If you are a musician interested in performing at Patchwork, message me here as well. I do receive many inquiries so if I fail to respond to your message, my apologies – emails do occasionally get lost in the inbox.

A Patchwork House Concert is a special experience. It’s a chance to really listen to live music by great Canadian and international artists in a relaxed, intimate setting. It’s kind of like having your favorite artists play in your living room. Heck, that’s exactly what it is! We invite musicians in fairly regularly and our audiences listen…
Tickets average $20 and must be purchased ahead of time via EventBrite. (If you are not comfortable purchasing tickets on line you may make other arrangements.) We do this to plan seating and manage expectations. All the proceeds go to the performers.
Shows generally start early (at 8 pm) so we begin welcoming guests around 7:30 pm to allow everyone time to get a soft drink (or if you have brought your own, something stronger), grab a snack, find a seat and get comfortable. Usually there are 2 sets with a break in between for enjoying some refreshments, socializing, and maybe having a chat with one of the artists. CDs and other musician merchandise are often available for purchase so it is wise to bring a little cash with you.
Why do we do this? Well, we love listening to live music in small spaces. We love the little bit of extra chaos this brings to our lives and the fact that we are supporting hard-working musicians. We love seeing old friends and meeting new people. We hope to see you soon!
