The Expresso Yourself Coffeehouse is an opportunity for spoken word artists to share their poetry, stories, and songs. It is held the last Saturday of every month at 7pm at First Parish Unitarian Universalist, Medfield, MA.

We serve a delightful array of pastries as refreshments; some are freshly baked by volunteers. Come and join in the fun, either to enjoy as an audience member or to participate. Open mic readers have 6 minutes to share. Teens and adults welcome.
Tom Smith is an award-winning songwriter and a folk veteran of over thirty-five years with 4 CDs. He performs at festivals, coffeehouses, schools, and concerts throughout the Northeast to audiences large and small, young and old. 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.
“Tom Smith is a man who writes songs that seem like they’ve always been there. There are very few songwriters working today that I would call folksingers, but I would call Tom Smith a true folksinger.” - WUMB-FM Boston radio DJ, Dave Palmeter
“Tom Smith will make you laugh and cry (maybe even in the same song) – a very captivating songwriter and performer.” - Barbara Kessler
