Join us for the biggest event of LRFest – the Showcase, taking place at the Palladium at SPC! Featuring Spencer LaJoye, Daniel Neihoff, Grace Morrison, and Jenna Nicholls. It’s a truly amazing collection of singer-songwriters to delight you once again. Visit to learn more about this unique festival!

It started as an idea to create house concert tours for artists, by inspiring enough hosts in one region to collaborate and present a fantastic week of music in a remarkable way. Since 2012, we’ve created a community out of the individual house concert presenters and fans in our region. In recent years, this annual festival has become the iconic event of our worldwide network – house concert presenters and music fans travel great distances to join their tribe and take in a wonderful music vacation. We hope you will too.


Spencer LaJoye
Spencer LaJoye is a folk/pop singer songwriter, violinist, and vocal loop artist in Boston, MA, who believes everyone is made of the good stuff. A 2021 Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition winner, LaJoye (luh-JOY) makes music to tell the truth and return to their body as a queer person in recovery from American Christian evangelicalism. Delivering Broadway-esque melodies accompanied by a weathered dreadnought, their performances are equal parts confident quirk and elegant storytelling.
Daniel Neihoff
Daniel Neihoff wrote his first song at 8 years old as he grew up around family fit for country songs – the old kind about struggle and lonesomeness, mistakes among enduring love. The melodies and legends were all around him in his family, and it all seeped in. Over the years, whether it was for paying gigs or for open mics at Paducah’s bars, Neihoff turned heads with his voice and rewarded the interest with his lyrics. The simmering burn of his talent and craft suddenly led somewhere big. At 20, his first audition for a set at Nashville’s iconic Bluebird Cafe was successful. Neihoff was recently a semi-finalist on Nashville Rising Song. The world is hearing his range of traditional country to modern pop all with a soulful bend. We are hearing the launch of a voice familiar and unique that feels as if it began quite a while ago.
Grace Morrison
Grace Morrison is a mother, musician, renaissance faire performer, cranberry farmer, songwriter, and storyteller. With subjects ranging from Titanic to tantric; an “evening with” Grace will take you from the court of King Henry VIII to debauchery in Denver. With humor and raw honesty, audiences leave Grace’s shows with her songs stuck in their heads and their toes tired from tapping.

Born and raised on the shores of Cape Cod, Grace’s unique brand of “saltwater country” has established her as a confident, refreshing voice in country-pop. With performances at Nashville’s Bluebird Café and co-writes with multi-Grammy winner Lori McKenna (Humble and Kind) and hit songwriter Barbara Cloyd (I Guess You Had to be There) under her belt, Grace made a name for herself in 2022 at songwriter festivals from Massachusetts to Montana.

With musical influences ranging from Fats Domino’s rock and roll licks; the raw expression of jazz; Celtic ballads; and 90’s pop choruses – Grace delivers “three chords and the truth” in a package that is familiar and yet undeniably unique.

Jenna Nicholls
The music of multi-instrumentalist Jenna Nicholls has been turning heads since she arrived on the door step of the Lower East Side of NY. Whether she’s crooning a jazz standard, belting out a New Orleans dirge or plucking her 1920’s style original ballads on her Ukulele, she’s giving a vintage genre a new spin with her own lush nostalgic style. Recently, Jenna has toured with Ingrid Michaelson, shared the stage with Oscar Winner Glen Hansard, Amanda Palmer, Lucius, and Joan as Policewoman. Jenna has performed in venues all across the country including The Beacon Theater and Carnegie Hall.
