This is wonderful. Please add me to any mailing lists for house concerts. I like most types of music, especially Americana, folk rock, music with social commentary and classical. Thanks

Hi Linda,

My name is Seth Cutler. I also host house concerts. My husband and I do them In Los Angeles. We just hosted Melanie (Beautiful People, Look What They’ve Done To My Song Ma, Brand New Key, Lay Down Candles In The Rain) yes that Melanie who performed at Woodstock.

http://www.melaniesafka.com/

She performed with her son Beau for almost 2 1/2 hours. She is a legend and truly provided a night of magic.

She is in LA for a while. She will be in your area for two shows, Aug 20 and Aug 21.

Wondering if by chance you have space in your calendar to host a house concert with her Friday, August 19.

I promise you this will be a night to remember.

Thanks,
Seth
