Last night was the first of four virtual Rob Case’s Open Mic – Poor David’s Pub shows during Poor David Pub’s 45th birthday month. (Check PoorDavidsPub.com for full birthday events) Each week, host Rob Case and behind the scenes guru Lynda Case will present songwriters who have played at PDP through the years along with regulars of the open mic – some of whom have played at PDP – and guests. Last night the featured songwriters having performed at PDP were Lynn McCracken and Tom Prasada-Rao. The other performing songwriters played solid sets of original material as well. Incidentally, last night was our 95th virtual show!
Tune in each week to hear an eclectic line-up of songwriters. Around Texas, we have had songwriters from Corpus Christi, Katy, and west, east, and north Texas. Outside of Texas we have had songwriters from Canada, Boston, North Carolina, Colorado, and Los Angeles, among others. And it’s Monday night. What else are you doing? Grab your favorite beverage, your favorite snacks, and settle in for three hours of music – and often laughter.
Join us from 7-10 p.m. Monday nights on the Rob Case’s Open Mic – Poor David’s Pub page on Facebook. If you are a songwriter and would like to play on the show contact Lynda Case at Case16386@aol.com.
The show is also a fundraiser. The donations are split between Poor David’s Pub and the Kerrville Folk Festival in order to keep the two venues going during the slow recovery from the effects of Covid. If you would like to donate now, the paypal address is firstname.lastname@example.org. David Card, poor David himself, sends 50% to the Kerrville Folks every few weeks.
Keep writing the songs that are in your heart.
Peace be with you.
