Royalston Open Mic  |  Athol  |  2008 

Open Mic night was hosted by the Royalston Cultural Council. On the first Friday of every month, musicians of all ages and genres gathered in the Royalston Town Hall to perform in front of a full house. Each month a "house band" emceed the evening and acted as a mentor to new performers and young musicians who were attending the Open Mic for the first time. The Royalston Open Mic provided a great venue for live entertainment in the area and drew participants from neighboring communities. The evenings were a result of collaboration between many residents and town committees. It provided the opportunity for the community to gather and connect with one another and for musicians to perform and network.
