House Concerts Of The Past, Play Anew


EAST STROUDSBURG, PA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — An interesting cultural artifact, recalling quiet music performances of the past, "House Concerts" are increasing in frequency, lending openings for business opportunities as the movement matures.

As part of the ConcertsInYourHome.com network ArtMusicCoffeehouse.com has been presenting shows of acoustic musicians in home concerts.

The network has been featuring concerts in a quiet, intimate setting in the East Stroudsburg, PA home of musician Don Slepian and theater director Jan Julia.

Functioning like the old "underground railroad", touring folk, country, and world musicians get a home-cooked meal, a bed for the night, some money from the door, and a rest between higher profile big city gigs.

Technology comes into play with live video streaming and Skype webcam interactions, making this practice of the past, a modern and advancing live performance phenomenon.
