House concerts are a growing phenomenon in which musicians perform in private living rooms for a small but attentive paying audience.

What is a House Concert?

It’s an invitation-only concert in someone’s home, presented by a host who does not profit from the event.

House concerts are usually
held indoors (but not limited to)
attended by an age group of 18 to 70 year’s old (but not limited to)
paid for by a $10-25 donation per guest (for the performer)
known to include light snacks, beverages or a pot-luck dinner
attended by the host’s friends, neighbors, co-workers, and maybe a few fans of the artist
performed by solo, duos and small groups
performed with small pa to no amplification
very intimate – the audiences sit close and are attentive
performed in 2, 40-minute sets with a 20 minute break
stronger for artist’s merchandise sales than traditional venues
booked with and without a financial guarantees (can vary by host and by artist)
known to house and feed the artist for the night

Although house concerts will adhere to most of these traditions, you may not find any house concerts that run exactly according to the list above. Each house concert is a collaboration between an artist, a host/presenter, and their friends and supporters.

Actually, this is a great checklist to go through when artists are working out details with a house concert host. Some surprises are nice, some aren’t. It’s a good habit to ask questions, don’t be shy.
