Meet Tom Townsley – 50 Musicians In 50 Days

Photo: Tom Townsley

We’ve had guitar players, bass players, drummers, singers and keyboard players, but as the first blues guy on the show for the 50 Musicians series, Tom Townsley gets the word out about a branch of the music scene that quite literally birthed all of the others that we all hear and see anywhere. The planets didn’t align, so we didn’t get to hear him play his harmonica on-air this time but as the head of the MV Blues Society he had no problem representing his brethren and whetting our appetite for more of what he has to offer. Check out our conversation as we caught him before his teaching day at MVCC this morning.
