***** Special Request *****
Many of our visiting performers are in need of a place to stay when they come to play.
Any House Concerteers with the wherewithall to take home a musician can count on,
not only free admission, but the scintillating company of a disciplined and conscientious
student of their chosen musical tradition. Let me know if this is a possibility.


Imagining what a House Concert featuring one tune from each of our performers over the entire year might sound like, I've lined up one example of what each of our performers have provided us over the past year. To be sure, there have been a couple of evenings that missed being recorded and I hope your favorite was not among them. I also hope you can do without titles as announcements are not always intelligible on the recordings. Click on each of these links to access the audio files.

01) Cillian Vallely & Kevin Crawford
02) Dan Newton
03) The Lost Trio
04) Hanz Araki/Colleen Raney/Stuart Mason

These evenings are supported by the
soup, fresh bread, beer, wine, coffee, tea & general conviviality
for which doors will open an hour before the music starts.
