Thursday nights are Open Stage Night from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm. $5 admission. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Order of play determined by order of arrival. One song per rotation.
Many wonderful musicians have shared their music on the Fiddler's Dream stage over the years. Our open stage began over twenty-one years ago! Our Open Mic Night is an Open Stage Night, as we are completely acoustic, so there aren't any mics...just a whole lot of good music, and an appreciative audience! One song rotation, playlist in order of arrival, doors open about 6:30 pm, first rotation starts at 7:00 pm. A fun evening of sharing music no matter if you choose to play or simply listen and enjoy! There's a variety of styles and instruments, spoken word and storytelling, so come out and join us - hope we get to see you Thursday! And please share with your friends! Admission by $5 donation at the door. Open Stage Protocol

Saturday December 9 ~ Wayward Maggie and Jamie Anderson ~
8:00 pm, Singer-songwriter-parking lot attendant Jamie Anderson has played her unique original songs in hundreds of venues in four countries, including forty-seven U.S. states and three Canadian provinces. She’s folk without the Birkenstocks, country without the big hair, pop without the meat dress, and jazz without the weird chords. Her ten recordings include the 2013 release Dare. Jamie’s music has been featured on Good Morning America, the Dr. Demento radio show, NPR’s Car Talk, and stations all over the world. She loves being a musician, so she doesn’t really park cars, but her mama said she should have something to fall back on.
Wayward Maggie is a quirky, fun, hard-to-categorize duo, whose members are Jess Hawk Oakenstar and Kate DeLaPointe. Their musical presentation/persona comes to rest somewhere between mournfully dark and rockingly/rollickingly comedic, meaning their audiences always enjoy an entertainment roller coaster ride.
Admission tonight is $8. Doors open at 7:15 pm.
Tuesday December 12 ~ Appalachian Folk Duo, Tina & Her Pony ~
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm, Indie Appalachian Folk Duo Tina & Her Pony met in Asheville, N.C. in 2009. Tina Collins (tenor ukulele, guitar, vocals) and Quetzal Jordan (cello, guitar, vocals) spent two years holed up in the high desert mountain town of Taos, New Mexico making music and friends, and becoming one of the iconic artist colony’s most beloved performing acts.
Tina and Her Pony released their full length, self-titled debut album in March 2012. The album was mixed and mastered in Oakland, Calif. with Myles Boisen (The Tigerlilies; Kronos Quartet) and features trumpeter Chris Grady (also featured on Tom Waits’ Mule Variations). After an 18 month album release tour spanning the United States and Canada, they established a new home base in Asheville, NC and began recording their forthcoming album, "Champion" at Echo Mountain Recording studio. "Champion" draws inspiration from and meditates on dreams, the subconscious, and death. The album will be released November 3rd, 2017, and will be available at the show.
Admission tonight is $6 at the door. Doors open at 7:00 pm, or perhaps a bit sooner.
