In 1994 in Cambridge MA, founding musicians Mark Irwin and Theresa Thompson (also a psychotherapist) planted the seed for Tunefoolery - musicians in mental health recovery who play and practice together, and perform for others. From four musicians and 15 performances in year one, Tunefoolery plays 300 concerts a year, and is over 60 members strong.

We are always looking for new musicians!

“Joining Tunefoolery has been a big boost for my confidence. It’s been a chance to hang out with other musicians. Our talents rise above any kind of disability. I like that.”

Ramblin' Dan, Tunefoolery Musician


We are always looking to perform!

“The increased skills and professionalism make for greater self-esteem and a stronger identity as a competent, artistic, actualized individual with innate gifts to share with the world.”
