Truthfully, house concerts have been around as long as folk music itself. Before there were venues dedicated to music, concerts would take place in churches, meeting houses, barns, homes, you name it! Music was not only a form of entertainment, but also a means of spreading news and culture.
Today, house concerts are not uncommon in the folk world. There are house concert series all over the country, often times hosted by families dedicated to converting their homes into semi-professional venues on a regular basis.
We here at team 'Get Folked' think Adam Ezra Group fans pretty much represent the very best that the world has to offer, and 4 years ago we decided to convert you amazing people into house concert hosts. We experimented with our first house concert tour sending Adam into the homes of 30 fans around the country. It didn't matter that most of them had never heard of a house concert before. If people were crazy enough to try it, we were crazy enough to say yes. The experiment was not only a success, but has now turned into an annual tradition that is metaphoric of everything we believe about the power of community.
Starting in January, Adam will spend 2 months playing in a different living room every night. These concerts are a chance to hear unreleased songs & the stories behind your favorites, different arrangements of songs done by the group, and songs written by some of Adam's favorite writers. Not only is 'The Get Folked Tour' a chance to learn more about Adam and his music, but it's also an opportunity to connect to other AEG fans in your area.
Don't be shy!!
Most of these concerts will be open to the public, so check the tour page when the shows are posted and come check it out!
