Season 2016/2017 is Almost Over

The weather is changing and The Deck will close after one more concert outdoors.

I’m looking forward to hosting Daniel Champagne in May before closing the windows and doors and heading inside until the end of Sept/early Oct.

Thanks you to Caroline Gilmour, Horse McDonald, Kaleidoscope Eyes, Swanee, Caroline Gilmour and Mareesa (concert 2) and Katey Brooks for honouring us with your music this season.

Next season opens with Toni Swain! What a voice.

Happy listening, hosting and performing, wherever you are.

Play the Deck: Rachel’s House Concerts

Hi Everyone,

I love looking at what other people do. It gives me ideas. I thought some people might like to see some photos and video of what I have been doing.

My concerts are called Play the Deck and artists play from the deck of the pool. The pool is above ground and on a slope so the guests sit below on the grass and sometimes on the house side of the deck if the numbers are large.

I am an educator and so I ask artists if they will support a young person by allowing them to open for them with 2 or 3 songs and spend some time mentoring them. Every artist I have approached has agreed eagerly. I love their generosity.
