Eclectic. Electric. Roots Rock Reinvented. 5 albums and a decade on the road have seen Haggis evolve from wildly popular local band to established international touring act. They record great music, back it up with inspired live performances, and tour constantly.

An uncompromising commitment to their music and fans helped them garner top ten charting positions on Billboard and Amazon, and their very own PBS special.

He’s neither grizzled nor nostalgic, but veteran artist Edwards is still warm as sunshine, real as truth, and intimate as a visit between old friends. With uncompromising musical integrity, he delivers songs of passion, insight, and humor rendered in a powerful tenor.

As Edward journeys into the future, remember his promise from 1971: “Sunshine, come on back another day … I promise you I’ll still be singing.”

The Folk/Acoustic Open Mic night at TCAN has been a tradition since the opening of The Center years ago. And we could try to describe this event by mentioning all the significant songwriters and talented musicians who have played and sung and captured a special moment in time.

But the TCAN Folk/Acoustic Open Mic night isn't about individuals so much as it is about a community. Everyone is welcome to perform – the event starts at 8pm but sign-up starts at 7:30pm.

Hosted alternate weeks by Mark Stepakoff. 

Admission: non-member $5 member $0
