“Paul has received a lot of recognition for his work, from winning 15 Boston Music Awards, to being inducted to the Maine Music Hall of Fame. His songs have been featured on Hollywood soundtracks such as, “Shallow Hal,” “Hall Pass,” “You, Me and Irene” and the upcoming film, “10 Days in a Mad House.” He also has written a poetry book, children’s books, made a film and recorded two children’s albums and a Christmas album.

“I love my job,” he said. “People keep showing up.””

Concert Info

Acoustic Concert Tours is the Dallas area's premier house concert series started in 1987 by Paul Porter. We are moving to a new venue! Thank you to Linda Silas and Tom Noe for hosting concerts in Wylie since 1992. We are sad to see them go BUT excited to relocate to Turtle Hawk Acres, home of Karen Cameron and Andy Boehmer, located on three acres in beautiful Oak Cliff. Concerts are brought to you by Paul Porter and Karen Cameron.

Concerts are scheduled approximately every quarter. Most are on Saturday evening at 7:30 pm and a few are on Sunday afternoon at 4:00 pm. We ask each person attending to make a donation of $20, which all goes to the performer. Drinks and snacks are available and there's a donation kitty. You can also bring whatever you like for yourself or to share. Reservations are normally not required but we suggest you arrive about 10-20 minutes before show time for a good seat. SEATING IS LIMITED! It is a good idea to RSVP for the show to ensure a seat. RSVP to one of the email addresses above.

Feel free to bring instruments. Impromptu song circles have been known to break out after the show. We encourage the music but request that song circles end by approximately 1:00 am!

We feature some of acoustic music's greatest singer-songwriters, from all over the US and beyond, in a serious listening room. We often call this "Hard Listening" music, because the lyrics have something to say and are sure to make you think. You will rarely hear it on the radio - it's just too good.


"Turtle Hawk Acres" - 3211 W. Ledbetter Dr, Dallas, TX 75233
