Open Mike Jamming With New Friends

Tonight we went out for dinner and music to Roy’s Towne Pub in Royston, about 4 miles from our house. The dinner was pakoras, chowder (for Jean), and a grilled salmon sandwich (for Paul). The music was provided by 14 different musicians, including myself.

The format is an open mike with 3 songs per performer. You have an option of playing alone or inviting others to join in on your songs. I didn’t know any of these folks, but figured what the heck? I invited two guitar players, a bass, a harmonica, and drums to join me. What fun!

I led the group on Roseville Fair, Deep River Blues, and Good Morning Blues. We got some great guitar and harmonica instrumentals going!

One couple danced along with several of the musicians during the evening.

Three hours of music, fun, and food! We will return next Sunday!


About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.
