At age 25, Tentrees wrote his first song and learned his first guitar chord, eventually graduating to dobro and harmonica, touring and recording.
"Tentrees’ delivery is so relaxed and unpretentious it’s impossible to not get drawn into his world, sounding like a young John Prine."
– NO DEPRESSION
His music--as both a solo artist and with cult legends The Rugburns--has enjoyed long stretches in the Billboard top ten, gobbled up acres of mainstream radio and appeared in scores of television shows, commercials and movies.

Being a Monday. Pot luck meet and greet at 6pm with music at 7pm.
Sam has been our most requested artist over the years. His Fresh Air interview with Terry Gross brought him to the attention of the world this year but to those in our small world of folk music he has been much loved for many years. Sam is a poet who uses music to lift his words to greater heights.
This will be one of the best shows of the season. Really.
We have another treat. Harpeth Rising. This trio of remarkable women will take your breath away. Unapologetic genre-benders, they fuse Folk, Newgrass, Rock and Classical into a sound that is organically unique.
"Tender virtuoso violin solos...Andrews Sisters like harmonies...Harpeth Rising play their cards with class and conviction."
– Lee Zimmerman, No Depression
Then returning to our little stage is Rebecca Loebe. She played just 2 years ago to a packed house and we have had many requests to bring her back again. This is a Easter Sunday show so bring your guests and your Easter eggs for a night of fabulous music.

The Eureka House, a non-profit concert series, began in the fall of 2004. It arose out of a love of good music and songwriting. We also have a venue, the Eureka Springs Unitarian Universalist Church, which is intimate and possesses fabulous acoustics. We decided to do mid-week bookings so top flight performers would be able to stop over in Eureka Springs on their way to bigger venues. Over the years two things have happened: we have developed a knowledgeable and appreciative audience for good performance and songwriting; and, our reputation has grown to where today performers of renown seek us out. They want to come to Eureka Springs House Concerts and see what the buzz is all about.
We seek to present good music year after year plus be faithful to our motto: "We'll have you home and by 10:00 PM."
