What is a House Concert?
A great house concert is a collaboration between the artist, a host/presenter, and their friends. It’s open to many variations but most house concerts are:
- Held indoors and on weekends
- Attended by 20-50 people
- Paid for by a $10-$20 donation per guest (to the performer)
- Include light snakes, beverages or a pot-luck dinner
- Attended by the host’s friends, neighbors, co-workers, and maybe a few fans of the artist
- Attended by a 25-60 age group
- Performed by solo acts, duos and small groups
- Performed with a very little sound system or now amplification
- Performed in two, 40 minute sets with a 20-minute break
- Known to house and feed the artist for the night
