Get out your Folk Diaries Folkies
Thursday September 4th will be the Open Mic birthday party at Papa Joe's Ashville
Yes the Open Mic has been running for three years on the 4th September. It seems a long time ago that we started what has turned out to be a wonderful experience. We have seen change and adversity, but like all good folkies we pulled through. Ending up at just about the best place anyone could ask for. For those of you who have not experienced Papa Joe's we have our own room, stage, lighting, PA, and a wonderful young server called CJ who looks after us well. Dave Rainey is sound man extraordinaire and a bunch of regulars who are the mainstay of the Open Mic with an influx of new comers who never cease to amaze us with their abilities.
As usual for our parties there will be a Monty Python sketch of some sort, competitions, hats, streamers, silly songs and of course music.
Sign Up From 6pm with a 7pm start, be there for fun and frolics plus good music.
