Performers are signing up for Open Mic competition

Lake Country Open Mic Has Talent contest begins at the Lake Country Coffee House on March 6.

The first performers have been announced for the 2013 Lake Country Open Mic Has Talent contest, with performances will begin at the Lake Country Coffee House.

The second year of the talent contest will begin with four performers set for March 6.

“It has been a very successful year with the Open Mic at the Lake Country Coffee House,” said organizer Jennifer Boal, with performances already ongoing this year.

“We have had many packed evenings with energetic performances from both familiar and new artists in a unique and intimate venue.

“After a slow start to registrations the Open Mic contest has once again gained momentum and features an array of stand-out singers and songwriters.”

Musicians set to perform during the first contest night on March 6 are Luke Atherton, Bex Troock, Dale Ziech and Lourine Welding.

Part of the evening will also be reserved for a regular Open Mic night and so performers are welcome to come out even if they are not in the contest.
