Please leave your shoes at the door. Ok. You don’t have to ask me twice. Come on in and meet everyone. Hello, everyone! Grab a dinner plate, and dig in. Oh, boy! And, thank you. It’s a House Concert!

All live performances are fun, but being invited into someone’s home where all their friends have gathered together and there’s a warm meal and a soft bed — these are a special kind of fun.

Let me set the scene for you. A typical house concert involves 20-25 guests (or more — we once played a house concert in northern Michigan in a huge barn that had theater seating!), a potluck dinner, two 45-minute sets of music, lots of mixing and mingling with lovely folks, and a place to rest one’s head at the end of the night. Nothing but the good times, and there is, literally, not a bad seat in the house!

We’d love to come to your home and put on show. Email me, and let’s make it happen!
