Stage Left Open Mic, Randy Anderson featured performer, comes up FRIDAY, January 13, 2022 (Yes, we’re back to our original day of the week, Friday evening!). Save the date, 7:00 pm/CST (doors open 6:30 pm CST). Please join us at Stage Left Cafe, 125 Van Buren St., Woodstock, on the historic Woodstock Square.

Our Stage Left Open Mics are now Hybrid Events so you can enjoy us from home if you can’t get into the Square. Either way, these monthly events offer a delightful evening of music and friendship. We hope to see you — performing or enjoying the performances.

Stage Left Open Mic – Randy Anderson featured performer in January

Randy Anderson is a self-taught guitar player who performs folk music, acoustic guitar with pickup. He likes to perform humorous and sometimes what he calls “off-the-wall” songs, but he also likes serious ones. He is a member of the Lake County Folk Club and occasionally opens for their monthly concert.

Randy spent most of his life in Central Illinois near Peoria, retiring in 2009. He and his wife have been married for 50 years. They moved to the Woodstock area a few years ago to be near their kids and grandkids.
