Wide Open Mic night at Barrington Coffee House

It’s Thursday, so that means one of Barrington’s biggest success stories will continue when Wide Open Mic Night starts at 7:30 p.m. — just as it has virtually every Thursday evening since 2003 — at the Barrington Coffee House, 131 Clement’s Bridge Road.

Barrington Coffee HouseSign-ups for the popular weekly event begin at 6 p.m. and must be in-person.

The event was featured this week in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Click to read, but here’s an excerpt of the piece by Kevin Riordan:

“A teacher, a retiree, and two lawyers who call themselves the Jersey Peaches swing into a version of “Summertime” as steamy as the weather.

“A singer-songwriter/recovering addict/unemployed mason from Mount Ephraim is on deck with his guitar. So is a communications professional and blues guy called 3 Cat Clem; he’ll jam with a tattooed preacher who blows a heavenly harmonica.

“Welcome to Wide Open Mic night at the Barrington Coffee House, where strum and twang is on the menu every Thursday. Over the course of three hours, about 20 local performers make (mostly) original, acoustic music, for your listening pleasure, for free.”
