Point Rock Concerts is a house concert series in Fall River, Nova Scotia. Since it was first started in April 2008, we’ve hosted many local, Canadian, and international performers (see list below).  Our audience base has increased over ten-fold through word of mouth recommendations. The shows are held right in the livingroom, where rows of chairs are set up for about 50 people. We generally use a small sound system. It’s a “listening venue” during the performance, but a kitchen party atmosphere during intermission. Light refreshments are provided at that time (byob); contributions of snacks are not required, but greatly appreciated. Lots of free parking is available on the street.

A house concert is a great opportunity to hear and see the artists up close, and to talk to them in person, or get your picture taken together. CDs are available for sale, and will be signed for you by the artist.  You’ll also meet many interesting people from the audience. Sometimes other  musicians come to the concerts, and now and then they even join the artist on stage for a song or two, which has made for some really fun shows. Come alone, or get a group of friends/family together – many shows are appropriate for all ages – it’s a great evening’s entertainment.

Tickets are usually $20, sometimes slightly more or less (tax included) – see show listings for details. All proceeds go to the performers. Tickets need to be purchased in advance because so many shows sell out, and also to insure that we can meet the performers’ required guarantees. There are no refunds unless the show is cancelled, but you’re welcome to give or sell your tickets to someone else if you can’t come, or, if the show is sold out, you can sometimes sell them to someone on the waitlist.  There is also the option to use your payment for cd purchases, so you don’t lose out, and neither does the performer.

Payment options:  1) Interac e-transfer 2) Cash 3) Cheque
