A Beautiful Night for an Open Mic

A musical performance from the Merchant's House September Open Mic in the Garden.

A musical performance from the Merchant's House September Open Mic in the Garden.

Last night, I hosted the Merchant's House Museum's second Open Mic in the Garden, and it was an overwhelming success. We had poetry readings, group singing, guitar playing, and plenty of drama (on stage, of course). The weather held and the wine was excellent, and the House's new garden lights provided the perfect ambient glow.

I'm also proud to announce: we've decided to make this an ongoing monthly series! Dates are still to be determined, but follow the Merchant's House on Facebook or Twitter (or keep checking back here) for more information. 

Open Mic Nite in a Historic Garden

This Thursday, I'll be hosting an open mic at the Merchant's House Museum. Come join in the fun and perform five minutes of your best work. 

Our August Open Mic Nite was such a success, we’re doing it again. In the 19th century, literary salons gathered great thinkers, artists, and writers under one roof for a night of socialization and “improving conversation.” In that same spirit, the Merchant’s House is celebrating the works of today’s new writers, performance artists, and musicians with an Open Mic Nite in the Garden. Come share your work or simply enjoy. Refreshments will be served.

If you’d like to perform, please bring no more than 5 minutes of material. A sign-up sheet will be available upon entry.

Thursday, September 24, 2015. 6:30–8:30 p.m. Merchant's House Museum (29 East Fourth Street).

Admission $10, Students & Seniors $5, FREE for Members. Reservations are not necessary.
