Organizers note that keeping in hootenanny tradition, musicians interested in playing will sign in when they arrive. The first 16 musicians to sign in will be guaranteed a spot. Anyone interested in participating will have 10 minutes to play or as little as five minutes if they are one of the later performers.
In addition, there will be a special set featuring Chris Montgomery (Austin, TX), Jamy Holliday, Kattie Dougherty and Sharon Lane.
Canal Street Tavern, which shut its doors in 2013, was a longtime Dayton mainstay for music. Late founder/owner Mick Montgomery opened the club in 1981 and sold it in 2012.
Doors open at 7 p.m. Admission is free but a donation of $5 is suggested to help cover event costs.
Yellow Cab Tavern is located at 700 E. 4th St., Dayton.
