Open Mike – featured artist Steve Walkerno reservations required
Feature artist: Steve Walker
Our award-winning Open Mike features a grab bag of regional talent, with the occasional surprise guest. You might hear guitar pickers and singer-songwriters, pianists, fiddlers, comedians, poets, and storytellers. A set is often 3 songs/15 minutes; with larger attendance on any given night, it may be adjusted to 2 songs/10 minutes.
Godfrey’s Open Mike takes place on the first and third, and occasional fifth Sundays of the month. We start with a scrabble tile grab at 7:00 to determine performance order. Late arrivals are added to the end of the list.
Featured Artists are chosen by our artistic committee. Like all of Godfrey’s other events, our Open Mike is staffed completely by volunteers, and everyone is here to listen. It’s a community of artists who share the love of music.
One of the persistent joys of Godfrey Daniels is the vibrant creative community that has supported our Open Mike over 40 years. The musicians that take to our stage on a Sunday night feel the rich heritage left by so many songwriters, poets and troubadours from the past, and, in turn, raise their own artistic bar. That legacy is a powerful driving force to bring out our best songs, or test-drive some new material in a safe, caring space.
