This Saturday, Nov. 2, is the second “1st Saturday Coffee House” at the Portage La Prairie Regional Library.

The acoustic-only open mic format has become a favourite amongst not only the casual performer but judging by the Coffee House attendance, the free matinee event is a performer and patron favourite.

“How about that?” says an exuberant Tom Howe who brought the idea to the library, said about the growing interest in the coffee house.

The all-acoustic venue — the space lends itself to great sound — is not just for singer/songwriters. Music has proved to be the largest part of the two hours to date, but it is open to writers, stand-up comics, magicians, etc.

“What do you got?” Howe said.

If you have a talent you want to share, the mic is open. All you have to do is sign the roster on Coffee House day and you’re in.

The “1st Saturday Coffee House” will start at 1 p.m. until 3 p.m.
