Welcome

Brian Dickens

Brian Dickens

Brian Dickens writes and performs songs that reflect his hometown of Winchendon, Massachusetts. For over a decade, Brian has been traveling near and far, playing and singing songs that uniquely encapsulate his life in Winchendon and beyond. His fine voice is well suited for the wide-ranging melodies of his compositions, and his skillful accompaniment on guitar adds color and dimension to his music.

Brian’s most recent release, “The Good Head Space EP” is a brief collection of songs exploring the value of friendship while vagrant, as well as how important it can be when one returns home. Brian Dickens’s music can be heard at www.bdix.bandcamp.com.

How it works: Doors open at 6:30 pm and 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 consists of 2 songs or 10 minutes, whichever comes first.

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, four microphones, and two direct inputs for instruments that provide sound reinforcement. A nice old upright piano is available for use as well.

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 first Saturday.
