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 a few weeks away from trying something new. On any given evening, we usually have between 5 and 15 kids that are running around the backyard and listening to the music with their parents. So on May 26th, we're doing a concert specifically aimed at our younger audience. For the first half of the evening, nationally-renowned children's musician Eric Herman will be doing a set specifically for kids ages 3-12. I'll be grilling hot dogs before the show, so if you're around on Memorial Day weekend, we look forward to seeing you there.

Happy Spring!

P.S. Also, we got some great photos of our season kick-off. A huge thanks to Ross Courtney Photography for his great work. You can see some of them below.

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.
