Dahlonega House Concerts

house concerts

Last week while waiting for our bed and breakfast guests to check in an unexpected guest showed up at our door bringing us fliers to help publicize the Dahlonega house concerts he and his wife provide in their large home nearby. His venue is called Over the Moon House Concerts and features professional musicians performing in his home throughout the year.

You might be wondering what are Dahlonega house concerts? On selected Saturday evenings throughout the year they clear the furniture out of their large living room and add seating for guests to hear great music by bands and solo artists. They open their home at 6:00 pm with the concert starting at 7:30 pm. A pot luck dinner is offered starting at 6:00 pm -so bring a dish if you want to participate in sharing dinner together. The event is BYOB with the house supplying water and sodas.

The Dahlonega house concerts at Over the Moon are offered for a suggested $25.00 cash donation per person at the door with all the proceeds going to the artists. The hosts receive no payment and offer their home free of charge because they love music and people. Reservations are required in advance and the events are adults only.

For 2020 their first home concert will be February 29th and features Rancho Del Trio. The trio consists of Grayson Capps, Corky Hughes and Cary Morin. Other house concerts include Cruz Conteras on March 14, Liz Longley on May 23rd and Michelle Malone July 18th.

Reservations are taken on a first come first serve basis so make them soon at the email listed above in the photo. Last minute reservations may be available if they have cancellations. Send them an email if you need more information as well. Over the Moon does not have a web site but you can find more information on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/overthemoonhc
