Could anything be better than an afternoon listening to world class music in an intimate setting with a small group of friends? Well that’s what a house concert is. Check out this CNN article about the house concert scene.
The host invites musicians to do a show at their home. They gather a group of friends and fans for the concert. Usually there is a pot-luck meal before and after the show. People bring a covered dish and something to drink.
There is a suggested donation which goes entirely to the musicians. Ours is usually $20 each. ALL the money that is collected goes to the musicians. If the musicians are touring they are often invited to stay at the host’s home overnight to help with travelling expenses.
