Climate Now - for our future

Host a Climate Gathering

House concert

Hosting a Climate Gathering in your home, meeting place or at a participating venue with singer/songwriter, Ian Booth, is a great way to have a good time, and to help the Asheville region become a climate change leader. Enjoy good music, stories, occasional guest musicians, and interesting information when Ian presents a short introduction to lifestyle equilibrium. It's easy and fun, just like hosting a house concert! Here's what you can expect.

What comes next:

First, contact us to arrange a date. Now comes your guest list. "Partiers" may not do well at a house concert. This helps minimize distractions for those who are there to enjoy the music and banter with the musician, and insures that all guests have a quality experience.

We can provide a PDF that you can use as an invitation, or you can create an invitation of your own and send it to your friends, neighbors and co-workers. It's a good idea to ask guests to R.S.V.P.

Nuts and bolts:

We'll ask for a suggested donation of $15 per person and a minimum of 15 guests to cover the cost of the event. If you prefer some other arrangement, we're happy to consider that too. Ian will also welcome tax-deductible contributions to the Blue Ridge Institute and it's helpful to provide an easily accessible place to put "the pot" for tips or other support.

House concerts are non-smoking affairs, so it is important to have a designated smoking area for those who would like to smoke.

The best times for the musician to socialize with guests are during the break and immediately following the concert.

Here are some examples of room set-up.

That's pretty much it! Thank you so much for your interest and for your support! Contact us today!
