From the iFolk website:
House concerts are a wonderful grassroots phenomenon where world class musicians and developing local talent alike perform in the comfortable intimacy of private homes and similar nontraditional spaces. They’re fun to attend, fun to present, and fun to play. This page is dedicated to spreading the word!
This strikes me as a wonderful idea.
On a related topic, The Nields are playing at Grassy Hill on Sunday, March 16. They had a cut included on the New Music Made in New England CD that was included with YANKEE in summer 2001. Well worth a visit if you’ll be in Connecticut in March.
And, on the same folk topic, Edie Carey is worth a listen.
