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 Redding area. You just need to contact the host and ask to be invited.

Many churches and non-profit community groups around Redding host occasional coffeehouses that feature traditional folk musicians and other acoustic artists as a way of bringing the community together. Several local libraries also host free concerts that are open to the general public.

In addition, live acoustic music can be heard in many small listening rooms, theaters and local vineyards and breweries in and around the Redding area. Restaurants and cafes in the area also host nationally touring musicians.
