A Small Gig Where You Live
Hi, my name is David Fee. I am a singer-songwriter from Campbeltown, Kintyre, Scotland and I started HomeSong to encourage the growth of small music gigs and artistic events in people’s homes.
A HomeSong Gig is a bit like indoor busking. It simply consists of an invited audience and a musician ,or other kinds of artist, performing their art in someone’s living room. Homesong brings people together for creative entertainment and friendship right on their doorstep. When you can see the eyes of the artist it causes the song, or whatever form of art it happens to be, to come alive. The audience gets a chance to donate to the artist who, as well as earning some money, is given the opportunity to showcase their creativity to an attentive audience.
Homesong is nothing if not local and, as I live in Kintyre, Argyll, that is the area where I am personally trying to get these gigs going. But, wherever you call home, contact us if you’re interested in becoming a Homesonger (a Homesong host), a Homesinger (a Homesong performer), or simply in being a part of the fantastic Homesong Audiences that make a Homesong gig come alive. Please use this site as a resource for setting up Homesong gigs anywhere. That’s what it’s for. Read the blog and look around this site. Join in!
Cheers for now
There are many other people and groups working towards making music a community changing reality again, instead of the soulless industry it has too much become. I believe that all the best changes happen from the ground up. This is a grass roots project, and it can only live if people get involved and get their hands dirty.
Here’s to dirty hands!
