MARIA and the Winnipeg Folk Festival present
Starting February 29, 2008 | 7pm

The Winnipeg Folk Festival is happy to announce the return of Open Mic Nights @ The Folk Exchange (formerly called Folk Club @ The Folk Exchange), this year presented along with MARIA and featuring guest hosts from MARIA’s roster of Manitoba musicians.

On Open Mic Nights, musicians and music-lovers unite to share songs, inspiration and just plain old good times in the casual, intimate atmosphere of the Winnipeg Folk Festival’s Folk Exchange venue, located at 211 Bannatyne Avenue (behind the Festival Music Store @ Albert Street).

Bring your instrument and take your turn on the Folk Exchange stage–or just come to listen (non-players will be charged a $2 cover).

The first Open Mic on February 29 will be hosted by the fabulous banjo man Rob Wrigley of Manitoba bluegrass sensations Stonypoint.

Each MARIA and Winnipeg Folk Festival Open Mic Night will start at 7 pm.

Call the Festival at (204) 231-0096 for more information.

Here are the special guests for the rest of the open mic season. More details about the rest of the Open Mic series to come:
