Lydaco Music & Booking sprang from my life-long passion for music, appreciation for the craft of songwriting and desire to make a positive difference in the world through music and art. 

I believe that bringing neighbors, friends and families together around shared musical experiences in intimate settings, are opportunities for us to strengthen and build relationships and create vibrant arts communities, while also supporting independent artists/singer-songwriters. In mid-Missouri I have worked to help expand listening rooms through cultivating new house concert series, so we can bring more songwriters to our community who might not otherwise have an appropriate venue to play.

As booking agent and promoter, I work with some outstanding touring artists/singer-songwriters on an ongoing basis, including, John Batdorf, Melody Guy and Steff Mahan.  In addition, I book shows and speaking engagements for John Batdorf and Michael McLean's Soundtrax2Recovery, a unique collection of songs of hope and empowerment for people in recovery.  
Venues and talent buyers are invited to use the "Contact" form on my site to inquire on artist availability, and/or to make an offer. 

Although I do enjoy providing "fill-in" booking support to touring songwriters/bands, this is a service I provide only as my time allows, as in my other business I am a grant writer and often on deadlines.  See the "House Concert Booking" page for more information and use the "Artist Inquiries" form to reach out with dates needed. 

Thank you for stopping by!
