Everyone was there to enjoy an evening of music and stories with 3 very talented singer/songwriters - Erin Costelo, Molly Thomason and Ashley Condon.molly-thomason.jpgThumbnail image for Condon.jpg House concerts have become part of the cultural fabric for both musicians and audiences to enjoy an intimate setting sharing music and stories. This one definitely proves that point.

Thumbnail image for ian-bio.jpgNorma.jpgHere in the Maritimes there is a very active House Concert circuit that creates an alternative venue for musicians to perform. Usually in someone's living room with chairs for about 30 or so people ... it's an intimate, casual setting that lends itself to some wonderful music making. We're going to check in on a House Concert held at Boutiler's Point featuring Ian Sherwood and Norma MacDonald. We'll also have a feature with Kris Pope and Dave Scholten, members of the band Acres and Acres. They'll chat about their recent release 'Truth & Sky'.. Tune in Saturday morning at 10 on CBC Radio 2 and 5 after 5 on CBC Radio 1.
