Each January, the Hard Luck Café clears it's booking calendar to make room for an evening of "open mikers". This concert provided the audience with an array of talented artists whose varied styles pleased the musical tastes of everyone in the room!

Over a dozen performers treated us to their specialties — we heard mournful blues, stinging political satire, engaging traditional and contemporary folk music, stunning instrumentals and original compositions by area singer/songwriters.

Featured tonight were:

Andy Romanoff
Scott and Connor MacDonald
Sage Wind
Walt and Margaret Sargent
Two For The Road
Dick Morrison
Michele Monte
Mark Yodice
The Ya-Yas
Martha Trachtenberg
Nick Vermitsky

Now that was a great evening!
