Thursday nights are Open Stage Night from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm.  $5 admission. Doors open at 6:00 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 in 1996! 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!

We’ve made a few changes in the New Year, hoping to improve the experience for our performers and our audience! Doors open at 6:00 pm, and we start playing at 6:30 pm. If you arrive by 6:30 pm, you will be in the first rotation. If you arrive after 6:30 pm, you will be added to the list under the red line, and play in the second round / rotation. We do a one-song rotation and a time limit of no more than 4 minutes per turn. Stick around, everybody plays! 

Play your turn - there are no substitutions or giving your turn to another performer. Give the performer their turn: unless you are invited to play with the performer, please don’t play-along with your instrument. Join the audience and listen! And please don’t play music outside, except to tune your instrument or quietly warm up a bit. Since we are all acoustic, sound does carry inside! 

We discourage the use of cell phones in the performance area.  Please turn them off or set to "vibrate".  Please do not audio or video record a performer without their permission.  Additional information is here.

Admission is $5. Thank you for having fun with us!

Saturday October 13  ~ Far From Home Concert Evening ~

8:00 pm, Spend the night with the amazing and talented folks of Far From Home! Far From Home, the husband and wife duo of Tim (Papa Dill) and Amy (Mama Pepper) Shafer, bringing years and histories of musical talent together, from voice to strings, influenced by Renaissance, Celtic and geek culture. And, with both being huge fans of history and mythology it's also pretty much guaranteed that you will learn at least one fun thing while at their show! Tim and Amy often invite their amazing and talented friends to come join them in playing glorious music! Clove (Stacia), a dear loved one, has a beautiful Soprano voice and a snarky wit; she is a great complement to the family and is eagerly learning a few other instruments. Sister Uni (Stephanie) with her singing, quick wit and Fiddling to rival her sister’s (Pepper) is fun to have visit. And their sultry cousin Tarragon (Kayla) might even show up to help spice up the night.  

Admission tonight is $8. Doors open at 7:15 pm.
