Saranac Lake BluSeed Studios will begin a new season of Open Minded Mic Nights (OMMN) with a fall event.
Seasoned and new performers are invited to share their voice and ideas in a professional acoustic setting at the studios, 24 Cedar Street, from 7:30 to 10 p.m.
“We’ve seen a wide range of acts on our stage, everything from whole bands, a capella, poetry readings, story telling, and acoustic performances,” BluSeed Office Coordinator Michelle Hannon said. “You really never know what your going to get from one night to the other.”
The OMMN is an opportunity for artists to show their work to the art community in a judgement free zone where anything goes.
“It’s just a really laid back and relaxed environment,” Hannon said. “It’s a great place for first time performers. It’s not like a bar, everyone is very supportive of the performers.”
During OMMN, Hannon said bands and collaborative groups have formed.
“It’s great for musicians. People come and strike up conversations and sometimes they’ll end up playing together that night or they’ll return to the next OMMN together with a song they’ve prepared.”
Artist and performer sign up is limited to twelve and begins at 7 p.m. Four spaces are reserved for newcomers until 7:15 p.m.
The next OMMN will be held Jan. 30. Hannon said a March OMMN will be announced later.
