- Godfrey Daniels Open Mic
Godfrey Daniels Open Mic
One of the persistent joys of Godfrey Daniels is the vibrant creative community that has supported our Open Mike over 40 years. The musicians that take to our humble stage on a Sunday night feel the rich heritage left by so many songwriters, poets and troubadours from the past, and, in turn, raise their own artistic bar.
That legacy is a powerful driving force to bring out our best songs, or test-drive some new material in a safe, caring space. I know we all delight in witnessing the tremendous growth of performance skills, songwriting chops and stage cool of all of our friends. Godfrey’s Open Mike is a tremendously rare and beautiful event in our competitive and segmented culture.
So, let’s continue to celebrate this musical gem in our own folk community: Grab a scrabble tile and play a little music yourself. See you on Sunday! – Dave Fry
