The last of this year’s Open Mic Nights at Witherbee’s is tonight at the famous roadhouse. Emcee Mark Piper, tells us that the owners are taking a winter break. So there’s sure to be a big crowd at the upstairs bar.
In the meantime, Mark has fallen head over heels for a new love: his cigar box guitar. From Mark:
“It’s a real cool thing. I have been investigating them for a few months and decide to buy one. It is hand made in the USA. I love it, and have converted all my songs. The one I own was made by Rob Wroble, in Florida. It is made out of a Le Voyage cigar box. I have a FB page devoted to my playing it. There is a huge sub culture.”
Meanwhile, the Thursday night crew are investigating a new venue for this classic Schroon tradition.
