Living Here: a map of songs


45 Homes throughout NYC

Composer/performer Gideon Irving is a 21st century troubadour. He has performed in over 300 homes staying with his hosts along the way, and building his tours through connections made for him by audience members who recommend friends and places for him to play next. His songs and stories grow out of this experience– of the remarkable diversity of people he has met and the irreplaceable intimacy of live performance. With dozens of instruments, haunting and hilarious tales of his travels, and an unforgettable singing voice, Gideon’s musical home shows remind us of what is timeless about sharing time together.
