Music: Open Mic Night hosted by Jamie Ness
April 16, 2019
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Come on down for the Duluth Folk School’s monthly Open Mic Night, hosted by Duluth musician, Jamie Ness!
For performers, this is a great opportunity to play in front of people, to try out a new song, or to try performing at a different level!
For audience members, this is a great opportunity to support our community of musicians, and to see up and coming new talent before the word gets out!
How to sign up for Open Mic Night:
Show up between 5:30 PM and 6:00 PM sharp, to put your name on the list!
What to expect: A supportive and fun atmosphere to celebrate everyone’s contributions and to welcome new performers.
Who can participate? Pretty much everyone: emerging singer songwriters, solo guitarists, vocalists of all kinds, acoustic groups, Irish fiddlers, jazz trios, or…?
How long is the show? The show starts at 6:00 pm and usually ends by 8:00 pm, depending on the number of performers who sign up. There is no intermission.

Acoustic or electric? This is a folk school, so our preference is for acoustic or lightly amped.
