Welcome

Jerry Wile Returns to be Our Feature on December 12 at the Meeting House Stage!

In December, Meeting House Stage is excited to be bringing Jerry Wile back for a return engagement. If you saw him perform in June of 2013, you know what a treat you’ll be in for. If you missed that show, make sure you don’t miss this one! Jerry 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 as a member of several bluegrass bands and is currently a member of the bands Granite Grass and Hurricane Hill. Jerry is also an accomplished solo performer and a top-notch songwriter.

A long-time music instructor at The Minor Chord in Littleton, Massachusetts, Jerry teaches and plays bluegrass guitar, as well as the three-finger banjo style developed and popularized by Earl Scruggs.

Coffee, tea, and an ever-changing variety of wonderful home-made food is available.

How it works: Doors open at 6:30 pm and music begins at 7:00 pm.  Performers are encouraged to sign up for one of the three-song (or 15-minute) slots. Sign-up is on a first-come, first-serve basis. If there are a large number of open mike performers, slots will be reduced to two songs (or 10 minutes).

Thinking about performing? Everybody is welcomed and encouraged to share their talents, but like all things in life, there are Rules. Most months we will schedule a feature performer for a longer, 40-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.
