Performing "classics" or coversongs
#1
Hi I'm new here. A lot of my repertoire in not original. In the folk and classical genres it is standard to do what might be considered old favorites or performing a classical piece. I also do pieces from other countries. 
Other genres have very different codes of ethics in this regard. 
Am I ok doing these types of songs in the house concert performance world?

Hi Rochelle! This is a totally personal choice, I think. In the model in which we do house concerts, you are engaging members of your own community to help you advance your career by hosting concerts for you. And no one knows how to engage your community better than you do. Experiment and see what seems to engage people the most!

If you experiment with this and you start to realize more what does or doesn't work, please update this thread with your findings. Good luck!

It is your choice. It's up to you to do things what do you want and comfortable with you.
