Jubilee! Circle Hosts Coffee House and Open Mic Event

On Friday, March 2, starting at 7 p.m., Jubilee! Circle is hosting its coffee house and open mic event featuring Brodie Porterfield, a popular singer and folk-inspired songwriter with a very unique guitar fingerstyle of play. At 8 p.m., local performers of all ages are invited to share their talents and gifts with guests in an open mic session.

The late poet, writer and visual artist Kahlil Gibran once remarked, “Music is the language of the spirit.” Even scientific studies have confirmed that listening to and playing music can have a perceived healing effect on an individual. This is true worldwide. This is why Jubilee! Circle hosts a regularly scheduled coffee house and open mic on the first Friday of every month.

What makes Jubilee! Circle of Columbia’s event so unique is that the stage is open to individuals of all ages. Most performers rely on open mic nights at local bars to showcase their talents and create a following; however, rarely is there a place for young people to do so. Now, there is a place … Jubilee! Circle. Over the past few months, several young performers have taken Jubilee! Circle’s stage to play and sing original compositions or read personal poetry. The popular event has featured well-known local performers, such as Dr. Roundhouse and the Post Timey String Band. This is an alcohol-free, family-friendly event—all are welcome to come!

Cost: Free admission (donations suggested for headline performer and refreshments). Location: Jubilee! Circle, 2627 Millwood Ave., Columbia. For more information, call 803-569-6385 or visit
