  • Gents,

    I'm a bit late to this but are the gigs below still running and if so, is it for songwriters only?

    Cheers,

  • Anyone know of any open mic nights or singer songwriter nights that are still going? A lot of the previous links by the poster "Marlowe" are now defunct...? New to the dublin gigging scene so venues like Whelans or the Village would be too big. somewhere that would suit an acoustic sound would be great if anyone knows???

    Is this still going? Very interested in attending and playing at an acoustic gig where people can share their own material!

    They're on Facebook, drop them a note.

  • Hi guys :)
    Check out the open mic running at the Brian Boru pub in Glasnevin (formerly Hedigan's). Lovely venue and Sheila who runs the session is great! You gotta book a slot in advance, think her email is on the pub's website.

    Does anybody have experience with the Bleeding Horse sessions on Camden Street?

  • There's an open mic starting in Cup, a new cafe on nassau street. It'll be on every Saturday afternoon from 2.30 until 5. It's starting next Saturday (14-4-12) and everyone and anyone is welcome to play a few songs.




  • Hi Marlowe,

    Do you know any lyricists who would be interested in writing about world issues, eg, human rights, ploitics, weapon trade...etc.

    Thanks

    Yes. The two lads that run it (Fiach and John) are really cool and there is no clique-y aspect to it. They're on Facebook and I'd recommend artists of any ability/experience to drop down and play.

    I've had some great craic there and great feedback/learning at the night.

    The trick is not staying all night and not being able to get up on the Monday morning :D




  • http://www.dublinsessions.ie/singersongwriters.html

    found this looking for the bleeding horse sessions, just being sound... we're all in this together.

    p.s. i played the battle of the axe two years ago. they dont provide an amp, just a plug into the P.A and play situation. but the organizers' were nice if i remember and i met Neil delamere warming up in the fire escape stairs/green room.




  • Sad to report the open mic at the Brian Boru has finished up!

  • good work




  • Hey folks!

    I'm trying to get a music scene going in Arklow, Co. Wicklow. I have my work cut out for me!! But I'm starting an Open Mic on the 21st of September on lower main street in a new wine & craft beer bar we call ' Club 82'. Here's the link to the event http://www.facebook.com/ClubEightyTwo#!/events/363112517100234/ All welcome, to take part or just to watch. We'd love to see some new faces and new talents :) If anyone has any suggestions as to how to spread the word to musicians/performers I'd really appreciate your help!

    Thanks a million!
    Cathy

    Is this still going? Might pop along if so!




  • Nope, it's not on anymore




  • Hi guys, looking to get involved in some open night stuff.. just wondering what the general policy is on covers at these kind of things? I have some originals but would like to throw in a good few covers too or would that be frowned upon?




  • In my experience most places are grand with covers, it's really up to yourself. You'll get between 1-4 songs so it's good to know before you go up how many songs you can play. That way you can decide how many covers/originals you want to do. I think people are always happy to hear an original take on a song or just a popular song played well. The good thing about playing your own stuff is nobody can tell when you make a mistake. Hope that helps, and good luck to you =)




  • Hey lads,

    Does anyone know which open mic nights are still up and running in Dublin city centre? The list seems to be a fair bit out of date. Thanks




  • Anything in Maynooth or Leixlip?

    btw the list seems to be broken now, might need a new home




  • I like writing songs.




  • me too.




  • Lovely songs
