On Friday, September 11, Bob Pope will be our feature performer
Bob Pope, from Nashua, New Hampshire, has been a regular fixture for many years in the New England bluegrass scene. A long-time member of two bludgrass groups, The Monadnock Bluegrass Band and the Pine Hill Boy, Bob lives in Nashua. A guitarist for almost 50 year, as a solo performer Bob plays folk, bluegrass, and flaenco style acoustic guitar. Bob is often accompanied by his daughter, Curran Pope.
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.
Typically each performer will either play 3 songs or 15 minutes (whichever comes first). If we have a large number of performers sign up, the slots will be reduced to 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.
