GUEST,Phil Cooper Advice re. House Concerts (75* d) RE: Advice re. House Concerts 27 Apr 00


My singing partner, Margaret Nelson, and I have played many house concerts in the 18 odd years we've been performing together. Many of the people who hosted us have turned into good friends. We've done better playing at house concerts financially than we have playing for some "name" clubs that have booked us midweek and then neglected to promote the show. We have sometimes encountered hosts who did not want to charge money to guests in their home. In those cases they have paid us out of their own pockets (above and beyond the call of duty). We've learned some good songs from guests who've stuck around and sung for us after the show. I can count on one hand, and still have fingers left over the number of bad housing experiences we've had in all this time. Thanks. Phil
