WHAT IS A HOUSE CONCERT?
House Concerts are one of the most important trends in independent music today – and they’re popping up all over the world!
A house concert is a chance to experience music in a warm and intimate environment. It’s when someone opens up their home and invites you into their living room to share in a performance by one of their favourite musicians. There’s just something about house concerts. For musicians, the intimacy allows for a deeper connection to the audience, which often leads to strong merchandise sales and lifelong fans and for hosts, it’s a chance to meet the performers and get them to sign their CD. A house concert is also a great social evening of friends and neighbours.
ARTISTS can you perform – as a solo, duo or small trio – 60-90 minutes of mostly original material – with little or no amplification
– for a donation (around $20/person) from those who attend?
If so, you’ve come to the right place.
All genres are welcome! Pop, folk, rock, bluegrass, new age, Celtic, R&B, jazz, country, classical, spoken word and nearly everything in between. Any act that can fit into a living room might eventually find a fan here.
