Open Ears Concerts presents live music performances that explore the intersection of Art, Spirituality, and Activism. We also strive to present diverse genres and styles of music in a family friendly listening room environment, and to provide a fair and reasonable payment to the artists for their work. The concerts are held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, a fully inclusive and progressive Christian community. We are located on Wells Branch Parkway, just west of IH-35, at the corner of Wells Port Drive. We have a potluck meal before the show, so feel free to bring a dish to share. Unless otherwise stated, shows are the first Saturday of each month, September through May, with potluck starting at 6 PM, music at 7 PM, and $15 suggested donation.

As the second daughter of a country music historian and a Jewish poet, Americana musician and songwriter Raina Rose revels in sharing with you her beautifully twisted, yet refreshingly optimistic perspective on the world. Her unique voice and exceptional guitar playing transcend age, gender, and generation. Raised in Los Angeles and Portland, OR, Raina now calls Austin home. She, Andrew Pressman (husband, bassist, producer), and son are featured in the FOLK documentary film that is receiving great audience and press reviews. Her latest album, “Caldera,” is a beautiful work that bridges the gap between folk and pop, inviting, nurturing, and rewarding the vast audience of all thinking persons who love Good Music.
Doors and potluck at 6 PM, show at 7 PM. $15 suggested donation, but none turned away.
