AUBURN — Concerts for a Cause will host Phil House at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 1, at the First Universalist Church of Auburn.

The show will benefit the church and Safe Voices.

House is known for his stride technique and stirring spiritual style. His 45-year musical career began at the age of 5 playing piano by ear. His gift took him to Nashville for a dozen years. He has played as far away as Vienna, Austria.

For the past 30 years, House has made Auburn UU his musical home. He is a frequent performer at Poland Spring Chapel and a regular at local nursing homes. Perhaps his old bumper sticker best describes his passion for music: “When words fail, music speaks.”

Concerts for a Cause brings special concerts to the local community while raising money for area charities. The series is produced by local musician and church choir director Dave Rowe, along with a dedicated group of church members.

The First Universalist Church of Auburn is at 169 Pleasant St., across from Dairy Joy.

Tickets are $15 at the door, cash or credit. FMI: visit or call 207-783-0461.
