Yes, these are a tremendous way for singer-songwriters to be heard, and to connect to their listeners in a cosy atmosphere.

A friend of mine in Rotterdam hosted a very active American singer-songwriter a few years ago. There were about 22 people present, and - as well as paying a small 'entrance fee' - everyone had brought something to eat and drink (to share). We loved being able to talk to the singer, and to learn about the different kinds of house-concert experiences she had had during her travels, as well as about the inspiration behind some of the songs. It was a wonderful evening.

I hope she'll come back to the Netherlands one day. i've invited her to stay at my home, and to perform here.
