Concerts

House concerts are an old and current way of hearing music–socially, in a comfortable place without too many distractions. At Fifth Street, concerts are upstairs in a beautiful room with great sound.

The music is acoustic (unamplified instruments and voices), generally traditional American or international, of all types. Chair seating and folks are welcome to bring food/drink to share.

Reservations are necessary to assure you a seat and made by calling (510) 525-9248, or via email at fifthstfarms@gmail.com.

Doors open at 7:00, music at 7:30. Cost is $20; all proceeds go to the musicians.


  • Chris Acquavella, mandolin–Saturday, April 22

    Chris Acquavella (website here) explores the depth and breadth of the mandolin. Originally from San Diego, Chris lives in Mainz, Germany, and has impressed audiences all over the world. In addition to his mastery of the instrument, his compositions have been performed by dozens of other instrumentalists and chamber groups, and Chris continues to teach internationally. His music is cross-border and transformational, and I’m excited to present him to Bay Area audiences.

    See the Concerts page to make reservations.
