Live, in-person shows are back!
After a two-year pivot to online shows during Covid 19, the Home Routes 2022/2023 season cautiously shifts back to live in-person shows.
People will surely be excited to get back to join their neighbours for world-class live folk and roots music in their communities. For everyone’s comfort (and more space for dancing!) this season will pivot from circuits of house concerts to a focus on community hall venues. We are excited at this opportunity to partner with communities across Canada in launching the coming season of world-class live folk music concerts.
We are very excited to be relaunching our series of live & in-person shows, something our hosts and audiences have missed very much.
Home Routes is still accepting new community hosts for the coming 2022/2023 season of concerts
Home Routes is trying something new for the coming 2022/2023 touring season! We are looking for community partners across Canada to join us in becoming local Home Routes hosts, by bringing world-class folk music to your home, town hall or neighbourhood cafe! This enables a true collaboration between Home Routes and local partners who are interested in cultivating folk music & culture.
Interested in Becoming a Host?
Join communities across Canada by bringing world-class live folk music to your town or neighbourhood!
Folk Music Concerts in Communities Across Canada
Home Routes/Chemin Chez Nous was founded in 2007 with the direct purpose of building more infrastructure for Folk Musicians to play more concerts in more communities across Canada. This was achieved by partnering with local community members to create a network of hosts across the country who donate their time and homes, or find appropriate venues to host folk music events in intimate and unique settings.

As always, we will feature a diverse array of top-level artists at various stages of their careers, travelling across the country this coming fall.
Home Routes/ Chemin Chez Nous works with artists within the acoustic music framework of all genres, ages, and at various stages of their careers.
Unlike most organizations that book musicians, we do not consider an artist’s popularity, or high numbers on their social media feeds, album sales, or who their agent or publicists are. It is 100% our belief in them as musicians, writers, and entertainers, and whether or not we think they will be good house guests!
The Travelling Goodtime
Medicine Show Podcast
Proudly presented by Home Routes: The Travelling Goodtime Medicine Show, a series of 5 concerts each featuring a variety of amazing Canadian talent.
These podcasts include content that describes online concerts. Please note that as of September 2022 we will be returning to an in-person model for our shows!
Home Routes / Chemin Chez Nous acknowledges that we operate on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe, Ininew and Dakota peoples, and on the homeland of the Metis nation. We have produced thousands of concerts across Canada, a land home to well over 600 First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities.
