From: Clinton Hammond
Date: 03 Mar 04 - 03:27 PM

I know there are some few of us who ghost Mudcat (Some more often that others) so I wanna post this here to catch their eyes....

I'm now hosting an Open Mic @ The Kildare House , every monday evening from 8:30-12:30 (We'll go later if it's hoppin'!)

There are prizes to be won every week... 1st prize is a 50 buck gift certificate to Riverside Music (4769 Wyandotte East, Windsor)

2nd prize is a 20 buck gift certificate to The Kildare House

Winners determined by audience applause

At the end of the year (Dec 27th) all 1st and 2nd prize winners from the year will have their names in a draw to win 500 bucks!

So, bring a guitar... Bring a saxophone... Bring a kazoo... Bring 3 people to sing with you!
Play Folk... Play Blues...   Play Classic or Contemporary Rock... Play Originals! It's all good!

So Kildare House is located in "Walkerville" which is a neighborhood of Windsor, Ontario?

Hey, I'm pretty sure it's in the Milky Way Galaxy but before I warp in I'd like some reassurance.

What's the "inspection time" now for those trying to pass over the border, with or without musical instruments?

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Charley,

It obviously varies from time to time, but for the most part there are very few delays at the border any more — especially coming into Canada. More likely to encounter a bit of bother going back to the U.S., tho' that hasn't been much of a problem lately either. On a Monday night I would be amazed if it takes more than 10 minutes coming in (and maybe only a couple of minutes). Going home, maybe 15 or 20 unless they're on really high alert.

As for bringing instruments, there should be no problem if you're not coming in to play for money. If you're just coming in to meet friends for some music, I doubt they would say much more than "have a good time." Just be sure you can name a couple of the friends and know the address of where you're going.

Cheers,

david

Obviously the next two weeks are tough on an Irish musician but anytime after that I am up for a mass descent of Mudcatters on the Kildare House. Even if we don't sing, we can heckle that red headed fella. We should all show up with our instruments, and then leave the lad hanging.............hahahahahaha. Clint, you sure you want to do this? DDW, Charley, give us some dates. It is about a 2 1/2 hour drive for me, but one I will be glad to make to sing with you all.

Since I only promised to not bring people who squawk or go gereeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee on Sundays, I guess I'll tell them all about it. I know how much Clinton loves the sound of the great highland bagpipe.

What I would say crossing the border for my reason for going to Canada will not carry the same weight as my usual reason, particularly if anywhere near Mick, but, I too may be convinced to make an extra journey.

Monday should not be bad - Wednesdays, remarkably enough, are getting tough. No idea why.

On Crossing The Border...

Do NOT tell them you're coming over to play in public... tell them you are going to a chums house... for a few cocktails, and maybe a late dinner... If they think you're coming over to play in public, they'll want you to show a 'work' permit...

I can be PMed for my addy, and phone number to add creedence to your tale...

"We should all show up with our instruments, and then leave the lad hanging"

If you bring gear all this way and don't play, I might have to kick your ass BM! LOL

Mick — if you and Pete show up around the same time you'll have the Canadian border authorities on high alert; they'll think the Fenians are back for a second go....

I'll probably be going this Monday (March 8). I live just a few miles from Clinton and I'm sorta used to him, so I'm not scared any more.....

Hey Clinton,

What are the ground rules? Number of songs, length of time, lottery for who plays, etc.?

I sorta figured a bald-headed blues player might break up the march of red-headed Celtic players.....

Ground rules?

I'll be taking down names of folks who want to play as they arrive, and putting them up in that order... I guess... I suppose trying to keep the 'gear heavy' folks till last might be a good idea...

Length of time/Number of songs? Well, if it's just you and me, I'll leave ya up there all night if I can! LOL I'm gonna try to get a feel for it as it happens...

Celtic Players? You might find that most people coming out do more originals and classic rock than anything else... That's sorta typical for Open Mics around here....

That's why I sent email to the Windsor Folk club to let them know... not that I've heard anything back from them... But it'd be nice to have some talent through to break up the Beatles and Cat Stevens covers... (yawn!)

Clinton,

I'm gonna drop in at another open mic tonight at The Mill. Quite a few of the WFS people have been there the past few weeks, so I'll let them know about this. As for the WFS people not getting back to you — we haven't had any kind of get-together when we could spread the word. I'll make a point of bringing it up at the next executive meeting and/or the coffee house this coming Friday.

OK, folks. Maybe I'm showing myself to be an utter fool for doing this, but I'm gonna shoot myself in the foot and tell you something. This open mic is the only one I've ever heard of that offers prizes every week and I'm happy as hell to have won two of them.

Well, I won one. The other I got because nobody else showed up. I half-jokingly told Clinton I was gonna ride this gravy train to a new 12-string I want, and if you other jokers don't come out to make things interesting, I'll continue to do just that. I've got $100 toward it so far and I'm sure as hell not too proud to keep on.

The long and short of it is — Clinton is running an open mic and I'd go out to support him, even if there weren't any prizes involved. But since there are, I think I'd be a fool not to go every time I can. The worst that can happen is that I get to do a few tunes and hear music and performers I've never heard before. The best of it is that I get to do a few tunes and hear music and performers I've never heard before and win a prize to boot.

Can't beat that!

Hope to see some more faces Monday night.

cheers,

david

Darn! This post appeared while I was visiting family in the Chicago & Detroit areas & had limited net access; if I'd known about it I'd have made a point of getting over to have a go & meet Clinton & any other 'catters.

Ah well... will bookmark this thread & hope it's still running the next time I get back to the states.

Clinton, I'm *amazed* that an open mic is offering that kind of money -- & every week, no less! How can they afford to do it? (Especially if the crowds remain small!)

When I lived in the Detroit area (not far from you, Cool Beans -- in Southfield), I belonged to the Paint Creek Folklore Society. I bet a fair number of Paint Creekers would be interested in this -- I'll send this info along to their newsletter editor, shall I?
