What is a house concert?
A house concert is literally what it sounds like… a concert in someone’s home! House concerts are a unique, intimate musical experience, and this phenomenon is really catching on. House concerts create a wonderful opportunity for music fans to experience live performance in an intimate setting without the usual distractions. It’s a great way to see music if you aren’t into smoky bars or late nights. Beth often performs totally acoustic, without a sound system. Beth likes to play two sets with a break in between, giving her lots of time to visit with everyone.
To have a successful house concert, you need…a living room, a group of least 20 people (but ideally as many as can fit comfortably into your living room!) who would attend and enjoy the music, a little time for preparation, and a sense of adventure helps, too!
The host(s) work to create a listening environment, usually in the living room. There is a suggested donation (think of it like an admission price), ranging from around $10-$20 per audience member, and all of the money collected goes to the artist. Some house concerts are also potlucks, with the host asking everyone to bring a snack to share.
Beth loves playing house concerts because the audiences are attentive, her lyrics get heard, and she gets to make personal connections with music lovin’ folks!
A great resource for house concerts is a website called Concerts in Your Home, started by my friend Fran Snyder. It has a wealth of information about hosting, and also lists house concert series and artists who play house concerts.
