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 2014 - 15 season with six award winning
musicians from across the country as well as the United States.
The concert schedule is currently being
drafted by the Home Routes crew and will be available later on in the
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.
