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 over twenty-two 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!

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! 

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


Friday March 16  ~ Irish Balladeer Paul Carroll ~ Paul and Brian ~

8:00 pm, Paul Carroll grew up in Dublin during the ballad boom of the sixties where the pubs were packed with folk singers and ballad
groups. It is there that he found a love for the music and songs that were to be part of his life. He credits his mother for giving him
the gift of song. She was a fine singer in her own right and he remembers fondly the “hooleys” in the house. Paul emigrated to
Australia in the early 70’s but he never strayed very far from the music, singing in the folk clubs of Sydney, Perth and Melbourne.
During his time in Melbourne he was a founding member of the Celtic band, Poteen, who were Australia’s premiere Celtic band, sharing
the stage with icons like Eric Bogle, The Dubliners, The Fury’s and Boys of the Lough.

9:15 pm, The entertaining and enigmatic duo, Paul and Brian, share their music for our second set tonight.

Admission tonight is $8. Doors open at 7:20 pm.
