We have occasional house concerts at our home in the north Berkeley hills.  Please contact us for more information, to be added to our mailing list, or for booking inquiries.  linda AT berkeleyhouseconcerts.org, 510-697-4097

“Poplar Playhouse” is simply the name we choose to describe our private parties, in our private home. These parties are not a business nor are they a business related activity. They are strictly a hobby for us, and are simply invitation only gatherings of our friends and guests to enjoy live acoustic music, fellowship, and fun. Our concert parties are officially free, although voluntary contributions (suggested donations generally of $15-$25 per person) are accepted on behalf of the artists. 100% of all contributions go directly to the performers.

Please note that we have three cats, two Cockatiels and an African Grey Parrot.

Linda Oliver & Tom Montgomery
