Call it an impromptu folk club, like a private party in someone's living room. Burghsong is a 50-minute concert series showcasing contemporary songwriters.
Co-founder Ben Shannon said it was artists' attention to detail and word craft that first drew his devotion back in 2014. What began as a single, successful mini-festival grew into a collaboration with the Sunburst School of Music in Squirrel Hill.
Robbie Hecht of Nashville performed at the 50-seat space in November.
"It's a nice vibe," he said. "This is about as intimate as it gets."
Shannon said he and fellow organizers wanted to provide a cozy setting for people who appreciate song "where local singer/songwriters could be paired with a national songwriter on an equal basis to showcase their craft."
