World Class Music
From all over the Northwest - to your neighbor''s back yard
The 2019 Season is Here!
For those of you who joined us for even a single show last year, welcome back! For those of you interested in joining us for the first time, we're glad you're here. We always look forward to hosting the musicians and our friends both old and new at our house for this wonderful series of events. For those of you who are not familiar with what a house concert is, you can read about it here. For those who just want the schedule, click here. If you need the address to our house, it's at the bottom of this page. If you'd like to join our email list and get a monthly reminder of what is coming up next, just send me a quick email.

We are starting the season with a great group (I might be biased) that includes myself on organ playing with the fabulous drummer Matt Larsen and the amazing young trumpet player Skyler Mendell. As with all the groups, you can click on their names below to hear some of their music.

I also want to put in a quick note, as we're having a special kid's show in May. Nationally renowned children's musician Eric Herman will be doing a first set especially for the young ones (although I guarantee adults will enjoy it, too), so mark your calendar and tell your young friends now.

See you all in a few short weeks!

What is a house concert?
A house concert is simply when a bunch of people get together to listen to someone play music at someone's house. They tend to be a bit more informal than normal concerts, with more chances to interact with the musicians, both during the show and between sets. Guests are encouraged to bring their own food and drink, but there's always plenty to share. We open our doors at 5:30, and the music usually begins a little after 6.

If the weather is nice, music will be performed on our back patio, with seating on the tree covered lawn. In less pleasant weather, our living room fits about 30 people along with my grand piano. A hat is passed so you can show your appreciation for the musician's efforts, but there is no obligation other than to come hear music, get to know your neighbors better, and have a great time. We hope you'll join us soon.
