R.I.P. Canyonfolk House Concerts El Cajon: 2003–2011

There are only two more Canyonfolk House Concerts scheduled for the El Cajon home of hosts Bill and Shirlee McAndrews, who are ending the series they began in 2003.

If the name “house concert” doesn’t make it clear, they explain it’s “just what it sounds like. We book a performer, set up chairs, sound and lights and enjoy a pot luck dinner before the show. It's an intimate, smoke-free evening of music. All money collected through the suggested donation at the door goes to the performers.”

“We open our doors to people who love music and want to experience the music in its purist form. All are touring and accomplished national touring artists.”

Berkley Hart will play the Harbison Canyon home’s penultimate show on Saturday, September 17. [email protected]
