April 21st, Tom Smith
Tom Smith’s songs are in turns humorous, touching, thought provoking, and inspiring. Deeply rooted in the old-school folk tradition, his timeless stories are told with a voice that is honest and sincere with melodies that you will remember forever. In the words of noted singer/songwriter Barbara Kessler, “Tom Smith will make you laugh and cry (maybe even in the same song) – a very captivating songwriter and performer.” Tom grew up in rural Pennsylvania in a family where music was part of the fabric of everyday life. As a young man living at the epicenter of the folk-quake that was Cambridge, MA in the 1960’s, Tom solidified what has become a life-long love of self-made music. Now a folk veteran of over thirty-five years, Tom performs at festivals, coffeehouses, schools, and concerts throughout the Northeastern United States to audiences large and small, young and old. Tom’s monthly folk music blog, “The Kitchen Musician” can be viewed at .
News ….Still looking for the right folks…
After the June 16th coffee house Mike and Stephen are stepping back from the coordinating effort. They are looking for some fresh talent to keep this wonderful coffee house going. It has been 10 years. Yes the Mason Coffee House, ” The Living Room” has been setting up a stage or local musicians and poets, to share their talents with enthusiastic supporters for ten years. It has, and still is, so much fun to share this time together with friends. We have seen so many great performances here on our stage. The talent and friendship you all bring each month is the best. If you, or anyone you know is interested in coordinating a coffee house please contact us.

Thanks again to everyone
Stephen and Mike
