My friend Bob Sammon writes, "The very talented, very funny, singer/songwriter Diana Tyler will be our featured performer at the open mic on Thursday, July 11 at Avon Lake's Old Firehouse. Diana will play from 7:30 to 8 and share a selection from her catalog of over 100 songs that range from the sacred to the almost profane. You are just as likely to hear her sing about social justice issues as you are firemen or duct tape. I think you're going to enjoy this one. In fact, I'm almost positive you're going to enjoy this one. Signup for performers starts at 6:30, music starts at 7, Diana plays at 7:30, the open mic continues from 8 until (usually about) 10. No cover. Free coffee. Lots of parking. It'll be a great evening. Share this and pass the word."

The open mic is at the Old Firehouse in Avon Lake at the corner of Route 83 and Lake Road (100 Avon-Belden Road).
Earthy songs about heaven...and heavenly
songs about more earthy things, too.
