It's true that house concerts (and backyard in the summer) are happening here in the USA. I'm going to a house concert this month (fiddler Liz Carroll in Chico CA; I'll also see Arlo Guthrie in April in a big hotel in Reno). To set one up the artist needs to be known a bit. I've seen people go to festivals and public gatherings, busk for recognition, and hand out a flyer giving interested listeners contact info and set it up that way.
