Old Town School of Folk Music
Music produces more prodigies than any of the other performing arts. Yet in a culture where the principal venues for music are bars and clubs, it’s nearly impossible for young artists to find audiences for their burgeoning talents. Enter Old Town School, with its monthly exclusively teen-oriented open mic in an environment that’s not only actively encouraging, and—should any of those young artists happen to wander the halls and check out the photos on the wall—decidedly inspirational.
