“Try it Out” Open Mic – POSTPONED

Nestled deep in the heart of the West End here’s a time to get cozy on a chilly evening and meet your neighbours in a creative environment! The Try It Out Coffeehouse is a free, monthly Open Mic held in the lovely Victorian parlour at
Barclay Manor. Sign up is at 7 pm and it is first come first serve. Everyone gets 10 – 15 minutes (approximately three songs) depending on the size of the group. This is a time to share music, stories, poems, comedy, interpretive dance, etc or just listen! Open to all ages and abilities. As a friendly and supportive environment where everyone can “try out” ideas and projects, the Try it Out Open Mic has seen first time performers as young as five and seasoned performers who are – well – ageless! Lots of laughs, fun and even some inspiring moments. Come to listen or share. FREE!
