Once again a big crowd attended the Open Mic this October in Abbey Lane Theatre. Their anticipation of a great night's entertainment was more than satisfied as guest artists and contributors were in top form.

NJ McClean singer/songwriter started the evening with wonderful self penned songs accompanied by great guitar playing. Our second guest, the 16yr old poet from Portadown Anesu Mtowa, had the audience spell bound with her poetry highlighting her experiences as a young black girl growing up in Co Armagh. Her views on what Lifes' minorities have to face each day, through discrimination and hardships to survive, were clearly narrated. Both these artists deserve exposure and support for their talents.

From teenagers to nonagerians we were entertain with poetry, singing,storytelling,comedy and the written word. Donald McKenna celebrated is 90th year with a poem about reaching such a great age. Abbey Lane was in  stitches as  his wit and wordsmith skills are as sharp as ever. Diane Wynne's  poem 'Padraig Pearse';

Roy Uprichard opn the Camino de Santiago; Theo Sinson on guitar and singing Blues; Dymphna Ferran on jokes and her toyboy Fireman; Cathy Carson's written word stories 14th hour and Toast; teenager Sophie Ross with her orginal song 'Joy and Sorrow' on guitar; Kieran Quigley solo singing; Pat Farron remembered poems from his primary school days with John Vallely teacher ' what ever you say say nothing', Malachi's poem 'Women talk' on mental health and Peter Kelly finished the night with the old local halloween song 'My Aunt Jane'

We called a break then and set up for our guest artists Seonaid Murray(Sax) and Colin Hassard (poetry/guitar). This combo really worked along with individual pieces from both...Great hearing the Saxaphone played by such an accomplished musician and Mr Hassard the wordsmith supreme once again delighted us.

They had the crowd singing along from the start and made a great sound. 'Orchard Ukes' will be in the Golf Club (Armagh) rehearsing from 2nd Oct 8pm each fortnight if you wish to take up the Ukulele come along.

The competition for 2 people to see Japan v Ireland was won on a tie break question by Ryan Began from Orchard Ukes after a dispute over the shortest Anthem. Ryan and a friend were able to realise this great prize by tuning into RTE2/UTV at 7.30am on Sat.....No dispute over the result!

A great 'turn out' for our guest artist Trish Bennett and all our contributors made for another wonderful night in Abbey Lane.

Many thanks to Trish travelling all the way from Co.Fermanagh/Leitrim border to give Armagh a taste of her undoubted talents in the ''oul' poetry and storytelling game''. Other contributors to thank on the night Peter Kelly with his 1st anniversary  tribute to Una Boylan recalling some of the pieces she performed at our 'Poem and Pints nights' of the 70' and 80's. Una is still sorely missed. Tim Hanna presented work 'Zero some game' from Byddi Lee's writing classes as did Malachi with 'Return journey'. Joe Mc Ginley poem 'Do I really need to know!' had the crowd agreeing on its sentiment that social media just gives TOO MUCH information.

Dymphna as usual brought the proceeding to new levels with her funny poem '50 shades of Grey'. Mark Brownlee poem 'Dream Man'  a humurous take on the perfect partner and Michael O'Callaghan regaled us with 'She's my girl she's my world'.

The VERY  popular competition 'Family and Local Sayings' was well received dispite organized hacklers demanding the return of 'Limerick Laugh's'  Surprise gifts were presented on the audience's Ayes or Nays...the ayes have it!

Best sayings of the night...Braziel family input ''If you'd open your eyes as wide as your mouth...'' ''if his brains were elastic they would stretch round a sparrows knee cap'' '' it will happen when there's two moons in the sky and one in the dungel'' advice ''if you fall don't wait to get up'' and ''I'm going up the stairs to throw my head down for half an hour''...afternoon nap!  NEXT OPEN MIC 26TH APRIL. See you there! Thanks to all who  helped on the night and Felim for photos.
