Christchurch Folk Music Club
Open Mic Night
We provide an outlet for local acoustic performers – singers, songwriters & poets all welcome. We encourage all levels – novice or expert – to hone performance skills in front of a sympathetic audience.
Everything is provided – microphones, stage, lighting, leads, music stands – plus a dedicated sound tech who will work with you to make you sound amazing!
If you have specific requests please talk to him before the event starts. We are a listening audience that focuses respectfully on the performers and lots of encouragement.
Perform material you know – we don’t expect perfection but you’ll always come across better if you really know your stuff. However, if you are a regular performer at our open mics we challenge you to bring new material to share.
Further develop your repertoire whilst offering the audience variety.
