About the Event

This event is an opportunity for an open mic night in the physically distant world we currently live in. Participants are welcome to join us with a homemade junk instrument and a prepared song (cover songs are most welcome) to highlight the virtuoso of your musical junk creation. Feel free to involve everyone in your household and bring multiple junk instruments! If you want to join just to watch, feel free. If you want to join and share your instrument without a song, please do. Let's virtually come together for an evening of unique creations, fun music, and laughter along the way!
This workshop is free to participate! Donations for Kultrun & Neruda Arts are always welcome. www.nerudaarts.ca/donate
About Mary Neil
Mary founded KW Junk Music to make music accessible to everyone, and to encourage people to think about their sustainable practice. By making instruments out of material diverted from landfills and recycling plants, Mary challenges people to wonder, "why do we have so much junk to make instruments out of?" and how we can make a difference in our lives toward a more sustainable future.
Mary believes that music is an inherent part of human culture; one often can’t help being drawn into music in some way. Yet many people often have very little opportunity to create music. Using junk instruments, KW Junk Music works within communities and organizations to explore musical creativity in welcoming, safe atmospheres. Through unconventional instruments and group participation, Mary seeks to bridge the gap between performer and audience member by showing people that everyone can create music with anything.
