Well, not to oversimplify, but ... it's pretty much exactly that. It's a concert. At our house. And, since it's at (in) our house, it's a private, by-invitation event, intended for our friends & invited guests. It's not a business, and we don't charge "admission". We do ask, however, that guests make a contribution ($20 minimum suggested, or whatever you can afford). 100% of your contribution goes to the artist.
What style of music will I hear?
Mostly Americana (aka "roots") or blues music. Mostly, though not always, acoustic. We fell in love with dozens of the Americana & blues artists we heard in Austin. These artists perform nationally and internationally, and our hope is to catch them as they pass through our area, to share their music with us. If you're not sure what style of music this is, check out some of the artists / websites on our LINKS page.
How much are tickets?
Admission is free. Since this is not a business, we don't sell tickets. We do, however, ask that guests make a contribution:
In-home concerts: $20 suggested minimum per person suggested, or whatever you can afford
Online, live-streamed concerts: $15 suggested minimum per household, or whatever you can afford
100% of all contributions goes to the artist.

How do I reserve a seat for a concert?
For an in-home concert, click here for details. For an online, streamed concert, click here for details.
Can I invite my friends?
Of course. Only the person requesting seats for the concert must be on our mailing list. We encourage you to bring friends & neighbors, and we'll encourage them to join our mail list once they've enjoyed one of our concerts.
Can I bring my kids (or grandkids)?
That depends. Unless designated All Ages Welcome, concerts are for adults (not because of the content, but so that the adults who attend can enjoy the music). Occasionally, we will list a concert as All Ages Welcome. In these cases, kids are welcome, but subject to a few guidelines. Click here for details.
How long will the concerts be?
That depends on the artist, but they will most likely be two 45-minute sets, with a 20-30 minute intermission midway through the performance. Online, live streamed concerts may be a bit shorter but will generally follow the same format.
Can I shoot pictures or video?
Photos are fine, as long as you don't use a flash (that would be a distraction for both the artist and our other guests). Videos will only be allowed if you have obtained permission from the artists. Most of the time, we have already asked the artist and we'll let you know before the concert. If we forget to mention it, better safe than sorry - ask us or check with the artist yourself.
