Open mic at the beautiful Sandy Spring Museum in Sandy Spring, MD! Come bask in a 360 degree environment of music and art every Tuesday, 7pm - 9.30pm. 2 pieces or 10 minutes whichever's SHORTER - family friendly environment, webcast LIVE on Facebook, YouTube and Twitch. The evening is FREE but we hope you'll bring a little something to support the night's featured artist, or even donate to the museum or our sponsor, Institute of Musical Traditions... and thanks to a recent VERY GENEROUS donation we even have an 88-key Portable Grand Piano in the house (please note that you'd like to use it in the comments during your registration!)

COVID precautions mean that advance registration at is required - on nights we're indoors only the 1st 20 registrants will be admitted (and we're probably indoors till the SPRING) - and proof of COVID vaccination is required (or negative test within the past 48 hours). The performance list is generated night-of. Currently masks are required inside the museum except while eating, drinking or during your performance.

You’re welcome to bring food or drink – there’s plenty of local restaurants that you can order from in advance, pick up and bring with. Tonight our featured artist is Juels Bland - one of the finest vocalists on the east coast with a biting onstage presence and even more biting music.

Registration is FREE but is required for attendance.
