House concerts

Dear Everybody,

 

House concerts are a great way to experience live music in the comfort of your own home.  You can invite friends, neighbours and, if it is a publicly listed event, even people you may not know.  Refreshments are usually served and potluck is often the choice.

 

We will play wherever there is room, we just make sure we have a little room to move.

 

Usually described as intimate concerts, they are often acoustic and unplugged. Please respect proper concert etiquette, keep the chatting to a minimum, no ipods, and no smoking.

 

Admission is by donation, some artists ask for a guarantee, and some a minimum attendance.  All proceeds go to the musicians.  We are professional musicians.  A good rule of thumb is 20 to 40 guests.

 

Here are some thoughts to consider if you want to host a house concert:

 

How many people can you comfortably and safely fit in your house/garden?

How will you guarantee a reasonably large audience?

Is there adequate parking in your area?

How will neighbours react to live music next door? ( if it's summer and it's outside, just invite them)

 

If you are interested in making a house concert happen, email maura@maurashaftoe.ca, tell us when and how you would host a house concert and we will try to make it happen.

 

Cheers
