On Friday January 12, Our Feature at the Meeting House Stage will be Tom Horsky!
Boston singer and fingerstyle guitarist Tom Horsky grew up in southern California where he was influenced by folks such as Ry Cooder, Joe Pass, and Steve Man. Horsky plays finger-style blues originals, mixed in with classics from the country blues, ragtime and folk traditions.
Tom has released several self-produced CDs over the past decade, including 2007’s “Blues for the Muse,” an eclectic collection of blues, folk, and originals that was recorded with a three piece rhythm section. The CD “Instrumental Guitar” showcases Tom’s Blues, Ragime, and New Age compositions, and Tom’s lateset CD release, Someone to Love,” features his family band, The Mustachios. “Someone to Love” is available at https://www.cdbaby.com/cd/themustachios1
How it works. Signup begins at 6:30 pm and the music begins at 7:00 pm. Performers are encouraged to sign up for an open mike slot. Sign-up is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Typically each open mike slot is 2 songs or 10 minutes, whichever comes first. Performers can reserve a slot up to a week ahead (no earlier) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thinking about performing? Everybody is welcomed and encouraged to share their talents, but like all things in life, there are Rules. Each month we will have a feature performer who will get a longer, 30-minute slot. Check out our Calendar to see who will be featured at our coffeehouse in the coming months.
Equipment: We have a small PA, five microphones, and two instrument cables that provide sound reinforcement.
Dates: Usually held on the second Friday of each month. Consult the Calendar page to make sure that the open mike is being held during any particular month. Occasionally we may need to move the date for a given month, depending on availability of the venue. For example, in October we’ll always be on the third Friday, and in July we are typically outdoors at the Rindge Historical Society on the afternoon of the second Saturday of the month. There is no Meeting House Stage during the month of December.
