US and Canadian Open Mikes - by musicians, for musicians

Open Mics in Carlisle, PA

Every 2nd and 4th Tuesday, a great collection of music players and lovers alike gather in the taproom of "The Nest" to enjoy local community, music, and brews.

Join Brett G. Rudder and some of Carlisle's finest players as they step up to the the mics at 19 N Hanover in Carlisle; or just come to listen to the wiiiiiiiiiiiiide variety of musical talent that this little PA town has to offer. You'll hear full bands and solo singers, 12 string guitars and cajons, keyboards and violins, punk rock and classical folk, scottish small pipes, and an incredible amount of original material. You'll fit right in.

Normally, 3 songs (around 15) minutes per act, and please keep everything PG - we're family friendly! All ages welcome to play, as long as a guardian accompanies them in.
