Folksinging started as a way to tell a story and now the intimate exchange between songwriter and audience is limited. House Concerts return to the age-old tradition of storytelling and face-to-face communication. As a host, there's not a whole lot to plan. It helps to give people 1 hour to chat and eat, a typical set is somewhere between 50-70 minutes, and somewhere around where an intermission would be, the host makes a small announcement about making sure "passing the hat" for donations. Simple as that!
No space is too small (and the host chooses the people invited)
Hosting costs you nothing (guests pay a sliding scale donation of $5-20 )
Optional Pot-Luck (preferably vegetarian or vegan) and Campfire Jam Sessions
