House Concerts

I believe this will be the decade of the house concert.  The beauty of these evenings is infectious.  They work for the artists and they work for the audiences in a unique way.  Once you’ve been to a house concert, you’ll probably want to host one of your own.

Just invite over some folks (often, but not always, for a potluck) and tell them the evening is will feature a concert.  You can guide them to the artist website so that they can preview the music.

How Many?
The audiences of the house concerts I’ve played have ranged from 15 to 55.  It depends on how much space you’ve got, how many chairs you wanna put out and…how many folks you know who’d like to come.

How Much?
There is a recommended donation, usually $20 per person, but the price can vary in some situations.

The evening usually features two sets, so that folks can relax and mingle a bit more in between.  I also usually sell CD’s during this time.

Bottom line…these shows are totally delightful.  If you’d like to book a show, or it you have any questions, just drop us an email:

After two months of touring the Country and playing house concerts, I recorded this song… Born Again American. Here’s a solo performance:
