On Friday February 20th, 2015 the Black Walnut will return with an all Open Stage evening. Bring your guitars, banjos, voices, acoustic instruments of all sorts or just your eyes and ears. We love our audience, because they love our performers and because “If there ain’t no audience there ain’t no show”. The doors will open and sign-up for the open stage will start at 7:30 pm. Remember when you sign up you get to play/sing two songs in a set of 10 minutes or less and you need to be ready to start playing when your turn starts so you won’t lose any of your 10 minutes.
The details are outlined on our https://blackwalnut.wordpress.com/about/ page. The parking is free at the back of the MIll-Courtland Community Centre and admission is still $3 at the door. the facility is accessible, alcohol, smoke and peanut free and every show is different. If you don’t come, you’ll miss it.
