OPEN MIC NIGHT at the Crimson Frog Coffeehouse
I have sad news to share - as of September 7th, 2013, the
Crimson Frog Coffeehouse is no longer open for business. I am
grateful to Mary Beth and company for providing such a great home for
the Open Mic over the years - it will be missed.
Open Mic at the Frog was always a fun and diverse
collection of musicians, from children getting on stage for the first
time to experienced players warming up for the weekend's gigs, to more
senior folk finally finding the time to pursue their musical passion.
From blue grass to 60's folk to contemporary pop to electronics and
post-rock soundscapes, there was something for everyone. In it's heyday
3-4 years ago, the whole cafe would be packed with audience members
standing along the back and sides when all the seats were filled.
Fitting in so many performers kept me on my toes, but that's the way I
liked it. And that's the way I like to remember it.
Thanks again to everyone for your support, to the
audience, performers, and the folks at the Crimson Frog, including the
Hooper family. I part with the last line of the last song that I sang
to close each night -
" Closing time, every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end "....
