The Bugle Boy
The Bugle Boy is an intimate concert hall housed in a World War II army barracks located in La Grange, Texas. Once doors opened in January of 2005, The Bugle Boy quickly became one of the premier listening rooms in the country. Artists receive the undivided attention of the audience, and the audience gets a live music experience to remember. The focus is on original, independent singer/songwriters, who perform folk, blues, rock, jazz, swing and everything in between.
The Minstrel is a concert series run by the Folk Project, a non-profit folk music and arts organization. We use the facilities of the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship, 21 Normandy Heights Road, Morristown, NJ. We hold shows every Friday, year round, and the second Friday of the month is an open stage/audition night. The music we present is "folk" music in its broadest sense. That is, in addition to traditional American and ethnic "folk" music (in its purist definition), we welcome music of contemporary, primarily acoustic songwriters, and other types of music more folkie in attitude than in content. Shows start at 7:30 PM; dress is casual. We serve coffee, teas, and baked goods. There is no alcohol or tobacco on the premises. Admission is inexpensive; on our regular Friday concerts we ask $10.00 on your way in, plus the rest of what you thought the show was really worth on your way out. This additional amount goes to supplement what we pay the feature performer. All tickets are sold at the door. No advance sales or reservations are necessary.
