Poetry Open Mic
Poetry Open Mic

SoulFood Poetry Night is curated by Michael Dylan Welch and Tanya McDonald, and has been running since July of 2006. We ask one featured reader to select someone else to read with them. This process echoes the sense of community and connection that is central to SoulFood Books, brings in new voices, and helps to create harmony or contrast in our reading series. Featured readers start shortly after 7:00 p.m. After we have a break to enjoy the bookstore, its art gallery, and especially its café, we have an open-mic reading where we invite you to share your poetry. Our featured readers are mostly from the greater Seattle area, but we welcome poets from farther afield as well. More info: http://sites.google.com/site/soulfoodpoetrynight

Community Open Mic
Community Open Mic

The first Saturday of each month is Community Open Mic night, a SoulFood tradition, and also a wildly popular and well-attended event. As with most events, we stream our Open Mic live to the world from our livestream page.

Here’s your chance to show Aunt Betty in Australia that song you’ve been working on for months now! So that each person has time to shine, we ask that each act perform only 3 songs/poems or 15 minutes. Even then, this event runs from 6pm until usually past midnight.

Come down and enjoy the fun. We never know what gems the night will offer. Cost per slot is $10, but if you’re a Tribe Member, it’s free.

Clint McCune
Clint McCune

Clint McCune is a partner and co-creator of the community inspired SoulFood Books and Café in Redmond, WA. A seasoned musician with 11 albums under his belt and an upcoming DVD and CD release; he is a strong force on our local music scene. Using his experience with community development and his artistic sensibilities, Clint has been a vital part of the Redmond Arts commission for the past two years. He has been involved in projects such as Arts in the Park, Redmond Digital Arts Festival, and hosting city wide open mics.

With a musical career that spans 18 years, Clint has recently opened for such acts as Devin Townsend (with other Alvarez signed artists), legendary guitarist Bill Frisel, and performed at SouthxSouthwest in support of The Hope Project to raise awareness of the genocide in Darfur. Having toured across the United States and Europe, Clint has had the opportunity to play for people in the streets, to heading the Beaufort Musical festival for thousands of people.

Clint’s roots run deep in the Northwest. Born and raised outside of Seattle, he was greatly influenced by his father, Don McCune of Exploration Northwest, and his strong love of this area. His music, community involvement, and continual collaborations with other artists reflect a true Pacific Northwest heart.
