EMass Craft Farmer Open Mic Night
October 7 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Light the signal fires,
Sound the conch,
Shout it from Beacon, Blue and Bunker Hills,
Paint it on a Mass Pike overpass,
Hang a banner over the green monster,
Call in and make a plug on WBUR,
Ride a tractor from the Old North Church to Concord
Eastern Mass Farmer Open Mic Night
Saturday, October 7th
Clark Farm, Carlisle MA
Potluck at 6 PM, Open Mic at 7 PM
At least once a year, it’s worth getting together to share a big meal and enjoy the artistic talent and creativity in our community. Because in addition to being cultivators of fields, food, and culture, farmers are also poets, musicians, writers, dancers, actors, artists, and multi-faceted, talented people of all sorts. And after a season spent growing and selling food, we should take a night to eat it and hang out together!
Anyone! Farmers, friends and family of farmers, people who eat food, cook food, build barns to hold food, raise money so that farmers can grow food, write songs about food, make sculptures out of food, etc. And for the open mic, all sharing formats welcome – music, poetry, prose, dance, comedy, stories, dramatic presentations of crop plan data, etc. Be brave!
If you are planning to share something for the open mic and want to give me a heads up that would be great (but spontaneity also welcome).
185 Concord St
Carlisle, MA 01741
Saturday October 7th @ 6 PM
Other Misc Deets:
Weather permitting, we will be outside. Otherwise we may retreat into Clark Farm’s awesome barn, with all doors open.
No dogs please
Bring a tent if you want to camp out – quietly for neighbors’ sake – afterward.
Amplification will be available, but let me know if you have any gear you can contribute
$10 will be awarded to anyone who can fall asleep on stage as their talent (attn: farmers working market or in the field on Saturday).
Thanks in advance to Clark Farm for hosting!
