For almost twenty years we hosted folk / roots house concerts at our acreage home in Strathcona County, Alberta, Canada.   All the concerts were great entertainment for our guests and great fun for us but we realized that the work in hosting was becoming increasingly onerous for us as we age and in 2019 we reluctantly decided to stop before we made a mess of things!


These pages on our web site make up our memorabilia of R.Ouse House Concerts  -  good times and fond memories of our association with our favourite people  -  singer / songwriters of the folk / roots genre and supportive concert guests.


We are proud that we enabled guests to put over $100,000 into the pockets of these passionate and dedicated musicians.
