On Friday August 11, Our Feature at the Meeting House Stage will be Jerry Wile!
Jerry Wile is an accomplished banjo and guitar player who has performed regularly at festivals and bluegrass venues in the New England area for over 35 years. During that time Jerry has played with several bluegrass bands and is currently a member of the bands Granite Grass and Hurricane Hill.
A long-time music instructor at The Minor Chord in Littleton, Massachusetts, Jerry teaches and plays bluegrass guitar and the three-finger banjo style developed and popularized by Earl Scruggs.
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 email@example.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.
