Tom Irving -Open Mic Feature 4/15/10

Tom Irving, well known and loved as the Ambassador of Rick’s Music and the entire regional folk music scene, will be the April 15th Feature at Rick’s Open Mic.

Tom’s journey as a folkie began many years ago, but when he decided to learn guitar four years ago he signed up for lessons at Rick’s Music. It wasn’t long before Tom launched his Open Mic career on our very own stage and quickly became a very special member of our Open Mic Family (more like a brother!).

It's with Tom's tireless efforts that we are able to offer our Open Mic and the Saturday Song Circle programs to our local community. We can't thank Tom enough for his enthusiastic support and volunteerism. 

As an entertainer, Tom's come a long way in just four years!  Through the many music friendships he’s made, he was introduced to the tipple, then the uke and now he's just lovin' his new Washburn mandolin. 

Tom Irving is a "Man of Many Frets," but you won’t fret when you enjoy the warmth of his personality as he shares his talent and love of music with his Open Mic Family on Thursday, April 15th!

File your taxes then come to Rick’s and chill out with the Aruba-lovin’ Tom Irving!

  3. Tom Irving equals,
    Sharing, fam, singer/songwriter, stage personna for those of us blessed to call him friend, he then becomes your biggest advocate in life!! Tom has blessed many a stage over his particularly short performing years but over these few years has transformed himself into a "working entity music maker and performer" I encourage any and all to come to the warm surrounding this coming Thursday to see and hear this Minstrel of our times at Ricks Music World!! I will of course throw in some shameless self promotion for anyone reading this to join us whenever possible at Roslindale Open Mike but you may even enjoy seeing Tom Irving on Yet another community stage as he Features for us at on:
    9-27-10. Now don't tell me your busy that night...I am giving you plenty of notice!!! Tom you make me proud to call you a dear friend and please never stop learning more instruments weekly! I will try and keep up with you but know full well, I could never keep up!!!

    All the best , Neal Braverman - Roslindale Open Mike

  4. We agree! Tom's the best friend and musical supporter you could ever hope for. Genuine enthusiasm and encouragement naturally flows from his soul. We love ya, Tom!

  5. Tom has been a great fan and supporter of the Javawocky Coffeehouse. Thanks to Tom and his "fam" we had our largest crowd 3/27 to see him open for Kim and Reggie Harris.

    Go, Tom!
