Every June, families in the Chestertown/Kent County area open their homes to National Music Festival musicians. While some hosts are Festival volunteers or board members, many are local residents who just love music and musicians, or simply want to help. Hosting musicians is a wonderful and rewarding experience!
Hosts are recruited throughout the year, and are matched with guests in May. Musicians are responsible for their own transportation and meals during their stay (some hosts like to invite their guests to join them for meals when possible, but this is not required). Hosts provide a place to sleep and practice. If you are able to help with transportation, that is wonderful and much appreciated, but it is not required.
