The now traditional Rickman Store open mic night has gained popularity and it is expanding. This Friday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. visual artists are encouraged to join musicians, poets and storytellers to open the holiday season in Cowee Valley.
The Music & Poetry Nights organized by singer/song writer Angela Faye Martin and the Friends of the Rickman Store started last June, and since then has become a monthly venue for sharing the talents of local writers and musicians inspired in these mountains.
Everyone who has a poem, a song, a story, or a piece of art to share with the community is invited to attend to perform around a growing and supportive audience who appreciates art in all its forms, especially when it’s presented in the cozy ambiance of the Rickman Store. Participants should arrive at 6:45 p.m. to sign up for their 15 minutes performance.
