Letter To Overnight Hosts



Dear Host,

















Hi. We are looking forward to staying overnight at your home!


Here is what it is usually like

We arrive at the concert venue about 3 ½ - 4 hours before the show start-time, and do a complete set up before supper (which is 2 hours before the concert hour).


Linnea and David will stay to meet people and then tear down the concert set after the event. This almost always takes up to 3 ½ hours after the concert start time. It would be a great help (again) to have someone escort us to your home at that hour. Alternatively, written directions would help us find you. (Spoken directions could be dangerous at that hour..!). We do travel with a GPS navigating unit, so we may find that its directions are sufficient.


If Our Children Are With Us

We have three children – who have grown up touring with us and are seasoned travellers. They are Patrick (born '97), Nicole (born '98) and Isaac (born '02). We Jonsson-Goods need only one or two rooms - one with double bed for Linnea & David. The children are comfortable on cots, couches or foamies.


We are fairly simple eaters, preferring cereal and toast, hot oatmeal or eggs for breakfast. We appreciate food that is natural, without additives or sugar. We have no food or animal allergies. We are tea drinkers (orange pekoe... mmmm).


On a normal day, we might ask to stay at your home until we leave for our next venue anywhere from 7am to 1pm. Please let us know if you have time constraints. We might ask you for directions out of town.


Again, thank you so much in advance for your hospitality. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions that can't be answered when we arrive. Email us if you need advance conversation. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you at the event!


Linnea & David
