Vale Tom Walsh


MITCH’s beloved Patron Tom Walsh, has passed away.

The past and present committee members of Music in the Central Highlands (MITCH) are deeply saddened by the passing of our patron Tom Walsh. Tom has been an inspiring mentor to countless musicians in the Region and beyond. His gentle wisdom and warm demeanour will be sorely missed.

Tom represented our last living link to music from a time that predated television, basked in its Australian sunshine and treasured its roots in Ireland.

Our sympathies go also to Mary and the Walsh family.

Tom has gone, but will never be forgotten.

 The MITCH Committee, past and present.
