All About House Concerts

Reposted from 6-26-07. Yes, this article was so good the first time around that it's worth sharing again!

House concerts have become quite the rage for indie artists looking to increase their income. What's so great about it? Imagine playing in an intimate setting where people really want to hear you and experience your music. Not some noisy bar laden with loud drunks.

I have put together a list of links that you will find useful in your quest to learn more about this cool way to build your fanbase, sell more CDs and earn more $.

Concerts in your Home - the most comprehensive and up-to-date house concert site on the web
HouseConcerts.com - great list of venues across the U.S. to check out
House Concerts - great info on how to put on your own house concert
FolkMusic.org - lists house concert venues across the U.S.
The Complete Guide to House Concerts - interesting book on the subject, available at Amazon
House Concerts - a great how-to guide online
House Concerts FAQs - another great how-to guide
Article: Acoustic Music, Live From the Living Room - great article!
Article: UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL, The Joys and challenges of playing house concerts - another good article
Article: House Concerts - Promoting Music & Freedom of Speech - interesting article addressing the legal aspects of hosting a house concert

This is just the tip of the iceberg on the subject. I hope you find the information useful. Send me your comments and two cents on this. Any links that should get added? Let me know!
