If you've never experienced hearing talented musicians perform in a small, intimate environment, you are in for a treat.
House concerts are a growing trend across the country, where people invite friends and neighbors into their homes for an up-close concert experience. And there are many house concerts being held in and around the Mountain View area that you can check out - you just need to contact the host and ask to be invited.
Several churches and non-profit community groups around Mountain View host occasional coffeehouses that feature traditional folk musicians and other acoustic artists as a way of bringing the community together.
In addition, live acoustic music can be heard in many listening rooms, small theaters and local vineyards and breweries in and around the Mountain View area. Restaurants and cafes in the area sometimes also host nationally touring musicians.
