All about House Concerts York:

If you have never been to a show before, here's a great video made by the 'video company 'The Little Less Known' at one of our gigs.

Although very well established in America, house concerts are a relatively new concept here in the U.K. They offer a chance to see great artists who are often only over in the country for a very short time, or UK artists who will fit in a 'secret' gig in between their much larger shows.

Now in our 10th year, and over 350 artists have played here - from solo performers to 6 piece full bands, from all parts of the world. They include Newton Faulkner, Rae Morris, members of Snow Patrol & Razorlight, Kathryn Williams, Dan Mangan, Tom McRae, Jon Gomm, Dan Reed, The Woodentops, Jesca Hoop, Devon Sproule, Sean & Sara Watkins (Nickel Creek), Zoe Keating, to name just a few. Not a normal venue, more like a mix of the Radio One Live Lounge, and hearing every note as if you're sitting in the corner of the artist's recording studio.

If you'd like to come along it's simple:

SELECT a gig - and if places are still available you will see a button to

DONATE to the artist (the minimum donation, normally £10 guarantees your place)

we send out your PERSONAL INVITE - & that's it.

Limited spaces, non-profit making and all about the music not the money!

We do however have to ensure that there are sufficient donations to cover the artist's expenses, or we have to make up the difference out of our own pocket!

All donations are non-refundable, unless we are able to fill your place from the waiting list for that show. We are unable to offer short-notice refunds if the show takes place but you are unable get here for any reason, such as ill health or bad weather conditions.

All concerts are non-smoking, and please bring along your own drink.
