Subject: Folklore: House concert series in Ulster County, N
From: GUEST,John Redman
Date: 16 Mar 10 - 09:16 AM

I'm beginning a series in Wallkill, near New Paltz, NY. I have John Flynn starting it on April 16th, Steve Gillette and Cindy Mangsen on May 16th, Cliff Eberhardt on June 13th, Rik Palieri on July 18th, Magpie on Aug 8th, Jay Mankita on September (attending on April 16th), et cetera through February 2011. My house holds 25 and I provide dinner for free. My deck holds 40 and will get some use in the Summer. My first is now ALMOST booked and will bust my hump to be
booked a month in advanced for everyone. I am booking only well known performers to start until I build a reputation, then some emerging/visiting artists. My walls will display rotating visual art from Ulster County artists. The principal help I need is in building a list-serve for future outreach. I have done everything including handbilling to get this one started. I have ads in the Hudson Valley Music news and the New Paltz local and have inveigled local folk
musicians for mailings to their lists. I have joined and I have good rapport with the most prominent folk radio station in the area and am friends of Jay and Molly. I learned this 'trade' from Jonathan Parsons in Old Lyme whose 20 year series runs in Stonington, Ct. I am on MySpace (, ReverbNation and FaceBook. I have
attended the house concert workshops at FalconRidge and elsewhere. I have made myself ready for this for many years as I have volunteered at about 350 festivals over the last 20 years, getting to know many performers through repeated viewings and personal service as a volunteer. I am getting great advice and support from Sol Zeller on a daily basis. He's great and a friend-I-have-not-met. Dick and others on this site probably can help, too, and I thank you in advanc.

Hi John,
         Thank you for the compliment. All of us house concert presenters help each other out. We are a community within ourselves even though we are all part of the greater folk music community.

One of the methods that I employ to build audiences is to attend other presenters house concerts where they allow me to display my flyers and even make an announcement to their audiences as long as their dates do not conlict with mine. I in turn will display their flyers at my concerts and allow them to make announcements when they are in attendance at my shows.

I have reciprocal agreement in place such as this with hosts like Amy Blake in Livingston, NJ, Lois & Greg Syrek in Belvedere, NJ, John Ziv in Sparrowbush,NY, and Ildiko Mary Mester in Milford, PA.
You are welcome to join the group. We will also put up a link to your house concert series on The Borderline website in the vey near future.

OK, I found my original thread, after all, thanks to Sol Zeller's prompting. I have to learn the searching techniques peculiar to MudCat.
