Host a Show
What is a House Concert?
It's a show performed in a host's living room, patio or whatever space you have. I come to your place, entertain you and your guests and we have a pot luck meal together. My concerts are acoustic-only which creates an intimate environment where you and your guests are literally a few feet from me.
As a host, you get a wonderful feeling of accomplishment for hosting a ridiculously fun, memorable event that your guests will love and rave about. And I, as an artist, am supported and get to connect with my audience in a meaningful, personal way. It's a great experience for everyone.
How much does it cost?
You can choose either a Flat Rate or a Donation-Based performance powered by your guests.
How long is the concert?
Forty-five minutes to an hour.
How do I Host a Show?
Decide which act that you would like (see Featured Acts below). Decide on a time and date. Send invites to friends, neighbours, co-workers, family and whomever you would like. Have them RSVP. Advise your guests to bring a homemade dish for the Pot Luck Dinner and that a donation of $10-$20 for the show is expected. Or choose the flat rate option. Ready your space. Voilà!
Bjorn Folkvar House Concert (Adult content)
An unplugged intimate off-the-rails evening of bizarre, comedic songs and their stories written on the road by a touring bard.
Love-In with Startynartrae (Adult content)
Beginning January 1, 2020, Michael will be performing Love-Ins. This is an intimate listening and audience participation show in which Michael performs songs created by people just like you. And the show and culminates with us creating a new song together that will, in turn, be shared at other Love-ins!
