As the presenter puts it, "We present these shows in our home...in the living room or preferably in the back yard looking at the mountains. We discourage overuse of alcohol, talking during the show...and smoking is definitely unacceptable. The music is never loud; rather it would be termed intimate. Most shows will have a Pot Luck snack and great talk beforehand." Arrive 4:00 for pot luck. Showtime 5:30. $15-$20 suggested donation

Coffeehouse of the Absurd comes to West Orange. That's the duo of John Forster and myself. John's one of the funniest singer-songwriters this side of Tom Lehrer. The two of us will be presenting an all comedic program of songs, stories, and lots and lots of laughs. I played at the Peckman/Kraus house back in April, and my funny material went over so well, that they've asked me to come back again with John to double the fun. Tickets $20. Arrive at 7:30 for the concert or 6:00 for potluck dinner.
What's a "house concert", you ask? Pretty much what it sounds like: a concert in someone's home. the most intimate way to hear music. Here's a short video that describes the concept.

As of this Fall, The Folklore Society has relocated its concert series to The Lyceum, Alexandria's History Museum. This beautiful old structure was built in 1839, and designed as a lecture hall. Most recently renovated in the 70s, the hall retains its wonderful acoustic properties, which permit unamplified performances to be clearly heard throughout the hall. It's located along a free trolly shuttle that runs every 15 minutes from the King Street Metro station. Tickets are $15.

This year's panel of songleaders will be headlined by the legendary Bill Staines, whose songs are being sung around more campfires and song circles than just about anyone currently on the Folk Circuit. Rounding out our panel will be Folk Project member performers Christine DeLeon and Scotty Rovner.
