Frequently Asked Questions!
What is the Duncan Manor Songwriter Series?
The Songwriter Series are unplugged, intimate house concerts in the parlor of Duncan Manor featuring talented local and regional songwriters. The atmosphere provides a listening crowd for the musician and exclusive access to the artists by the guests. Each show is limited to 40 tickets to provide a more personalized experience for each guest. Musicians will perform in the parlor, which opens up to the Grand Staircase in this 1860’s Italianate manor. Guests can tour the manor inside and out when doors open at 7pm. The musicians will perform from 8:00-9:15pm. Scroll down the page to view the poster that lists all the musicians and dates they will be performing. (Learn more about the history of Duncan Manor here.)
Why does it cost $30?
The ticket price for a seat at one of our Songwriter Series shows is determined by the expenses required to put on the show (musician performance fees, sound engineer, rentals to accommodate guests) and our need to raise funds for the restoration of Duncan Manor. Some fundraising events in the community cost more, some cost less. Only being able to sell 40 tickets per show due to the intimate space is a limiting factor for us. We hope you’ll see the value in supporting local artists as well as the restoration of the Manor. The ticket price includes a tour of the manor before, during and after the performance that evening! Some of the projects we are raising funds for include heating and cooling, roof and chimney maintenance and reconstruction and rebuilding of the porches. Help us show this house some love!
Why do I have to purchase my ticket in advance?
Due to the limited number of tickets and space available, all tickets need to be purchased in advance online here. Duncan Manor is a private residence, and all guests must be on the guest list in order to attend the Songwriter Series. Your online ticket purchase ensures you’re on the list!
Are refreshments available?
All concerts are BYOB. We are unable to provide accommodations (cups, ice, etc) for alcoholic beverages. Consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors is prohibited.
