UPCOMING HOUSE CONCERTS
(Links go to the performers' websites.)

Christie Lenée Saturday, October 22, 2022, 8pm
Christie Lenée


Suggested Donation: $20

Singer, songwriter and renowned fingerstyle guitarist Christie Lenée is more than a musician – she’s an experience. Symphonic compositions flow from her fingertips effortlessly, with sound ranging from transcendental folk-pop to virtuosic instrumentals. She won the 2017 International Finger Style Guitar Championship and her recent title of Acoustic Guitarist of the Year 2019 awarded by Music Radar Magazine out of the UK, has launched Christie’s career towards international stardom.

Guitar Player Magazine wrote: “Watching Christie Lenée perform her solo acoustic act is like seeing a firecracker execute a high-wire circus routine while doing flips and juggling flaming bowling pins.” No less than Tommy Emmanuel has been quoted as saying, "Christie Lenée is a fine young guitar player, composer and singer whose depth is surprising in our age!"

The Refugees Saturday, January 21, 2023, 8pm
The Refugees


Suggested Donation: $20

The trio of artists that is The Refugees emerged on the music scene as a verifiably unmatched force of talent, diversity, and experience. Each successful in their own right as a solo artist, Cidny Bullens, Deborah Holland and Wendy Waldman formed their unique and innovative group in 2007 and since that time have been wowing audiences, radio DJs, and music critics alike with their soaring harmonies, indelible musicianship, and unforgettably humorous stage presence. Individually, The Refugees have logged almost four decades in the industry, with more than twenty solo albums and multiple Grammy Award nominations to their credit, featuring musical styles that blend country, rock, folk, blues and Americana. To describe them as eclectic would be an understatement. These three artists have utilized their intense drive and relentless passions to create an entirely new sound.

Cidny Bullens (formerly Cindy) got started as a studio back-up singer for Bob Crewe and then toured with Elton John. Cindy garnered two Grammy Award nominations for her work on the Grease Movie Soundtrack. Cindy's album Somewhere Between Heaven and Earth (1999) won AFIM's Best Rock Album in 2000 and became a worldwide phenomenon for bereaved parents. Deborah Holland began her career as the singer and lone songwriter for the critically acclaimed band, Animal Logic (with Stewart Copeland of the Police and virtuoso jazz-bassist Stanley Clarke). Deborah has released multiple solo albums, including her newest--the stunning Vancouver in 2013. She has scored and written dozens of songs for film and TV and was a long time music professor at Cal State Los Angeles. Wendy Waldman is recognized as one of the leading recording artists and songwriters in music since the debut of her band Bryndle in the 1970s. Wendy Waldman's first album, Love Has Got Me, was released on Warner Bros. Records in 1973 and proclaimed by Rolling Stone to be the “singer-songwriter debut of the year.” More than a hundred of Wendy's songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as Vanessa Williams (“Save the Best for Last”), The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (“Fishin’ in the Dark), and Aaron Neville (“I Owe You One.”). She is highly regarded for her work as a record producer as well, overseeing countless projects in multiple genres, inlcuding albums by Suzy Boguss, New Grass Revival, Ronny Cox, Artie Traum, and John Cowen.

Please note: "Russ & Julie's House Concerts" is simply the name we choose to describe our private parties, in our private home. These parties are NOT a business nor are they a business related activity. They are strictly a hobby for us, and are simply gatherings of our friends and guests to enjoy live acoustic music, fellowship, food (a potluck dessert buffet) and fun. Our concert parties are officially free (or else it might be considered a business), although voluntary contributions (suggested donation of $20 per person) are accepted at the door on behalf of the artists. 100% of all contributions go directly to the performers. By invitation only.
