On Friday October 20, Our Feature at the Meeting House Stage will be Fred Fowler!

Fred Fowler

Fred Fowler

Fred Fowler is a master of classic country music and a real crowd favorite at the Meeting House Stage. A huge fan of old country and bluegrass, Fred has played fiddle with a number of bands in the past including Late Night Radio.

Primarily accompanying himself on guitar when performing solo, Fred plays regularly at area senior centers and jams, and builds his sets from an extensive collection of classic country and bluegrass tunes. Fred’s distinctive voice melds perfectly with his guitar, and he’s promising to break out his fiddle for a few tunes as well. I’m hoping to hear some yodeling, too!

How it works. Signup  begins at 6:30 pm and the music begins at 7:00 pm. Performers are encouraged to sign up for an open mike slot. Sign-up is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Typically each open mike slot is 2 songs or 10 minutes, whichever comes first. Performers can reserve a slot up to a week ahead (no earlier) by emailing dave@meetinghousestage.com.

Thinking about performing? Everybody is welcomed and encouraged to share their talents, but like all things in life, there are Rules. Each month we will have a feature performer who will get a longer, 30-minute slot. Check out our Calendar to see who will be featured at our coffeehouse in the coming months.

Equipment: We have a small PA, five microphones, and two instrument cables that provide sound reinforcement.

Dates: Usually held on the second Friday of each month. Consult the Calendar page to make sure that the open mike is being held during any particular month. Occasionally we may need to move the date for a given month, depending on availability of the venue. For example, in October we’ll always be on the third Friday, and in July we are typically outdoors at the Rindge Historical Society on the afternoon of the second Saturday of the month. There is no Meeting House Stage during the month of December.
