House Concerts with Will Ackerman & Vin Downes

Please feel free to contact Virginia Andrew at in regards to setting up a house concert featuring Will Ackerman (founder of Windham Hill Records and Grammy Award winner) and myself. We will provide a wonderful evening of music (solos & duets) and stories in an intimate setting for you, your family, and friends.  

Here are what some of our house concert hosts have said about our performances...  


“This past Saturday we hosted a house concert at our home in Gorham, Maine. It was a special day with our family and friends that we’ll never forget!  
The music and storytelling by Will Ackerman and Vin Downes was truly special.  

Not only are Will and Vin world class guitar players, they are both fine human beings whom we are so happy to have made friends with! Thanks so much to both of them for a wonderful day!”  

— Marc and Michelle Belhumeur 


"We were able to catch a rare and close up glimpse that provided a richness to melodies that we are so familiar with and have come to love.  

Will and Vin stayed well after the concert to greet family, friends, and continue the conversation. By far, this was one of the most memorable events in my life.”  

— Megan Cutter 


"After a sit-down dinner with our closest friends and family on our garden patio on a late spring evening under the stars, we were enraptured by a private concert with Will and his musical buddy Vin Downes. It was a magical night we will never forget. – Thank you, Will and Vin!!”
