Welcome to the North End Concert Series, located on the northern end of Old Town Alexandria!  It has been our pleasure and honor to host a few special  house concert events each year with some of our very favorite independent artists.  If you aren't familiar with the house concert thing, you're in for a treat - its a great way to enjoy your favorite music - or discover new amazing artists - in a comfortable and informal setting - our living room!

We have just a few house rules, but we do ask that everyone RSVP via our evite (email us at to get one!).  The ticket price is a minimum donation for the artist - cash at door or paypal in advance -- all proceeds always go directly to the artist.  Bring extra cash for cds and merch!! Get on our mailing list by emailing us - we'll put you on the evite for the next show!!   Facebook

Who's next?!

Stay tuned!

Who's been?!

Dayna Kurtz Fri Oct 12th 2018 8:00 pm
We are so grateful for this amazing and rare opportunity to have the mega-talented Dayna Kurtz in the house!! Truly a magical evening! Dayna's voice just gets more resonate and beautiful - and her new music is fantastic!! If you're lucky enough to get to Jazz Fest this year make sure you check her out with her new band Lulu and Broadsides!
Edie Carey Fri Dec 8th 2017 8:00 pm
So great to have Edie back in the house!! Her voice and songwriting get more wonderful each time we hear her!
Natalia Zukerman & Trina Hamlin Fri Oct 27, 2017 7:30 pm
Wow! What a wonderful night with Natalia Zukerman and Trina Hamlin! If you didn't get here - follow them online and catch the next one!!! Truly special evening - thank you!!
Christine Havrilla Sat Sep 12th, 2015 8pm
Christine's sound is a breath of fresh air! Its always a special time when she's playing - and her new music is tremendous! The creamery sessions, sunset sessions and now the old Church Sessions bring intimacy and beautiful resonance to every note!
Mouths of Babes Sun Apr 26th, 2015 6pm
GO SEE this band - and prepare to fall in love (unless you have already seen them and you know what I am talking about)! Ingrid Elizabeth and Ty Greenstein are the duo that create Mouths of Babes! They have an absolutely mesmerizing kismet together, and individually are both accomplished musicians and singer songwriters.  They played 2 sets for our sold out crowd, and showed us versatile, fun-loving, moving, accessible and simply beautiful songwriting. They played songs from their new EP Faith and Fumes, their prior bands Coyote Grace and Girlyman and from their highly anticipated record coming later this year.  Mouths of Babes deliver, with voices that touch every note with beauty and harmonies that pull you in to the music even deeper.  Their instruments pretty much require their own room, with Ingrid on Bass, drum, harmonica, ukulele and Ty on acoustic and electric guitar and banjo. We are beyond thrilled to have hosted for these two and can't wait to have them back!!
Christine Havrilla Fri Feb 27th, 2015 8pm
Christine Havrilla is on her game. In a big way. Her beautifully resonate voice has control, depth and genuine emotion that takes you on a journey through her brilliant songwriting. Her energy is raw yet controlled on Fortune Teller, Hole in the Ground and Waiting, with lyrics that connect experience and emotions we all know only too well. Her positive energy shines through every note, and through message in songs like Hail and Daffodil. We were also thrilled to hear her new music and can't wait for more!! Christine's guitar work is masterful - incredibly inventive with and without her brilliant looping and adds a depth to her work that deserves serious critical acclaim. Christine's connection with the audience is genuine and engaging, and her following only continues to grow since her return to our coast! Lucky us!!!
Natalia Zukerman & Meghan Toohey Fri Nov 21 8:00pm
What an amazing night with Natalia Zukerman & Meghan Toohey!! We're so in love with Natalia's new record,Come Thief, Come Fire - and we've never heard her sound better - just pure talented awesomeness! Meg Toohey of the Cold and Lovely played some astoundingly beautiful guitar - she is truly an amazing musician, and having her here with Natalia was such a wonderful treat. We hope to have them both back soon! Thank you to all the wonderful guests who brought such warmth and wonderful food - and thank you Natalia & Meg!
Dayna Kurtz Sat Nov 1 2014 8:00pm
Last night, Dayna Kurtz lit up the room with her sultry voice and intoxicating strings.  From acoustic to electric guitar, then banjo and a truly kick ass slide, she held the room in the palm of her hands, and took us through some of the best new music we’ve heard in ages (pre-order this NOW!) as well as her own beloved standards, and those rare gems she does so well from her Secret Canon Series.  We’d need at least a three day concert to hear all of our favorite Kurtz tunes, and she always leaves us wanting more.  We can’t have her back soon enough, and we know we’re not alone when we say that it was a memorable night that we are grateful for.  Thank you Dayna! Pre-order the new album today!
Anne Heaton Sat Jan 11 2014 7:30pm
Singer-songwriter and classically trained pianist Anne Heaton has amassed awards and praise from critics, fellow artists and fans with her songs that are by turns “tender, barbed and spiritual” (Washington Post). Her graceful, vulnerable, and sometimes humorous pop-folk songs have captured audience imaginations for over a decade.
Christine Havrilla Sat Dec 7 2013 7:30pm
Christine Havrilla rocked the house last night with some of the best guitar playing we have heard. Beyond talented guitarist, her voice has never sounded better and her songwriter rings true and full of passion.
She graced us with two great sets, including fantastic new songs, and many of our favorites such as Foolish Lullaby, Daffodil, Take another Look and Hole in the Ground. Christine also delivered ingenious renditions of Folsom Prison Blues and Radioactive. We're glad to have her back on the east coast and look forward to seeing her soon!
AG, Maia Sharp & Garrison Starr! Sat Oct 19 2013 7:30pm
Having AG, Maia and Garrison here was just beyond amazing - these women are fiercely talented. Their song writing is well known in the industry and we can see why - simply brilliant. They played together, sharing the lead in turn and harmonizing beautifully. This was a rare and magical evening that we will not soon forget!!
Meg Hutchinson
Fri June 28 2013 8pm

Meg Hutchinson inspired us with her poetry and wooed us with her music in a very special evening. Her songs are transformative, and take us on a journey that touches the heart and soul... And big news coming from Meg - Winterbloom is featured in a new indy film, and her new record, Beyond That is out now and available on iTunes! We can't wait to see her again - thank you Meg!!

Natalia Zukerman & AG

Sat Apr 20 2013 8pm

What an amazing night with these two brilliant women - Both Natalia & AG have new CDs - Me After You is now on permanent replay status on our pod - absolutely brilliant lyrics and a voice that is just magical and haunting.. Natalia is so many things at once – bluesy jazz folk that is utterly unique and one of kind. Her new live CD is Gypsies & Clowns almost completely captures how amazing she is live. Their art is also phenomenal – we managed to score a couple of fantastic pieces! This was such an amazing night for us – they performed together effortlessly, with grace, humor and brilliance. Thank you AG & Natalia! Check them out yourself if you missed it!
