Welcome and thank you for checking out my house concerts page. Take a look around and please get in touch if you're interested in hosting or just want to find out more!

How it works

  • All you need to host a show:
    • 1) twenty or more friends to attend
    • 2) space for me to play and guests to sit during the show
  • NO UPFRONT COST FOR HOST. Instead, concerts are donations-based
  • Shows can be in living rooms, back yards, porches- anywhere you have room
  • Typical schedule:
    • 7pm food/drink/socializing
    • 8pm seated concert
    • 9pm a bit more hanging out before everyone heads home
  • Provide snacks and drinks if you like or do it BYOB/pot luck style
  • Consider co-hosting with a friend- a great option if you have a good space for the show but aren't sure you can bring enough people or vice versa.

What previous hosts have to say

"Hosting house concerts is such a wonderful way to experience music more intimately and build a personal connection with artists. We were thrilled to host Sawyer's house show at our funky apartment on Baker Street in San Francisco, and invited a mix of friends and acquaintances to hear him play. Not only was everyone blown away by the music, but Sawyer also invited some friends to hop up and play a couple of tunes with him. After the show, the whole crowd sat around the living room together sipping wine and having a big singalong with Sawyer to some of our favorite old songs. It was a magical evening."

"It was so fun to host Sawyer for a house concert! What a great way to bring my friends and family together in a relaxed setting to hear some amazing music."

-Rose (Austin, TX)

"A house concert provides one of the most intimate, relaxed ways to experience live music.  In our case, in a cozy room with some of our closest friends, Sawyer filled the space with warm harmonies, performing straight from the soul. His versatility, whether singing, fiddling, or playing guitar and harmonica, is jaw-dropping. The arc of Sawyer’s performance left everyone in a golden glow, with full, happy hearts. He’s a terrific talent and a terrific guy!”

-Carolyn & Paul (Lincoln, MA)

We hosted a home concert for Sawyer Lawson at our home in Anchorage in the summer of 2016.  It was a snap. Sent email out to about 10 friends and about 25 ended up attending. Everyone came away quite enthused about Sawyer’s music as it was very unique and moving and a breath of fresh air from the usual fare. All of our guests went away quite enthused, having supported this fine young musician!

-Mike (Anchorage, AK)

Hosting our first home concert was an unexpected pleasure and delight. Suggestions provided by Sawyer about how to proceed with success were informative and specific yet left room for creativity based on one's invitees. Our guests, who were across the age span, were thrilled by the accessibility of Sawyer's music and marveled at his unassuming manner and very big talent!
