Canal Fulton, OH Open Mic Night

Each Saturday evening (weather permitting) beginning in May and going through August (as of this writing) Canal Fulton, OH comes alive with Open Mic Night! It runs from 7:30-10:00pm and is a free event, brought to the public by Canal Fulton Arts and Entertainment Group. Mike, Open Mic's organizer,

shared that the event will continue through the end of August, "but that's not written in stone".
Perhaps his arm can be twisted to lengthen it by a few weeks. Many, including yours truly, think that is a GREAT idea! 

I attended the event this past Saturday, August 8th, and the experience was refreshing. Musical performers, of various levels, shared their talent. A four-year-old, along with her band The Biancas wooed the crowd with her version of “The ABC Song” and “Twinkle,Twinkle Little Star”. Many genres of music were heard. Some songs written by the performers, themselves. The outdoor venue is located on Canal St., where locally-owned specialty shops remain open to provide food and beverages during the event. There is some outdoor seating (benches and concrete steps) yet, some attendees chose to bring their own lawn chairs as well as snacks. Both are perfectly fine. It was a wonderful way to unwind, enjoy the outdoors, and get a music fix...all at the same time!

Photographer Craig James also attended and took some terrific shots of the participants! You can see some of his work in this post and visit his site: Craig James Photography

These three young men, together The DollyHoppers/The Food Critics, performed four of their songs at Open Mic. A favorite among those in attendance was "White Trash, Redneck Love" (click to listen)

Hopefully, this post has enticed you to come relax and enjoy the sounds of music in Canal Fulton.
