SARANAC LAKE - BluSeed Studios will present Young Artists' Open-Minded Mic Night from 7:30 to 10 p.m. May 17.
All varieties of talent are invited to perform. Up to 12 performers ages 13-19, or eighth through 12th grades, are invited to share their voices and ideas in a professional acoustic setting.
The evening will be hosted by Infinity and a Day, featuring musicians and BluSeed open mic favorites Kiah Tucker and Kasey Cunningham.

"We laugh a lot, that's for sure," Cunningham said of their collaboration. "Sure beats the alternative, doesn't it?
"That's all Kiah and I ever do, laugh. We make songs out of anything we can think of. Literally. We mess up to the point of no return, and we make music. Singing has -figuratively - sewn us together to the point where it's a part of every conversation we have. No exaggeration. So, that's what we're here for, to sing and to laugh."
Performer sign-up is limited to 12 and begins at 7 p.m.
