“Open Mic Nights” will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month beginning Nov. 4 at Blue Ridge Books on Main Street in Waynesville.
The series is hosted by Chris Minick and sponsored by The Haywood County Arts Council and the Music and Poetry Lover’s Network.
The events are free and open to the public; attendees will have the opportunity to make donations with all proceeds going to benefit the Arts Council’s JAM (Junior Appalachian Musicians) program that offers old time mountain music lessons on guitar, fiddle, and banjo to students in fourth grade and up.
Participants may begin signing up at 6:45 p.m. at the bookstore. For information call 452.0593 or 456.6000.
