How House Concerts Work... A house show or concert is a private concert by an artist, sometimes with another artist, in the comfort of your own home, for you and your invited friends. You can really connect with the artist, see a performance up close, and maybe even request a song. As the host you set the atmospheric stage you want and can invite as many guests as your living room, basement or garden can hold! Julianne loves performing at house concerts... "I have found house concerts to be a wonderful way to connect with music lovers in a more intimate setting. The relaxed ambience of a house concert creates an ideal situation, where there are no distractions for the listeners or the artist and the language of music can flow freely between us ." - Julianne Ankley Julianne brings all the gear she needs to give you a wonderful sounding show.
