House Concerts with
Bill Reid or The Bill Reid Trio!
"House concerts are my favorite venue," says long-time blues and Americana performer and Texas singer-songwriter Bill Reid. "They're intimate showcases for the music, everyone's among friends, and there's hardly ever a drunk or a heckler!"
What's a "house concert"? It's your concert! The host invites 15-50 guests to his or her home for an evening of music, snacks, and drink (often pot luck), or may promote the concert as a fee or donation event. We (Fewer Sorrows Music) provide all stage and PA equipment. We'll schedule the concert for your convenience and supply preparation details to make the process fun for everyone. It’s a great way to have a party, celebrate a special event, or even kick off a political campaign! Contact us to make it happen in your home !
Whether you choose Bill solo or the Bill Reid Trio, you and your guests will hear great blues and American roots music. The show often features tunes from the band's recent albums, such as Blues for Lost Dreams, about which national Grammy® Board president Christine Albert wrote, “... world-class musicians ... playing with heart, integrity and respect for the music.”
Bill Reid (guitar & vocals) started playing in Midwestern blues joints and coffeehouses over 50 years ago. His recent albums include Blues for Lost Dreams, Country Blues and Story Songs, and A Place Inside My Heart (with two of his Austin Songwriter Competition winners). Blues for Lost Dreams and Songs for My Family were on the 2013 Grammy® ballot. His recording of "Georgia on my Mind" was nominated for a 2014 Texas Music Award.
Duke Davis (stand-up bass) has played for decades with the likes of Lightnin' Hopkins and The 13th Floor Elevators. He's a seasoned musician who has worked with the very best, and (often with his former band Buckshot) won many Vocalist-of-the-Year and Band-of-the-Year honors.
Rick Boss, Luckenbach's "Harmonica Man," is a Texas legend. (Watch him stop the show with "The Orange Blossom Special" on YouTube.) He's backed John Lee Hooker, the Ben Beckendorf Blues Band, the Mark Searcy Combo, and many others.
