Arts Night Out! FREE String Changing Workshop, Open Mic and Old-Time Jam | Friday May 1st, 5-8pm FREE
Join us here at Elderly Instruments in Old Town Lansing for our part in May's Arts Night Out event!
Come and browse our multi-roomed, museum-like showroom (long a travel destination for music lovers everywhere). The fun begins at 5pm, when we'll have an OPEN MIC and FREE string changing workshop!
Want to test your performing skills? Try out some new songs or new chops in front of a live audience? Taste your very own 15 minutes of fame? Or just listen to the fresh and unexpected here in our own city? The open mic experience is for you! Any and all are heartily welcome! Each performer gets three songs or 15 minutes - whichever comes first.
From 5pm to 7pm we’ll host a FREE string changing workshop. Bring in your instrument, buy a pack of strings (or bring your own), and we will change your strings at no extra charge. Learn how to change your strings and find the right strings for you.
THEN at 6:30 we'll be featuring an Old-Time Music Jam hosted by Mike and Mary Ross!
If you play fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, dulcimer (either kind), or anything else you can play the old tunes on - or if you'd simply enjoy being in a room humming with live music played by real human beings - come over and join us!
It's all free! Come and take part!
