Kristina Olsen at Auburn House Concerts!

I am very excited to announce that Kristina Olsen will be performing in my living room on Saturday, July 16!

I first heard Kristina in 1999 at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center in Santa Cruz. I was actually going to see the show's opener, my good friend Stevie Coyle was performing with The Frontmen. But when Kristina took the stage, I was instantly infatuated. What a gutsy, powerful voice! What side-splitting storytelling! What a range of songwriting! Needless to say, I was giddy with delight when I booked Kristina Olsen for an Auburn House Concert!! Just reply to this email to book your seat and please help spread the word!

Changing E-Mail Software

We have changed our email list software in order to give our friends a bit of control over the mail they receive from us. Originally we simply kept a big old list of emails/names of everybody we knew who had expressed interest in attending a house concert.

This week we are setting up a professional email list service to help us handle the success of the Auburn House Concerts. The new software uses a confirmed opt-in policy to ensure, by email, that subscribers intended to join your mailing list. When subscribers join the mailing list through the subscription link on our Web site, we send them an email message that contains a confirmation link. Subscribers must click the link to confirm they want to be added to your mailing list.

This new policy guards against the possibility that a third-party added the subscriber without their knowledge or permission.

Once on the Auburn House Concerts list you will be able to indicate your interest is any of the following areas:
