Ronald Carlson

Ronald Carson has been a fixture in the Central Massachusetts folk scene for over thirty years.

Playing guitar, octave-mandolin, banjos and an occasional ukulele, his music includes influences from the British Isles, Ireland, and traditional American folk music. In his songs and tunes you’ll hear bits of such artists as Doc Watson, Andy Irvine, and other roots musicians from both sides of the pond.

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. Each performer’s slot usually consists of 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 first or second Saturday. There is no Meeting House Stage during the month of December.
