Musical Lairs House Concerts

October 29, 2022

John FlynnJohn Flynn is a singer-songwriter and activist known for his powerful music and tireless efforts on behalf of the lost and the lonely, the shackled and scarred. His career has embodied an authentic troubadour odyssey that moved legendary folk DJ Gene Shay to call Flynn "the most quintessential folk singer in my life," and Deana McCloud, Executive Director of the Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma to write, "John Flynn is the real deal. His work follows in the footsteps of Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Kris Kristofferson, and other social justice troubadours as he speaks the truth and gives a voice to society's disenfranchised. His work fills your heart and opens your eyes as he continues to walk the walk of a true advocate for equality, justice, and peace."

John is also a long-time friend of Musical Lairs and was here at the beginning - playing during our first season in 1997 and many times since. John's concerts are always nights to be remembered.

COVID-19 Protocols

Until further notice we will observe the following safety protocols:

  • There will be no communal food. The dining room will be closed. Bottled water will be provided. Attendees are welcome to bring snacks for themselves, but not for sharing.
  • EVERY attendee must show proof of full vaccination (i.e. two weeks post final vaccine). NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • At this time, masks are optional for attendees.

Fans and air purifiers will be in use throughout the evening and weather permitting, outside air will circulate. People will be encouraged to stay in family or group pods and the sun porch will be used to provide more space.

ALL OF THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE. At the time of this writing (11/2021), booster shots are now available, children are getting vaccinated, and the numbers on the Main Line continue to trend in a hopeful direction. Should that trend change, shows will be postponed or cancelled. Thank you for your cooperation during this difficult time.

Upcoming Performers

What is a house concert?

Simply put - it's live acoustic music in a private living room with an audience of friends, both new and old, and great food that everyone brings to share. The music is outstanding - these are very talented musicians. Most tour professionally, usually nationally, some even internationally. More...
