THE BASKETHOUSE has seen many incarnations. The term comes from the baskethouses in NYC in the 60s and 70s--those folk shows in NYC's Greenwich Village where artists played for whatever cash was thrown in the basket. Drew Brody heard the term discussed in the Bob Dylan documentary No Direction Home, which inspired him to start a weekly acoustic folk series at the Bitter End in NYC in 2006 and 2007. It turned into a Song-a-Week podcast with 12 songwriters, writing a song a week for 6 months. And now, with Baskethouse Records, we've got an internet street fair for the Baskethouse community of artists to sell their wares. No middlemen here, so you can feel great about contributing!

The Baskethouse, in all its forms, is about encouraging talented, emerging songwriters who have something to say.
