TCAN Open Mic Featured Artist

The Center for the Arts, 15 Summer St. , Natick, MA

The Folk/Acoustic Open Mic night at TCAN has been a tradition since its inception in 1997. TCAN Folk/Acoustic Open Mic night isn't about individuals so much as it is about a feeling: Hallways filled with artists tuning vintage guitars, changing strings of steel and quietly rehearsing fragments of lyrical poetry; nervous first-timers hitting their stride on a high note or a magical turn of phrase; seasoned veterans rediscovering their music by sharing new songs and old favorites with appreciative audiences of supportive peers.

All musicians and spoken word performers are invited to participate in this bi-weekly event. Come early to sign-in as a performer, or to get a great seat for one of the most successful and entertaining open mic nights on the East coast. Each Folk/Acoustic Open Mic night features a variety of new and experienced performers, followed by concert presentations by the featured artist of the evening. Come and see why TCAN has become the gathering spot to see and meet local artists and nationally recognized touring performers.

Events: Folk Open Mic events are once or twice a month on a Tuesday night. Admission is free for active TCAN members, $5 for non-members.

Registration: Open to all ages. Participants sign up on arrival, and each perform one song (original or cover) in order. Time permitting, the rotation repeats until the end of the evening.

A thirty minute performance by a guest performer is scheduled at each Folk Open Mic event. These features are selected in advance by the Program Director.

Additional Information: Signup begins at 7:30pm and performances begin at 8:00pm. Please do not arrive prior to 7:00pm without prior approval of the Program Director. The TCAN Piano is available for performers to use. Musicians may bring CDs, postcards, and gig cards for distribution.
