visions of house concerts danced in their heads.....
With over five years of dedication to the promotion
of house concerts, Paula Fredericks, along with her husband
Mike, continues to maintain, develop and enhance this site and
seek out, listen to and support indie singer/songwriters as much
as possible. Originally from Canso, NS, and a proud Stanfest
supporter, Paula has called the Halifax area home for about 28
years. She keeps busy with contract work in visual
display/merchandising, event decor and marketing. At their home
in the St. Margarets Bay area, Paula & Mike have hosted over 30
house concerts as Lift the Wind Concert Series. In a house on the side of a hill, with a calico
cat, a hundred hostas and dozens of random pieces of paper,
Paula also pursues her passion of songwriting. Many thanks to
Julian West for the months of work in the beginning.
Since July 21, 2006, acousticroof.ca has been a growing network
of house concerts, especially in rural communities, but also in
cities, for the benefit of musicians and audiences. We invite
artists (or their managers) venue hosts, and audiences
to help enhance the Canadian house concert network, and become promoters
concerts. Non-commercial community venues such as community centres
and church basements are welcome to post "host profiles."
