His voice weaves incantations, and the guitar is a magic wand in the hands of this extraordinary musician." -The Takoma Park Folk Festival "Visually and musically, Tom is the most compelling presence to emerge in the singer-songwriter genre as I've seen in a long time." -Jim Bessman, Billboard "Tom Prasada-Rao is a rare and brilliant performer. His fine voice and thrilling guitar work hold you spellbound while he heals your heart." -David Wilcox I have loved and been captivated by Tom's music from the first time I heard him back in 2012. He defies simple categorization, because his music spans genres that are completely unrelated, including, for example, American Folk, Indian, Eastern, Pop and more. His lyrics range from uplifting and spiritual to down-to-earth and comical, making you laugh at some of life's challenges and absurdities until they seem downright manageable. Come join us for an enchanting evening of music and stories.

It's pretty simple. We book a performer, clear out the living room furniture (in the winter - the shows are outside in the summer), set up a stage area/sound system and chairs, and invite an audience for an evening of live music. Very similar to a coffee house setting, only in the intimate environment of someone's actual home. I first learned about house concerts back in 2009 when I hosted a Kentucky friend, Mitch Barrett, who toured through Colorado after winning the 2009 Telluride Troubadour songwriting competition. One show and I was hooked, and I've been hosting phenomenal artists in my home for over seven years now! It is a truly wonderful way to experience excellent artists and their music. I'm very excited to bring this type of experience and these musicians to our little part of Colorado. Donations ~ All concert donations go to the artist. Suggested donations for concert seats are $20 and up, on a sliding scale, meaning you are welcome to donate more if you can afford a little more to support live music. When ~ Doors open at 7:30pm. Music starts at 8:00pm. Format ~ There are typically two sets of music, with beverages and homemade desserts shared at intermission. You are welcome and encouraged to bring something to share. There is time before and after the show and during the break to meet the artists and purchase CDs, books, or whatever else they have for you. Rumcake ~ We always have it. It's a tradition, even though we are not exactly sure why. Most of the time that's just how traditions are.
