Click HERE to see Anne E's tour schedule and coordinate your House Concert date. Bookings made on a date along Anne E.'s planned tour route work out especially well, as travel costs can be reduced or eliminated, but contact us if you do not see a date near your home.
Most hosts suggest donations for the event, generally $20 per guest, to compensate the artist for her performance. For a solo acoustic performance, the minimum fee is $500 plus overnight home or hotel accommodations.
Anne E's Trio or Full Band may also be available to perform, let's discuss.
