House Concerts 101

House concerts are a wonderful grassroots phenomenon where world-class touring musicians and  local talent alike perform in the comfortable intimacy of private homes and similar nontraditional spaces.

Exactly what is a house concert?

The definition’s flexible, but generally, it’s a show that’s presented in someone’s home or nearby private space.

  • If the answer to any of these questions is YES, then you have a wonderful surprise in store: House Concerts.
  • Do you like to sit up front near the stage at folk/ acoustic concerts, so that it seems almost like the performers are playing a private concert just for you?
  • Do you get annoyed with people talking loudly at the next table or back bar when you are just trying to enjoy the music?
  • Is it a long drive (or a downtown parking nightmare) before you can hear music at your favorite club or coffeehouse?
  • Have you wished that someone would open a great venue right in your neighborhood – someplace safe, clean and fun to visit?
  • The audience is smaller than at a coffeehouse or club.
  • The money collected at our home goes straight to the performers, with no “profit motive” on our part.
  • There are House Concerts being given in almost every part of the U.S. and Canada. Some house concerts are “one-shots,” but most are presented as a series.
  • Please consider your reservations as a commitment; last-minute cancellations (or just not showing up!) mean empty seats and a smaller payday for the performer(s).
