Tom Brough brings a crowd to Tune Up the Parks

by Sylene Argent

Windsor musician Tom Brough enjoyed bringing his infusion of many different genres of music to the Arts, Culture, and Tourism (ACT) Committee’s Tune Up the Parks concert series last Wednesday.


The evening concert took place in Essex Centre’s Heritage Gardens Park.

  “I play everything from contemporary country to rock,” he said. “I just like to play.”

  Some of his musical influences include Detroit Rock ‘n Roller, Bob Seger. Brough also likes listening to outlaw country and has enjoyed the way artists are taking classic tunes and converting them into coffeehouse covers.

  Brough has played in this summer music series several times since it was implemented a few years back, and he has thoroughly enjoyed participating.

  “It has been great. It is really peaceful and relaxing to play [in the music series]. Everyone seems to enjoy it.”

  Brough’s music can be found online at or on his Youtube channel, tombroughmusic.  

  The Essex Centre portion of the Tune Up the Parks sessions is scheduled to continue on Wednesday, August 22 with Leamington musician, Justin Latam, who infuses blues, rock, and folk into his tunes. This musician is known to play covers and originals in his sets.

  Tune Up the Parks continues until August 30 with Monday evening concerts at Colchester Harbour Park and on Wednesday evenings at Heritage Gardens Park in Essex Centre. Additional events have been added in Harrow and McGregor for this year’s series.


The performances, which could be subject to change or cancellation, begin at 7:00 p.m.
