The Garden Party Series: Catherine Feeny and The Challenge of Feral Green

If you're a frequent reader of this blog, you'll probably know that I am a big fan of Living Room Concerts (musicians play for you and your friends in your living room). During the last six months I have managed to organise 3 LRCs all of which were very enjoyable and truly unique experiences. The level of intimacy between you and the music is taken to a whole new level that you'd strive hard to find in any bar or club and the social aspect of a musician turning up at a persons house to share their songs and to meet new people is not only intriguing but refreshing in a time when as a society we are perhaps becoming more insular.

Singer/songwriters Catherine Feeny and The Challenge of Feral Green (more commonly known to his friends as Sebastian Rogers) have embraced the LRC idea wholeheartedly and have been touring the States for nearly 2 months, travelling some 15,000 miles playing to people in almost 50 living rooms. Now that's a pretty impressive set of stats!

This tour hasn't all been strictly living rooms, they also played a show in a secluded garden in LA for a group of people who run the Garden Party Series (which is like an LRC only moved outside onto the patio.) Thankfully this event was filmed and the footage is stunning, check out these videos:

Wow, that's really cool, I like the artists too. You should try hosting a garden party, I bet it's a blast!

I've got lots of plans to put into action for when I come out of hibernation in the Spring :-)
