We’ll probably start a new music show from Londonderry, Tupelo Music Hall – Open Mic, starting Wednesday Sunday December 26. It will run on Sunday at 11:00 AM, and repeat Wednesdays Thursdays at 7:30PM and Friday morning at 1:30 AM and 8:00 AM . There are new shows monthly, but enough are available so we can run 13+ weeks without repeating. Here’s the description:
Tupelo Music Hall is a highly respected venue, showcasing talented, nationally-recognized musicians who perform in a friendly, relaxed, attractive and intimate setting.
Once a month, Tupelo holds Open Mic Night. This is Tupelo’s most requested event, and features a number of established artists as well a several new talented acts. Each artist performs two songs and each evening includes an established feature act who performs a full half hour set. Many a new artist has gotten their break at Tupelo Open Mic.
The Hall is always packed to capacity with musical talent. Due to its popularity the location is attracting more and more individuals – so much so that the show often carries on until the wee hours of the morning.
Format is similar to Austin City Limits.
The sound quality is exceptional, due to the design of the sound stage in the Tupelo Music Hall, and a direct feed from the Tupelo sound deck. Ambient microphones gather input from passive microphones around the room.
Each program is approximately an hour in duration (the four to five hour recordings are edited to 3 – 5 one hour shows with the host, Robert Haigh, of Old Vienna fame, introducing each separate act)
