I don't have an accurate date of birth, the one given is an estimate.

Proposed deletion[edit]

I see that someone proposed Tom Lewis for deletion as being "not notable." I'm not sure it is kosher for me to remove the tag since I created the article, but I would argue that Mr. Lewis is notable. I cite you to the following in WP:MUSIC, all of which are true of Mr. Lewis, and any one of which would render him "notable":

  • Has released two or more albums on a major label or one of the more important indie labels (i.e. an independent label with a history of more than a few years and a roster of performers, many of which are notable). Borealis Recordings.

See also the qualifications for "performers outside of mass media traditions":

  • Has composed a number of melodies, tunes or standards used in a notable genre, or tradition or school within a notable genre. The notable genre being "folk music"-- specifically "maritime folk music" and "Canadian folk music." Notable songs include those listed in the article. I should add that the "Midnight Special" radio show is a nationally-syndicated radio show dedicated to folk music, which has been broadcasting since the '50s.
  • Is frequently covered in publications devoted to a notable sub-culture. Various folk music publications including Dirty Linen.
