I love playing House Concerts. They are a completely different experience from a club show. All of the artifice is stripped away. No stage, no dressing room, no barrier between the performer and the audience. The shows seem like one step closer to the way music was intended - an artist traveling from town to town, telling stories and making friends.

I would love to perform in your house. Most of you would prefer to have an event on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so I generally try to do 2 or 3 in a small radius in a weekend (flights, rental cars and gasoline are getting expensive!) My fee, which includes travel expenses, is flexible if I can book 2 or 3 consecutive nights. For a one-off, my fee is also dependent on travel expenses. Sometimes my fee is covered by a generous host, other times it's a charity event and donations are collected. Sometimes it's a public event and tickets are sold. It's all up to the host.

Could it be that simple to open your living room to friends and fans and then have a face from your record collection come to life? It really is that easy. Just email me directly at walter@waltersalashumara.com and we can discuss dates and details.

Thanks a million,
