Open Folk'n is Back!
Over the years the Bendigo Folk Club has run a very occasional open mic evening, that we like to call Open Folk'n.
Some of our volunteers have raised with us the problem that Bendigo no longer has a regular open mic session for people wanting an opportunity to strut their music on a friendly stage. Therefore, it was only natural that we should bring Open Folk'n back and turn it in to a regular event.
This will be an acoustic based event, with performers getting to sing and play into our large mic.
So the 2nd Friday evening of every month, will see the stage at the Old Church on the Hill opened up to performers who wish to secure a spot on our stage, in front of our big mic.
As with all Bendigo Folk Club events at the Old Church, the Bendigo Sustainability Group will be providing the 'Friday Night Drinks" bar service.
Commencing Friday 14 October at 6:30pm, at the Old Church on the Hill on the corner of Russell and Harkness Streets, Quarry Hill.
