Welcome. If you are here at this page you must have some interest in attending a house concert and we hope that you take a chance on what we think is the best way to hear live music. All shows have a recommended donation of $15/20 per person. When you arrive at the event, look for the donation container just inside the door. You can add to the donation at any point during the evening; ALL of the money goes directly to the musicians.
Seats are limited at Chestnut House Concerts so please contact the hosts Tim and Karen Lehman with the number of seats you would like to reserve. Some of the shows do sell out – it is never too early to reserve a seat.There is a traditional potluck at 6 PM before each show, and the music begins at 7 PM. Email Tim at email@example.com or text/call 717-940-9311.
603 W Chestnut is a traditional city row home and we use the space just inside the front door for the stage. For that reason we ask that you enter through the baker’s alley just to the left of the house, through the rear door into the kitchen. Bella, a sheepdog, resides here as well, so please close the gate behind you.
The hosts provide plates, silverware, napkins and wine glasses for the potluck. If you wish to participate in the potluck any food item is perfectly acceptable. Some people love to cook and will bring a homemade hot dish or salad, others have no time or interest in cooking and stop at a bakery for a pie or bring cheese and crackers. Wine or beer are also acceptable potluck donation items. You cannot go wrong and everything is appreciated.
Tim began hosting house concerts when he lived in Portland, Oregon. He moved to Lancaster in 2011 to be with Karen and they have been doing house shows since 2012. They will host their 50th show in 2016.
