CAPTIVATING CONCLUSION TO CROSSROADS SEASON 2015/2016


CrossRoads - Open-Mic - wrapped up with most of the regular Open-Mic gang showing up and a few new spectators.

Of course, Paul and his friend Manel were on hand to help round out the musical performers.

I did a spoken word piece at the microphone - lyrics from the legendary  Ida Cox (February 26, 1896 – November 10, 1967). She was an African-American singer and vaudeville performer, best known for her blues performances and recordings. She was billed as "The Uncrowned Queen of the Blues".

The lyrics I recited were from her hit song, "Wild Women Don't Have the Blues", and it is remembered as one of the earliest feminist anthems.

17 AMAZING CROSSROADS PHOTOS & 6 WONDERFUL VIDEOS THAT WILL MAKE YOU SMILE


MAY 2016 CROSSROADS was an excellent open-mic with visitors from far and wide.

Some people are still unsure what exactly an "Open-Mic" is - so to clarify - according to Wikipedia, "An open mic or open mike (derived from open microphone) is a live show where audience members may perform at the microphone. Usually, the performers sign up in advance for a time slot with the host or master of ceremonies. These events are typically focused on performance arts like poetry and the spoken word, music, and comedy." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_mic)
