Lower Falls House Concerts

Since 2008, musicians have come to our home from Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and throughout the USA, including Alaska, 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!

UPCOMING CONCERTS:

#53  September 3, 2017  Tracy Grammer and Jim Henry

                      Dinner 6 PM, Concert at 7

   $20     Email lfhconcerts@gmail.com for reservations

 

Our first show in Greenfield and it promises to be very special!  Here's a bit of what to expect from a review of one of Tracy and Jim's concerts:

"Although they gig together infrequently these days, Grammer and Henry have played together since 2003 (from Fairbanks, to Florida, to France, she notes). The Amherst concert showed them to be musically symbiotic (they shouldn’t let geography come between them in joining forces more often). Seated in close quarters, the audience of 75 was wildly appreciative—they knew a dynamic musical duo when they heard it.  Grammer and Henry (a polished vocalist and masterful guitarist) proved above all to be ensemble players. Both emphasized mutual rather than individual musical outcomes. With technique a given, they placed a premium on musical nuance and emotional immediacy. As the evening progressed and the musicians and audience bonded, Grammer and Henry relaxed and played their best."

 

 

#54      October 22, 2017  Genna & Jesse

                                                3 PM 

 

Drawing inspiration from their romantic nomadic lifestyle, Genna & Jesse might best be described as modern troubadours, generously offering listeners glimpses of their always-moving world with something fresh, true and genuinely independent.

#55              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.

 

 

#56    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.

 

#57    Sept 12, 2018       Claude Bourbon        

                                  Time TBA
