As an avid accoustic original music fan (see websites for the Kerrville Folk Festival, UncleCalvins coffee house in Dallas and Jefferson Freedom Cafe in Fort Worth), I have been in the perfect listening room. It's a thing called a house concert and they are put on by loyal fans. Usually its just the performing singer songwriter and anywhere from half a dozen to a hundred folks enjoying the music close up and personal. No mics no sound system just the real thing. I have been trying for years to get this sound in my living room using recorded music. This past Tuesday evening I was at a house concert in Dallas with T. R. Ritchie performing at the home of friends who are also involved in this music.
The guitar sound was amazing and TR's vocals were perfect. There was just over a dozen of us there and after enjoying a wonderful meal prepared by our host and hostess we enjoyed about two and a half hours of great music.
