Original Music Open Mic Night with hosts Jenny Bienemann and Steve Dawson

Sunday, Aug. 04 | 7:00pm ET (6:00pm CT)

Open Mic

This is a special themed Open Mic of all original music!

Hosts Steve Dawson and Jenny Bienemann are award-winning, Chicago-based singer songwriters.

Steve Dawson’s gift for melody and lyrics have been praised by critics from Rolling Stone, Uncut, and the Village Voice, among many.  He tours with his wife in their band Dolly Varden, as well as in his band Funeral Bonsai Wedding and as a solo artist.  Steve runs his own recording studio, Kernel Sound Emporium, and teaches songwriting at the Old Town School of Folk Music.

Jenny Bienemann’s music has been described as falling “somewhere between winking innocence and worldly detachment” by Waterbug Records.  Her music is regularly heard on the radio, and featured in films, tv and theatre.  She plays with her own band, as a member of her husband Robin Bienemann’s band, and in the band The Zimmermen.

Experience Harbor Country’s most exciting array of acts, packed into one night on the fabulous Acorn stage with a state of the art, professional sound system.
