Great venues build a sense of community.

“So, back in late July through the start of August (2016) – I experienced my first-ever house concert tour. This was a huge deal for me because I have never been on a tour dedicated to promoting and performing my music (I’ve always backed other artists on tour), and I have never performed in a true listening room environment. This tour was a game-changer! The ultimate experience of the new “concert culture.” There is no going back! Hal Newman has created something truly remarkable and special. Stanstead House Concerts Network is leading the charge on a new and improved concert culture/concert experience. Being able to break bread and get to know your audience before the show is such a beautiful experience. Hal has successfully merged the world between artist and audience. Also, the man makes a mean cappuccino! From the moment we stepped into his beautiful home – he treated us like members of his family! Thank you to Hal for this beautiful opportunity… and a special shout-out to his beautiful wife (Dianne) and daughters (Sophie and Emma) for being excellent hosts. I truly cannot wait to come back!” – Amanda McCoy (Nashville TN)
