Hopkinton POS

First Friday Open Mic

First Friday Open Mic at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts

Hosted by singer-songwriter Jack Byrne. 

Singers, players, songwriters, poets, and storytellers are invited to perform. Bring your friends for a fun and relaxed evening of music. All ages welcome.


This June's feature is Terry Kitchen. 

Called "one of New England's best songwriters" by The Boston Globe, Terry Kitchen creates songs that are portraits of ordinary people and emotions, captured with extraordinary compassion, honesty and humor. His new album Next Time We Meet, which reached #5 on the national Folk-DJ chart, highlights his chiming guitar and intimate vocals while deftly combining the personal and the political, often within the same song. His songs have won the Mid-Atlantic and USA Song Contests and been runner-up in the John Lennon Song Contest, and have appeared in numerous films. He's been performing on folk stages across the country since the 1990s, and in the 1980s he was the leader of the groundbreaking Boston band Loose Ties, whose experiences he recounts in his novel Next Big Thing, called "a great debut novel" by The San Francisco Book Review.
