House Concert/Listening Room

Booking

We specialize in booking private house concerts and listening room shows. House concerts are private, invitation-only, intimate concerts usually held in homes. Many public venues, including businesses, public libraries, churches, breweries, coffeehouses, folk clubs, restaurants bar, as well as nonprofit arts organizations present singer-songwriter "listening room" shows.

​​​"Without Vicki's encouragement and guidance we would never have started hosting house concerts. Her passion for building community through music, her connections with extraordinary musicians, and her attention to the details needed to bring together a great show, have made it all easy and fun."

(Roger & Cherise Still, Still House Concerts)


"Vicki’s musical experience has allowed her to develop the knack of finding artists who are not only perfect for a house concert setting, but who are also extraordinary singer/songwriters who create an interactive atmosphere and bring the audience into their music for an unforgettable intimate musical experience.  A house concert is a wonderful experience for the hosts, the artists, and for all those who are lucky enough to attend.  Hosts also get additional awesome “behind the scene” conversations and experiences with the artists, and often develop a true connection and friendship."
(Ron & Brenda Jones,
Jones House Concerts
