What we're about

At The Folk Project Open Stage, acoustic musicians perform for welcoming and supportive audiences. Unlike most open mics, which are held in noisy bars and restaurants, The Open Stage performers play for a devoted listening audience in a unique setting featuring a state of the art sound system. Every performer receives via email a video of their performance.

The Open Stage is held on the 2nd Friday evening of each month at the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship (http://www.muuf.org/), 21 Normandy Heights Road, Morristown, NJ,. Occasionally the Open Stage is rescheduled, so check the Minstrel calendar each month to be sure.

Sign in begins at 6:00pm on the night of the show. Curtain is at 7:30pm.

We sometimes hire Open Stage performers to become paid acts in the Troubadour Concert Series. For more information and instructions on how to secure an Open Stage performance slot, visit http://www.OpenStage.FolkProject.org

The Folk Project Open Stage is held on the 2nd Friday of each month, but please check The Troubadour Acoustic Concert Series (http://www.folkproject.org/minstrel/minstrel.shtml) for schedule changes. Admission is $5.00 cover charge at the door and $5.00 for anyone under the age of twenty-one. Refreshments and fine baked goods are complimentary and available throughout the evening. Free-will donations are encouraged. Each Open Stage begins with a 20 minute set performed by a featured act selected from a previous Open Stage. The Open Stage is actually two stages run simultaneously. The Main Stage in the auditorium and the Terrace Room Cabaret, a smaller, more intimate space. This enables us to accommodate thirty performers. All those wishing to perform at the Open Stage should begin arriving at 6:00 pm on the night of the show to sign up to play. Up to thirty performers will play three songs (15 minute maximum). The evening culminates with a spirited Jam Session and performers are encouraged to stay to the end of the night to support the other players. In the past we've "discovered" new acts at our Open Stage who have then been offered a Featured Act at a future Open Stage and, in some cases, invited to be the Opening Act for the Troubadour Concert Series. Hope to see you soon at the Open Stage!
