About Me
(I'm German, so please excuse my english)

I'm a strong supporter and enjoy-er of independent music & musicians.

For quite a while, my house is a place for wandering toubadours to stay and relax and explore my hometown Berlin.

I've also been doing house concerts just for the fun of it (for me) and for my befriended musicians to help them to get more attention, sell some CD's and make some money.

I'm doing a house-concert every month (sometimes 2 a month) in my basement which can hold up to 30 people comfortably.

Hello, Alexander!

Wandering troubadour I am! I would love to meet you and play for your audience.

I am a songwriter from the States coming over to play for the first time behind the release of my new EP and album. I'm currently booking in Europe for Jan 12-29. Though I have toured extensively in the States, it's my first time across the pond, and I would be so happy to play and make some new connections with fellow musicians and listeners! I would especially love to open for another artist who is local to your location, if that is possible.

My blog post on European House Concert Network is linked below, and that has links to my music. (My website is below, too.) 

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration and I hope to hear from you! Happy holidays,


Karlyn

Hello,

I’m constantly looking for gigs and any tips would be greatly appreciated! Everything's of interest: Club gigs, open mike nights, festivals, house concerts, prisons, funerals, baptisms - weddings not so!

KENT NIELSEN (DK) – Ukulele Folk Punk / Singer/Songwriter!

"Echoes of JON LANGFORD and RYAN ADAMS. There's something more immediate about this stripped-down version of Kent Nielsen". (R2 Magazine (UK) / Peter Tomkins)

Kent Nielsen is Danish but living in Lübeck (North Germany). He’s got a history as an author, percussionist, shoe shop clerk, record label guy, mail order honcho, night porter and ukulele player a. o. But there’s one thing he’s been doing for ages – and that’s singing. At the end of 2016, he completed an old idea – his first „solo album“. Roughly half of the roots rock colored songs were written together with Stefan Kletetzka (DEEP RIVER), some were brand new while a couple dated back to Kent and Stefan’s time in ONE BAR TOWN. Four covers were added, one by JOHN HARTFORD and another three originally written by GLEN CAMPBELL, EDDIE & THE HOT RODS and C.V. JØRGENSEN featuring Kent solo on the ukulele. Three more songs, drenched in Mod and 60s sounds, were written together with Helge Reich (JAM TODAY).  The album also includes guest appearances from George Whitfield (FIDDLEBOX, ex-PRESSGANG) and Martin Wenk (CALEXICO, NADA SURF, JUDITH HOLOFERNES).

The following tour took Kent through: Germany, Switzerland, England, Denmark, Belgium and the Netherlands. Incl. festivals such as: Rebellion Blackpool (three years in a row), Kirstyfest 2017 (UK), Thinking Pink Festival (UK), Punk Rock BBQ (UK), Rebellion Amsterdam (NL), Nostalgurato Fest (DK, twice) and the Winterswijk Ukulele Hotspot (NL), just to name a few. More countries are being planned for 2019.

„Between the HOT RODS and CALEXICO." (Chris Elstrodt, Folker Magazine)

Out in November, his autobiographical memoir: 'How I didn't turn out a dancer' (A co-production between the German Ventil Publishing House and Ox-Fanzine, ISBN 978-3-95575-103-6).

Topical digital single: ‚Star Wars Diaries‘ (Viking Wreckchords)

Topical album: ‚Shotgun Seat DJ‘ (Viking Wreckchords, Cat.-No. V.W. 130)

Hello from Ireland Alexander,

I am new to the house concert scene and would love to perform a house concert in Germany in the spring/summer 2018. I am a musician & and music therapist from Ireland and through my experiences of travel, education in both ethnomusicology and music therapy my music covers a lot of genres such as reggae, folk and Khoomi (Mongolian throat singing). My live shows incorporate techniques of mindfullness and self-inquiry which can develop a dialogue between myself and the audience related to the human condition, shamanism, music and healing and the relationship between music, self awareness and self- discovery.

I can also do interactive workshops integrating singing, music therapy techniques & qi gong

Here is a link to my website for further info www.niallmcguigan.com & you tube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRDBKOOn6xM Thankyou for your support

At 21:15 on April 27, 2017, Gathering Time said…
Hi Alexander,

My name is Stuart Markus, and I am with an Americana/Roots harmony trio from New York called Gathering Time. Our latest CD, Keepsake, was #1 on Folk DJ-List (the international folk radio chart) in March 2016 with the #1 song and 5 other songs in the top 25, making us the #1 artist for the month also; we came in at #4 for the year.
Since 2012, we have often toured in partnership with an the roots/Americana singer Mara Levine. Her CD Jewels and Harmony was #1 for January 2013 and #3 for that year on the international Folk DJ chart. Typically, we do a set of our own songs as well as backing Mara on hers.
We have been booked together to play a music festival in Ehingen, Germany (near Stuttgart) on Saturday, April 14, 2018, and we're hoping to book a tour in Europe to run from around Saturday, April 7th to Sunday the 15th of next year. 
The best way to describe Gathering Time is as a co-ed Crosby, Stills & Nash, with a bit of the Byrds and a jot of Joni Mitchell. Mara Levine is best known as an arranger and interpreter of American traditional songs and those by songwriters of the '60s like Tim Hardin, Leonard Cohen and Paul Simon, as well as contemporary ones.
It is worth noting that we are capable of doing either shows of mostly original songs (or in Mara’s case songs by modern songwriters) OR specialty tribute theme shows entirely of '60s American folk and folk-rock. (Information on those is listed at the 'specialty shows' page of our website. Whichever a venue prefers, we're happy to do.
Full bios, photos, music and videos of Gathering Time are available at www.gathering-time.com, www.youtube.com/gatheringtimetrio and
www.soundcloud.com/gatheringtime; information on Mara (and her music) are available at www.maralevine.com.

Hello Alexander!

I'm Joanna Weston, an English singer-songwriter originally from London, now living in The Netherlands. I would love the chance to travel Europe in 2016 and meet many new people and perform my original contemporary folk style songs either solo or with other band members.

In 2014 I released my debut studio album ‘INSIDE OUT’ which is a collection of 'feel good' songs you’ll want to hear time and time again: 

https://joannaweston.bandcamp.com/album/inside-out


.. and here is a video link to 'Amy' taken from my earlier EP 'Pieces of the Puzzle', which tells the story of life long friendship: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OInbbsv9CY 


I hope you enjoy listening and I look forward to hearing from you about all the possibilities. 

Best wishes,

Joanna
