'The crowd is always attentive and the atmosphere friendly and informal... I would recommend that you get down to one of the great open mic events run by Cambridge Acoustic Nights'  Weekend Notes

Saturday May 25th at CB2, Cambridge:

Open stage with special guest Karen MacWhinnie and friends

On Saturday May 29th we host an open stage evening in the basement at CB2 with special guests Karen MacWhinnie and friends. Karen hails from Scotland. She loves singing Americana, blues and jazz, and used to sing that mix in Pizza Express restaurants and private functions. Over the last few years she has come to CB2 sessions singing a few songs, teaming up with Rhys Wilson and more recently joined by Matt Kelly. They are planning to record a CD of Karen's favourite songs later this summer. Expect to hear some songs from artists such as: Townes Van Zandt, Gillian Welch, Nanci Griffith, Bob Dylan, CSNY, Johnny Cash, Chet Baker. Karen sings powerful songs, gentle songs filled with passion, ones that often tell stories that move you.

We also welcome the following local performers:
