Listening Rooms

On Tour
Performance Information
Ian Foster
Listening Rooms with Ian Foster is a run of very special shows across the island in August called “House Concerts,” meaning a concert in a home or unexpected venue, with a ticket price, and two sets of music with an intermission. 

The Listening Rooms Tour will feature unique locations, from Winterholme Heritage Inn in St. John’s, to a Garden Centre in Spaniard’s Bay, and the old United Church on Fogo Island. Even in a living room with a balcony in Lewisporte – the house was actually converted from an old Salvation Army Citadel!
House Concert style performances allow up-close and personal interaction with the artist giving people a chance to experience live music in a friendly and interesting environment. Join Ian as he takes the idea of the "house concert," (or ‘unexpected venue’) on the road around Newfoundland to demonstrate the value of music in alternative venues for both the performer and the audience.
