In Part 1 of this series, I told you why I love Open-Mics so much. Part 2 and Part 3 gave some do’s and don’ts for those who organize open-mics and those who perform. In this final part I prepared some do’s and don’ts for the audience.
In Part 1 of this series, I told you why I love Open-Mics so much. Part 2 gave some do’s and don’ts for those who organize open-mics. This part is about those who want to perform.
In Part 1 of this mini-series I already told you, why I love open-mics so much. Here’s Part 2 with some do’s and don’ts for people who organize open-mics:
After attending quite some festivals it is clear for me, that open-mics are one of my favorite, if not the favorite part of festivals. And here’s why:
I just recently noticed that my 5 year anniversary of picking up an instrument and making music is around the corner. So I thought it’s a good idea to take a look back, see how it all got together and how far I’ve actually come.
You’ve probably read my blog about this years Berliner Ukulele Festival. There were lots of opportunities to play open mics and since I was too chicken to play last time I was here, I wanted to make up for it this year.
Now that everything is getting a bit more quiet again I’ve had some time to think and started wondering, where this sudden urge to be on stage is coming from.
From 21st of June until 23rd of June Oslo Ukulele Festival took place in the lovely Nydalen neighboorhood. As you’ve probably seen, I was there as an artist (my first performance on main stage). But I also want to blog about the festival in general.
The 2nd UFO Festival took place on June 29th in Obermörmoosen in Bavaria, Germany. The festival is organized by Elisabeth Pfeiffer. In the last years she became an important actor in the ukulele scene in Europe and this charming festival is a perfect example of all the love she gives to this community.
In an attempt to get better with live gigs and playing in front of a real audience I did some open-mics at GNUF and Austrian Ukulele Festival. I thought it might be a good topic for an own blog entry, so here it is.
