Special Events, House (and Barn!) Concerts
We've played shows in some amazing places! Like on vintage railroad cars with Ramblin' Jack Elliott, and on the Columbia River at Bonneville Dam's 75th Anniversary for Woody Guthrie's 100th Birthday celebration. And each and every House Concert is its own Special event. From living rooms in Bridgeton, Maine to Norman, Oklahoma to backyards in Portland, OR, to 100 year old Historic barns in Yakima, WA and Bend, OR. If there's a space to play in a room in your house where you dream of hearing an intimate, once in a lifetime show, make that dream come true! Because that's what 'House' Concerts are all about ...
