Becky at Karl Anthony Harmony Playground Concert

7/21/2014

What a terrific time we had at our Karl Anthony concert.  He treated us to some old favorite tunes, brand new songs, and many interesting and inspiring  personal stories about his travels and his family. He brought some new folks to Harmony Playground as well.  Even our lovable pooch, Becky, stuck around to enjoy the show, relaxing and groovin’ with the crowd.  What a terrific time we all had!


6/16/2014Peter Bolland at Harmony Playground House Concert

Did you make it to our Peter Bolland concert we hosted?  It was beautifully pleasing acoustically, visually and with the kind of “reaching into the heart” that is unique to the intimate venue you can find in house concerts like Harmony Playground. We ended the evening with Peter and Jacqueline singing a gentle, almost reverent version of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah.

There is nothing quite like hearing artists up-close and raw, seeing them look you in the eye and hearing their story. Not only was the concert warm and wonderful, but seeds of new friendships were already taking root.  If you haven’t yet been to a house concert, give it a whirl.  We’d love it to be with us.  You might be surprised how wonderful the experience turns out to be.

Did you miss our January house concert with Teri Wilder?  It was a wonderfully good time!

Not only did we enjoy a delicious smorgasbord of wonderful dishes and kind-hearted guests, Teri treated us to such a lively and engaging concert, we couldn’t keep still or quiet.  We enjoyed clapping and singing along with her as her music warmed our hearts. Teri Wilder plays gong at Harmony Playground House Concert

As an added surprise, she gave us a demonstration of her gong and took us through a mini meditation.
You had to be there to appreciate how special this was.  The concert was warm, intimate, and fun.
