Next Black Walnut Open Stage Is Friday February 16, 2018

Posted by on Feb 7, 2018 | 0 comments

I am falling behind with my Blog maintenance but this is the important thing: On Friday February 16, 2018 at 8pm we will be back at the Mill Courtland Community Centre for our monthly Black Walnut Acoustic Open Stage.  We don’t have a featured performer this month so there will be time for lots of Open Stage performances.

Bring your guitars, accordions, voices, acoustic instruments of all sorts or just your eyes and ears and make yourself feel at home. Do not feel shy because you have not played for us before.  The doors will open and sign-up for the open stage will start at 7:30 pm. Remember when you sign up you get to play/sing two songs in a set of 10 minutes or less and you need to be ready to start playing when your turn starts so you won’t lose any of your 10 minutes.
Our  Code of Conduct  and other details are outlined on our About Page.  The parking is free at the back of the Mill-Courtland Community Centre and admission is still $3 at the door. the facility is wheelchair accessible, alcohol, smoke and peanut free and every show is different. If you don’t come, you’ll miss it. The next open stage will be March 16th.

“Led by Canadian Markus Michelucci, Sound Refuge is an eclectic mix of performers who come together to play engaging, thoughtful folk music from the calm and reassuring to the passionate and cerebral. They create an alluring world of instrumentation with powerful lead moments, harmonies and hopeful, inspiring lyrics. Often likened to Cat Stevens, James Taylor and Passenger.

Markus Michelucci & Sound Refuge perform at festivals & events throughout the UK such as Barnival, Greenwich Tall Ships Festival, Rochester Sweeps Festival, the Minehead Musicians Festival and more. Markus has performed live on BBC Radio, Shoreditch Radio and regularly on the streets of London at Borough Market, Southbank Centre and London Farmers Markets. Having toured France last summer, they’ll be touring Germany later this year to support the new release. The duo also performed for Sofar Sounds in Edinburgh early this year! Watch the video here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ep6jhyvdcGg
