Open mic performers play 2 numbers each and our ‘Featured Artist’ plays for approx 30/40 mins. Depending on numbers attending, we continue with more open mic performers. Sessions attract top musicians as well as new artists from across West Yorkshire.
A small desk & PA system is used for guitars and mics and most musicians come for “a decent sound” and “an appreciative, supportive audience”. It’s free to play, sing or just enjoy with everyone else.
