Feb 8 – Abbye West Pates Open Mic Feature

Our February Open Mic Feature won the Annual Songwriter’s Competition at the Rose Garden and we thought you’d enjoy!

Abbye West Pates is a songwriter and storyteller based in Memphis, TN. Born and raised in southern Mississippi, she often writes about the small town that raised her and the city that’s grown her up. Inspired by folk/Americana artists like Patty Griffin and Lori McKenna and authors like Wendell Berry, Abbye tells stories that locate you in a particular place with a particular people. She explores life’s real struggles – addiction, grief, anxiety – reminding us of grace and faith and forgiveness in the midst of it all.

Open Mic starts at 7pm, with performer sign up at 6:30.  Admission $3
