and real life issues of native americans today.
