LRFest 2019 – 8th annual festival of house concert returns to Tampa Bay.
For Immediate Release
“House Concert” Festival connects music fans with up-close-and-personal performances around Tampa Bay.
The 8th Annual Listening Room Festival features two dozen living room concerts around the Tampa Bay area.
Six international contest winners will play the 24 scheduled house concerts, as well as the Main Showcase (March 29th) at the Palladium Theater in St. Petersburg. This year’s artists are Matthew Fowler, Five Letter Word, Madison Violet, Rissi Palmer, Birch Pereira, and CeCe Teneal & Soul Kamotion. Reserved seats are available ($28, $75 VIP) at the festival website http://www.ListeningRoomFestival.com
House concerts, the core of the festival, stem from a tradition that is hundreds of years old, but has seen a resurgence in the past few decades. Music fans volunteer to host living room concerts, and invite friends to attend an up-close-and-personal show by a professional touring artist. Attendees are asked to make a suggested donation of $15-20 per person directly to the performers.
Living room and backyard shows will take place in the following cities:
- St. Petersburg (11 shows)
- Clearwater (4)
- Tampa (3)
- Tarpon Springs (2)
- Safety Harbor
- Bellair Bluffs
2019 Festival Schedule
- March 27-31 — house concerts around the bay area.
- Friday, March 29 — LRFest Showcase at the Palladium Theater, 7:30pm start.
Festival registrants can be notified of house concerts all year round via a free fan membership to Listening Room Network. More information and tickets are available through ListeningRoomFestival.com.
