Gary’s House Concert Series is excited to introduce you to Trae Sheehan.
Trae contacted me about doing a House Concert about 9 months ago. His e-mail included a brief bio, a link to his website and a couple songs on YouTube. I listened to one of his concerts on YouTube. He performed at the City Winery in New York—an amazing venue. (Video Below).
After you see this video, you will see why I invited him. Trae’s music is full of imagery and storytelling. He crosses several genre from Folk to Classic Rock with a bit of Country.

Trae Sheehan is a self-taught singer/song writer originally from the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. Like so many of the up and coming Artists — He now calls Nashville Home.

“I make music to tell stories. They teach us right from wrong, give us something to cling to in hard times, and show us that we’re not alone in the world. I want everyone to feel that way when they hear my music”

Support the Arts or they will go away…. and we will be forced to listen to each other.

The next House Concert (after this one) will be Adam Travis on  August 3rd.  I am working on an out-door concert weather permitting.    

I have a couple other New Artists in the works.  Sofia Talvik will will be back in the USA doing an East Coast tour in 2020 and I have her tentatively booked for October 2nd 2020.   

Let me know if you want me to invite anyone else back or if you have an Artist for me to consider.   

“You” are as much a part of the success of this House Concert series as I am so let me know what you think.

When some up and coming bands tour, they will schedule House Concerts in between gigs as they travel across the country. It helps cover their travel costs and many Artists love the personal setting.

A long time ago I attended my first house concert for a band I followed since Med-School. It was an amazing experience. It is my favorite way to see live music… and it’s always music I love. I have been hosting them since we moved to our Woodbine home. I usually do 4 a year.

Variety is the Spice of Life

I try to find different styles of music, ranging from indie rock to folk, bluegrass and Celtic. The Artists often discuss the rich history of the genre, answer questions and socialize during the “Pot Luck” party and intermission. 

Where else would you be able to see National and International Artists up-close and personal.  Find them on YouTube.  I will update this page as it gets closer.

Pot Luck

Plan Ahead…

When I host a House Concert, the music is usually preceded by a “Pot-Luck” gathering/party. Everyone is asked to bring something to eat or drink—to share. The Food/Drink people bring usually makes it interesting. You get to meet some fun people and socialize with the artist.  Bring your favorite dish or appetizer – we all have something we’re famous for. Something ethnic, something different… Or bring some wine, beer or soda.

We usually have 20-30 people show up—so there’s a great variety of food and drink. I usually donate 3-Liters of Sangria, a 12-pak of beer and some Chips to start it off…. I also make Pulled Pork BBQ. I smoke and slow cook it with mesquite for 20+ hours on a Green Egg grill. It is my “signature dish”, but it’s not enough to feed a crowd.

⇒ Bring Your Favorite Drink ⇐

My Bar is stocked, but I try not to have it raided. It often does…. I might have to start clearing it out before shows – which would be sad. I can’t charge if you drink from it, but you can, on an Honor System, Donate to the bar at the slot machine.

The $15-$20 donation I collect at the door — all (100%) goes to the artist.

Please don’t consider it an OPEN BAR.
