Jan Hall interviewed Qristina and Quinn on Folk Roots Radio in October, 2015.
Potluck at 6 pm, Music at 7 pm. Contact Tim Lehman at email@example.com to RSVP.

We select bands for Chestnut House Concerts in a variety of ways. Primarily they are bands we have heard perform live and we know they would fit our house concert venue and would be appreciated by our audience. Sometimes though, they are bands that we’ve only read about and listened to through recordings. I follow the Folk Alliance International Conference and make a habit of reading each year’s reviews and highlights. The Small Glories (performing June 15, 2017) and The Mae Trio (performing July 8, 2017) are two such bands.
The Small Glories show filled up quickly and is now sold out. The combination of JD Edwards and Cara Luft is a show full of energy and magic. We’ll see what we can do about having them return to Lancaster for any music fans who are not able to attend.
I first heard about The Mae Trio in 2014 after reading the reviews of Folk Alliance. They were listed as one of the top new acts of the year and after listening for myself, I immediately sent an email inquiry to see when they might be touring the US again. As most good things, booking this band took some time and now over 3 years later we are delighted to host Maggie, Elsie and Anita on Saturday, July 8, 2017. If you would like to attend the show on 7/8, please contact Tim at email@example.com to reserve a seat. As with all our shows there is a potluck at 6:00 pm and the music begins at 7:00 pm. Suggested donation of 15/20 per person.
