Lower Falls House Concerts

Since 2008, musicians have come to our home from Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and throughout the USA, playing over 50 concerts for attentive audiences in an intimate setting.  Food, fellowship, fun and great music make for a very special event.  The suggested donation at the door is typically $15-20, all of which goes to the musicians.  

 

Thanks for supporting live music and hope to see you soon!

Thanks to all of you - musicians and attendees - who have made it such a pleasure to host 10 years of wonderful concerts in Newton Lower Falls.  We look forward to those joining us at our new home in Greenfield.

 

 

UPCOMING CONCERTS:

#54            November 17th  Mike Agranoff

            Pot-luck dinner 6 PM  Concert at 7 

 

MIKE AGRANOFF’s material encompasses traditional ballads and tunes, Tin Pan Alley, contemporaries in the Folk World, heart-stopping spoken pieces, and his own witty pen. It’s delivered with skillful guitar and concertina accompaniment, a telepathic transmittal of the essence of the song, and a sly twinkle in the eye for some truly hilarious songs.

 

 

#55 March 11, 2018  Rani Arbo and Greg Ryan  

                                    3 PM  

 

Rani Arbo and Greg Ryan have other musical endeavors, but they get together from time to time and there is an amazing synergy when they do.  They played for us in Lower Falls to a very enthusiastic audience (see the video below) and we are thrilled to have them join us in Greenfield.6

 

 

#56     March 25, 2018             JP Cormier

                                     7 PM

 

JP is an award-winning Canadian folksinger/songwriter, storyteller and virtuoso instrumentalist.  We were fortunate to spend some time with him at the New Bedford Folk Festival this year and he agreed to play in our home when he was next in New England.  JP is a star in Canada, where he tours coast-to-coast. Here's a sample from New Bedford:

 

  

 

 

 

 

#57   April 22, 2018   Jackie Bristow

                                       Time TBA

 

At once heartfelt and sophisticated, Jackie Bristow combines subtle but beautiful melodies and hooks that hypnotize the listener.  Born in New Zealand but then transplanted to Australia and now the United States with a guitar, suitcase and songs, Jackie travels light but packs a heavy punch.  She will be appearing with her long time collaborator and virtuoso guitarist Mark Punch.
