Old-Time Open Mike at Godfrey's to benefit the MCOTMF
2014 Event was on Saturday, June 21 at Godfrey Daniels, Bethlehem
2015 Benefit was on June 27 at the Ice House, Bethlehem
Would you like a little 'appetizer' to whet your whistle for the main event?
Fortunately, Godfrey Daniels Folk Club in Bethlehem gives us the opportunity to satisfy that urge by letting us have a mini-old-time-festival in their lovely venue. About a month before the festival, the founders of the festival, some of the teachers and enthusiasts for the festival will gather to play and sing old time tunes for each other in an open mic.
This event is a fundraiser for the festival, so please come prepared to make a $10 donation (more if you are feeling generous). Please let us know if you would like to perform or if you are planning to dedicate yourself to being audience for those who do play. Both roles are equally important, but we need a head count of the performers so we can fit everyone in!
You can sign up as a performer in advance through the contact page of this web site, by contacting us through FaceBook or calling Meadowood Music (610-916-1285).
