There is no better place to see your favorite band than in your own home, and there are few concerts more satisfying for artists than those hosted by fans. House concerts can be great routing opportunities (with good merch sales) for bands on the road. For hosts, they present a chance to get to know favorite performers, introduce friends to new music and bring bands to markets the might not otherwise visit. A common practice in the Folk Music world, house concerts are perhaps an underutilized tool for Bluegrass bands and fans alike. Veteran house concert performers and organizers will discuss the ins and outs of getting started and developing house concerts, as well as what goes it to making a great house concert series.
