Leading up to a holiday weekend at an Open Mic is always a little perplexing. You never know what kind of attendance you are going to have. Memorial Day weekend is typically a little slow because many of our Open Mic players are away at the Kerrville Folk Festival. This year proved that out again. Slow nights are welcome though at the Ashford Arms. We only had a handful of musicians in the house but we all had a good time and got a lot of chances to play.
The evening started off with Brandon Jantzen.
Josh Wager took the stage next.
Chris Greene was back this week. It's always good to see him on the Ashford stage.
Patty and Sam (no picture) joined in the fun and sang one A Capella number. Patty and Sam are old friends of Drummer Dave's and we thank him for bringing them to the Ashford Arms for the first time.
Buddy and Sherri Allen showed up to play for us. We don't see them often enough and it's always a pleasure to have them on the Ramblin' Mic Stage.
A night at the Ashford Arms Open Mic would hardly be complete without the fine fiddle work by Keith Craik and Drummer Dave Dempsey keeping time on djembe.
Many thanks to all of the musicains and music fans that keep live music alive through their support of Open Mics.
