Learned Place House Concerts represent a cooperative approach to sharing outstanding live music and building friendships nourished by this common interest. Our focus is deliberately on Southern regional music, the heritage we share and celebrate whether native or newcomer to the South. The musical heritage is rich, and we are still exploring it, thus far with a focus on acoustic music that features outstanding singing and memorable musicianship ranging from traditional music and bluegrass to contemporary singer song-writers who sing about the South, its history and transformation. We”ve enjoyed some wonderful singing and story telling, and seen and heard some great playing on guitar, banjo, bass, mandolin and fiddle. This is music of joy and sorrow that speaks to the contradictions of our Southern heritage, touching universal themes of isolation and community, sin and salvation, exploitation and resistance, tradition and change.
