Our Next Open Stage Will Be Friday, May 19th

Posted by on May 10, 2017 | 0 comments

On Friday May 19th, 2017 we will be back at the Mill Courtland Community Centre for our monthly Open Stage. There will be no feature set this month so that means lots of time for Open Stage performers.
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.
The 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 June 16th.
