Ray Scott bring his brilliant song writing and sense of humor to the stage.

Live Life in Song

Each concert features quality live music performances by professional musicians. Most come from Nashville and are funded through your donation and purchase of merchandise. House concerts have become a primary source of sustainability for many musicians in today's changing digital music environment, and they love the intimate performance setting which can be found only in living rooms and backyards. The suggested donation go 100% directly to the artists. The suggested donation is $20.  Address and gate code are shared in response to your RSVP/Ticket purchase prior to each show. For 2020 we have Lined up some amazing artist, you will definitely want to see.  Bring your adult beverage and your best friend, that's all you need for an amazing night under the stars.  There is generally an hour and half set, while we are in "listening room" mode for the performance. You are welcome to get up, move around, make a drink, we just ask that you be respectful of the "Listening Room" mode we are in while the artist is playing.

You may not recognize the names of all of our performers, but when you hear them you will wonder why they are not "big stars." We hope they all will be some day, but for now, we're just happy they come play great shows in our backyard. Come join us and see what it's all about!

Granville Automatic is always a treat.

Be Inspired By Everything

Bowman Backyard is a laid back venue—shows are held in our backyard under the stars during the Spring, Summer and Fall. (Shows go on rain or shine; we have the space to move indoors if needed).  Doors open 45 minutes before each show allowing time to socialize with one another and also mingle with the artists before the music starts. Remember to bring your favorite adult beverage, we have the tables and chairs!
