House Concerts


Upcoming House Concerts ~ Past Performances


Occasionally, Yellowknife can play host to traveling folk musicians.  When a musician 'passes' through our community, we like to try hosting a House Concert.  House Concerts  are real concerts held in private homes.  This results in a very intimate, wonderful experience for both the performer and the audience.  Audiences are naturally small, due to limited space, and generally the performance is acoustic.





There are no upcoming concerts planned at this time.

2014:  June - Fawn Fritzen & Grant Simpson

Hailing from Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Fawn and Grant stopped in Yellowknife en route to a festival in Iqaluit to perform one evening of easy listening jazz.  The concert took place out on a patio overlooking Yellowknife Bay and everyone could soak up the midnight sun rays while being treated to the soothing effects of Fawn's vocal dynamics and Grant's playful piano playing.  See their PDF Bio here.

2014:  April - Ceilidh Friends:  Paddy Tutty Celebratory concert

When Ceilidh Friends heard that Saskatchewan ballad singer, Paddy Tutty, was seriously ill, the group wanted to do something to show support.  Paddy has been a musical influence for the group since its conception.  The concert was in part a fundraiser, and in part an opportunity to say thank you for the tremendous mark Paddy has made on the traditional folk community in Canada.  Each member of the group took turns singing songs either learned from or inspired by Paddy, or which are associated with her in some way.
