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

Again this year, we had thirty performers treat us to their specialties — we experienced soulful blues, political satire, quirky ditties, engaging traditional and contemporary folk music, stunning instrumentals and original compositions by area singer/songwriters.
