Welcome to Acoustic Neighbors

Acoustic Neighbors is the newest project from Music & Potlucks, a 501(c)(3) community organization. It is a live stream monthly, acoustic music and spoken word showcase and all we need is you.


Singers, musicians, storytellers, authors who read from their work, poets are all welcome to perform on an Acoustic Neighbors ZOOM cast. We’d love to hear your original or traditional songs; rock, folk, pop, rap - we love it all - or your spoken word presentation. Stories, poems and readings are always refreshing and always welcome here.

Each 75 or so minute show features six guest performers. Each presents two songs or about ten minutes of spoken word material. The purpose is to gather participants from around the Midwest and around the country in a supportive atmosphere, and to solicit donations to support Music & Potlucks’ community music initiative. 


So far Acoustic Neighbors has presented storytellers, folk singers, poets, authors, singer songwriters, banjo pickers, fiddlers, a pedal harpist, vocalists, duos and trios including Belinda Fuller, Chicago IL,  Bil Ryan, Oak Park IL, Bonnie Bell, Milwaukee WI, Guitar Charlie, Chicago IL, Craig Siemsen, Milwaukee WI, Christina Marie Eltrevoog, Ottawa IL, Ed McKenzie, Chicago IL, Lee & Nancy Pennington, Oak Park IL, Lou Ann Homan, angola IN, Lyle Holthaus, Racine WI, Mike Lenich, Ludington MI, Marianne Mohrhusen, Brookfield IL, Max Allard, Chicago IL, Mike & Lisa Templeton, Lostant IL, Paul Klonowski, Gurnee IL, Ronna Baron, Wilmette IL, Rulaine Stokes, Lansing MI, Sall Potter, Lansing MI, Sue Fink, Chicago IL, Susan Reeder, Chicago IL, Tim Lilly, St. Louis MO.
