About a month ago i had the opportunity to play a house concert here in Portland, opening for Eric Skye and his jazz trio. For those of you that don’t know what a house concert is, its basically where a person has a solo performer or small band give a concert at their house. Sometimes they are amplified, depending on the place, but often times it can be all acoustic. They are usually small and intimate, anywhere from 10-50 people, and its a good way to see a performer in a venue where everyone is there to listen. Often times there will be a potluck dinner beforehand. There is usually some sort of suggested donation for the performer.
I recently got the video footage from the show, and will posting it to my Youtube account over the next few days. Here is the first one, a tune i like to open shows with, Inion Ni Scannlain, written by Donogh Hennesy.
