Local songwriter returns to Valley for free show Monday

YOUNGSTOWN — Tom Manche will return to his hometown next week to perform at the downtown restaurant owned by deported businessman Amer “Al” Adi Othman, for whom he has written a song.

The Nashville-based singer-songwriter and music producer – a Youngstown native – will give a free show at 7 p.m. Monday at the Circle Hookah and Bar, 116 W. Federal St.

Othman was deported to Jordan in January after nearly 40 years in this country. His story gained national attention and prompted Manche to write the song “Welcome Home.”

Manche is a 1969 Chaney High School graduate who also attended Youngstown State University.
