House Concert with Singer/Songwriter Leslie Rich from Belfast

  • Nov 9, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Leslie will begin playing around 8:00 PM. Please also bring a favorite appetizer and beverage to share -- multicultural cuisine encouraged!

Chez Valerie is a private home which periodically hosts house concerts and various events. 100% of all proceeds are donated to the musicians. We have wood floors so please bring socks or slippers. Also be advised that cats live here too, so those with allergies have been notified and unfortunately I can't allow service animals to attend either.

Please accurately RSVP with +1 if you're bringing a guest. This is my home so we need to limit the number of guests. Others have been invited through Valerie and Leslie's connections. If the event looks full, be sure to join the waiting list as there are often many later RSVP changes.

About Leslie Rich (

Leslie is a singer/songwriter originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland, where he released two albums on Immortal Recordings (Ire): Geeklove and The Written Lie.

In 2004 he became a permanent resident of Minneapolis, where he met Pete McCauley, Michelle MacGregor, and David Draeger and began a creative partnership with the Hounds of Finn. The primary songwriter for the Hounds, Leslie also composes material for side projects when he finds the time.

Leslie is also the store manager of the newly opened Groove City Guitars store in St. Paul.

Per Leslie, “The event is just about hearing Leslie Rich
originals old and new and my take on choice covers that range from modern rock, contemporary through traditional Celtic and blues.” Since this concert is on a weekend, the format will be pretty loose and we’ll let Leslie play all night if he wants to!

    I saw Leslie last night with The Hounds of Finn and picked up my 'Live at Chez Valerie' CD. I wish I was one of those people who could write a detailed review explaining every nuance of the album. I have but one word: beautiful!

    The transformation has begun and Chez Valerie is getting ready to host The Music Of Leslie Rich tonight! Please take a moment to confirm your RSVP as it looks like we'll have a full house with a big group from the MSP Multicultural Club and many of our friends too. Looking forward to seeing you all in just a few hours!

    Update from Leslie: "This concert at Chez Valerie will be a little different than usual in that Leslie will be performing one set, with no break. There will also be a recording of the performance for purchase, which we are endeavoring to have available for you to take home with you, although, if technology is against us that night, your purchase will be mailed to you the following week. This will be the first solo Leslie Rich recording since 2001's album, 'The Written Lie' and 2012's Time To Be Proud Records re-release of 'Holiday In Cambodia'."
