|Ok, I'm sold. How do I host one?
||All you need to do is:
1. Provide a common space big enough to fit at least 20 people (on pillows, folding chairs, soft rugs, whatever).
2. Invite your friends and family and ask that they make a suggested donation to the artist.
3. Provide drinks and/or snacks if you'd like (chips, cheese & crackers, cookies, veggies, etc.).
A house concert costs almost nothing to the host; the only out-of-pocket expenses are for the drink and snacks. The "suggested donations" will take care of us!
However, if preferred, the host can provide the concert fee. Whatever works best for the occasion.
There's a great article about house concerts at www.houseconcerts.org
