Upcoming (Public) Holiday House Concerts

High 48s Public Holiday House ConcertIs 2014

We just kicked off our holiday house concert series last weekend with two shows to packed houses (literally), and now we have a solid month of house concerts ahead of us.  We had so much (both the band and the audience) that we just might make this a High 48s holiday tradition going forward.

While most of the house concerts are private, we’re happy to say that we do have a few that will be open to everyone, and we’d love it if you’d join the party.

On Saturday afternoon, December 6, we’ll be playing a holiday “house” concert at That Cooking School in beautiful Lilydale, MN (805 Sibley Memorial Highway). Two sets of bluegrass plus pizza, beer and wine — if that doesn’t sound like fun to you, check your pulse! Doors open at 12pm, music starts at 1pm. To make a reservation, call Alex Niemer at 651-249-7287.

Just down the river a few clicks, we’ll be doing another public holiday house concert over at the Saint Paul Yacht Club December on December 11. Doors at 7pm, music at 7:30pm. There will be a dessert and hors d’oeuvres pot luck, so bring a dish, if you wish. Call Roger Anderson at 651-747-6068 to make a reservation. Click here for a map to help you get to the gig (the SPYC is a little tucked away).
