Home Routes Concert Series Announced
The Mann Art Gallery is pleased to
announce that we will be carrying on the tradition of the Home Routes
'House' concerts during the 2013 - 14 season with six award winning
musicians from across the country as well as the United States.
For concert dates, ticket prices, venue details and
information about the performers of the 2013 - 2014 Home Routes Concert
series, Click HERE
operates 14 house concert touring circuits across Canada, from YT to PE. House
concerts are a North American tradition
that developed within the folk-roots milieu to introduce artists to
wider audiences. During the 1950’s “folk boom” a significant number of
young people began to choose “folk singing” as their profession. With
the number of talented performers by far exceeding the number of places
to play, house concerts remain a significant part of the music scene.
Home Routes brings
small communities professional artists of exceptional talent who would
otherwise perform only in theatres, concert halls and folk festivals in
urban markets. With almost no physical separation between artist and
audience, a house concert is an intimate experience for everyone.
Casual, comfortable and unpretentious, house concerts are fun and very
often, inspirational events that create lasting memories.

and learn more about their work. The artists give a brief talk about
their art practice and answer questions from those present. The gallery
provides free refreshments. Artist Receptions last about 2 hours, but it
is not necessary to stay the whole time. There is no dress code and
