If you're a fan of live music, or a performing musician, you might not think of a stranger's living room as a good choice for a performance venue. But that's exactly what's been happening in one Cedar Falls home for about six years.
Since 2008, Cedar Valley House Concerts has provided traveling singer-songwriters with a place to perform, along with a warm bed, an opportunity to do laundry, and other comforts that artists often miss while on tour. Open to the public, guests are asked for a small donation that goes directly to the artist, plus a side dish or snack to share.
IPR's Tony Dehner recently sat down and spoke with CVHC proprietor Darice Mangin, along with singer-songwriter Danika Holmes, to learn more about the house concert experience. You can learn more about Cedar Valley House Concerts at their website, or on Facebook.
