Go grab a mic and belt it out
IT’S time to discover some fresh new talent and it seems an open mic night is just the way to do it.
Two Airlie Beach businesses, Cotton Candy Cowgirls and Fish D’vine, have joined forces to fund an open mic night to encourage more budding artists to take to the stage.
Owner of Cotton Candy Cowgirls, Kristel Taylor said she wanted to give young people a chance to express their talents.
“There are a lot of amazing young teenagers making some great music,” she said.
“They don’t have an avenue for performing other than busking at the market.”
Ms Taylor said anyone was welcome to perform on the night and those who did will go in the draw to win a $50 Fish D’vine voucher.
Open mic night will be held in the Fish D’vine and Candy Cowgirls courtyard.
Sessions will be held on the last Sunday of every month at 5pm but to kick things off, the first open mic night will be held this Saturday, July 2 at 6pm.
