Open Mic Night

September 18, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Weston Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

We invite you to perform or just come to listen to acoustic music and spoken word at the Weston Public Library Refreshments will be provided starting at 6:30pm followed by performances at 7:00pm. Please sign up at least two days before the event so we know how much food we need and who will be performing. We would welcome $5 per person at the door to help defray the cost of running this event.

Email open-mic@westonaic.org if you have questions or need additional information.

This Open Mic Night is intended to be an inclusive, regularly scheduled event that forges connections between musicians, singers, poets, comedians, storytellers and an enthusiastic audience. Our goal is to foster creativity and build a community where participants have an opportunity to try out new material in a supportive and open environment. We expect to attract people of various ages and experience levels with different musical and poetic tastes and styles.
