House Concert Mailing List

Be the first to learn about our upcoming house concerts!

The Take Note! Music House is a house concert venue near downtown Barrie, ON (after operating for several years in Orillia), presenting acoustic roots music of many varieties – music we really like and are excited to share with our friends and community.

If you've never been to a house concert before, it's a great way to get to know a musician, as well as your neighbours!  We usually have the artist play a set, then gather in the kitchen for pot-luck snacks before set two, and then usually end up chatting and eating again until we kick everyone out! ☺

Our concerts are SOCAN-licensed (thus allowing our artists and their writers to generate more income via royalties – YAY SOCAN ROYALTIES!!!).  Other than a small percentage to cover the licensing fee, we receive nothing, zero, zip, nada from your donation to the artist, nor any of the artists' merchandise sales.  This is a labour of love, to help support some of our musical friends and introduce our community to the music we love.

If you are an artist interested in performing, please visit our Applicants page for more information on how we run things and what we're looking for.

We've got some photos from past shows (and details about upcoming ones) on our Concerts page – check it out!

Our house concerts are licensed by SOCAN – further supporting our musicians and the folks who write the songs!
