Singer, songwriter Walt Richardson serves as the host for this popular series that began in February 2009. Performers represent diverse segments of the local population, all age groups and varying experience levels.
Musicians must provide their own instruments or recorded music. Microphones and amplifiers are provided. Performers sign up beginning at 5:45 p.m. at TCA; that determines the performance order. (You can see the sign-up board on the left side of the photo, above.) Each performer may present two songs. There is no charge for musicians to participate. If your performance involves something other than music or singing, contact the organizers to make sure it will be appropriate for this open mic event.
Each year a few of the Walk-In Wednesday performers are selected to participate in the Songwriters' Showcase with professional musicians and regional headliners.
Walk-In Wednesdays affords local musicians with the opportunity to gain experience performing in front of live audiences while sharing their musical talents with the public.
