Happenings at the Charlotte Grange Hall

After several months of very successful open mic events, the Charlotte Grange Hall will not only continue to host Open Mic events but will be adding, starting in April, Showcase Open Mic nights once a month on Friday evenings.

These Friday evening events will showcase three musicians who have performed at one or more Open Mic events and will be able to play a 30-minute set. Like the Open Mic events, these will also start at 6:30 p.m. See dates for all scheduled below. To sign up for an Open Mic event or ask about the Showcase Open Mic, contact Mike Walker at mjwalker@gmavt.net. All of the Open Mic and Showcase events are free to attend. Donations to help defray the cost of heat and electricity for the Grange Hall welcomed.

In addition, March 9 will see a Mardi Gras party at the Grange Hall with music provided by the Silver Leviathan Band along with food. This event, held on a Saturday afternoon from 4 -6 p.m. will be a great way to break up the long winter in Vermont and usher in the start of the Lenten season. Suggested donation for Mardi Gras party is $25 for families, $10 individual, with a $5 discount if you bring a dish to share!

You will also want to save the date June 21, as there will be a “A Midsummer Waltz”.

Open Mic Events: Tuesday, March 19, Tuesday, April 16, Tuesday, May 21

Showcase Mic Events:  Friday, April 12, Friday, May 3 and Friday, June 7.

And a big “thank you” to Preston’s Excavating and Ward Preston for his donation in keeping our Grange parking lot clear of snow this winter so we can have these music events!

If you love music and it helps to restore your soul. Mark your calendars!
