Do you want to hear live music?

Many of us don’t really remember the days of front porch picking and family jam sessions. Earl Scruggs grew up around many musicians that shaped and molded him into the legacy we know today. His skill was not developed overnight; it took gentle molding from the influences of those around him. These days folks doesn’t live next to the mill, walk to work, or spend the evening entertaining the family anymore. So how are we going to develop our musical community? It’s simple: Open Mic Night! If you haven’t had the opportunity to drive by Newt’s in uptown Shelby on a Thursday night and see a smiling bunch of troubadours, make it a point to peek into our world one evening. Our front porch is the right there on the streets of Shelby. It is a blank canvas for musicians and an example of street artistry for the passive observer. A place where you can hear original songs for the first time, or hear familiar songs played with a spirit of unity and fellowship. I don’t mean to get philosophical, but something great is happening and it keeps getting bigger and better. This kid friendly entertainment welcomes all ages; we have had performers from 3 to 82 years old. I want to invite you to come see the magic, please bring your favorite musician or singer with you and encourage them to showcase their talents. The schedule for Open Mic Night is every 2nd and 4th Thursday from 7-10pm. Come enjoy your very own community of ‘front porch pickers.’
