A New Season of House Concerts: Geoghegan, Sparks, Paquette, and McCracken

Sandra+McCracken Local readers of this blog may be interested in the upcoming 2009-10 season of house concerts in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Booked so far this season is emerging New Orleans singer-songwriter Sara Beth Geoghegan on September 18th, vintage CCM rockers (toned down a bit for the house) Greg and Rebecca Sparks on October 10th, Nashville singer-songwriter Jill Paquette (MIA for a couple years as she married and had a baby) on December 5th, and then in 2010 thus far, Sandra McCracken, formerly of Indelible Grace and wife of Derek Webb, on February 26th.

If you've never attended a house concert, no need to be intimidated.  It's simply that, a concert in a house.  We move out the furniture, bring in a small sound system, lights, and chairs, and invite people in for food, drink, and music.  It's in your face up close music, with a chance to interact and meet the artists as well as the meet other concert-goers.  You reserve a seat and give a suggested donation to the artist (usually $15/person) at the door.  It's great fun.

Sarabeth Our upcoming concert for which reservations are being accepted now is Sara Beth Geoghegan, who will be with us on Friday, September 18th, at 8:00.  Sara Beth, a relative unknown, has recorded a very authentic and beautiful record of her own songs entitled Tired of Singing Sad Songs.  You can find out more about Sara Beth, listen to her music, and book a reservation, on our concerts page here.  Or read my review of her record here.  But hurry. . . seats tend to go fast!  Feel free to share this link with a friend, on facebook, and invite others to come.  The photo?  NO, she's not mad about anything, just thoughtful.  Actually, she's funny!  But you'll have to come to the concert to find that out.
