Open mikes in downtown Port

A weekly open mike called Merrimac Mic is held every Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at Plum Island Coffee Roasters.

Poets, writers and storytellers of all ages are encouraged to sign up for five minutes at the microphone. No experience is necessary.

Tonight’s event will feature Amesbury author Bryan P.T. Riley, who is currently working on his 14th volume of poetry, second novel and a music project. Upcoming speakers include Lisa Golda-Shields on April 24, Jeff Savlon on May 1 and David Surette on May 8.

The coffee shop is located at 54R Merrimac St., Newburyport. The shop itself is closed during the open mikes, so attendees are encouraged to bring their own refreshments.

For more information, call 978-465-4428 or email merrimacmic@gmail.com.

Additionally, musician and actor Steve Blackwood is hosting Talent Tuesdays, a weekly open mike at Oregano Pizzeria and Ristorante in Newburyport.

Blackwood, a Newburyport resident who played Bart on “Days of our Lives,” will sing jazz standards, blues, Sinatra, selections from the Great American Songbook and Brazilian tunes. Local singers and musicians will then be invited to show off their talents, as well.
