The European House Concert  Hub

The place for concert hosts, guests and artists to network

Listen again to the great Ralph McLean chatting to Hub founder Rob Ellen on BBC Radio Ulster about his quest to encourage concerts in peoples own homes, when the Medicine Show toured Ireland this year with Chuck Hawthorne and Libby Koch (featuring interview and session with them too) 35 minutes into the show.(click picture)

About Me
Ahoy! Come aboard and sail with the Captain, an intergalactic time detective, whose mission has been to shed light on those who neither chased, courted or endeared themselves to any audience. These are the lost stories and the hidden gems, much like The Captain himself!
Indeed, the release of the debut album ‘Hidden Gems – Chapter 1’ on the BBC ( Brigand Broadcasting Company ) in September 2016 will be accompanied by a series of performances in unusual, bespoke, intimate and engaged settings.

A timeless troubadour, creating a concoction of music & interactive, intuitive performance... No gig is ever the same. Where sweet black cabaret meets a healthy dollop of vaudeville. Replete with an equal measure of joy, pathos and profundity it has to be seen to be believed.

. **** ‘ I don't think I'm made of that stuff, ‘ laments the singer-songwriter styled only as the Captain. The doubt's right there, in the lyrics of one of his beautifully heartfelt songs – yet if "that stuff" is talent, then the man we see in front of us clearly exudes it from every pore. Let's be clear about one thing first: The Captain really can sing. I don't just mean he can sing in Fringe terms – I mean he has a voice you might hear on a West End stage, or here in Edinburgh at a recital in the Usher Hall. **** RICHARD STAMP, FRINGE GURU (Edinburgh Fringe Festival)

***** 'Now this was a curio of time-travel theatre. His Good Ship has landed at Space Triplex for a short run and yesterday I was called to witness his melody, muse and weirdness. Fifty minutes of nautical mysticism brought to life with a genuine apparition of a Spirit Galleon' ***** MARK 'DIVINE' CALVERT, MUMBLE CIRQUE (Edinburgh Fringe Festival ).

‘Capable of veering between heartfelt & vaudevillian with a comedic timing only afforded to a chosen few. He is poet, comedian & storyteller all in equal measure. To see it is to believe it.
To not see it is to try only imagine it’
PRINTERS PLAYHOUSE EASTBOURNE (Audience reviews & reactions)

‘Mrs Yarringtons is overjoyed with pleasure to announce the return of The Captain. For those who have seen him at Mrs Y’s or last years The Big Green Cardigan he needs no introduction. For those who haven’t how to describe it? as one reviewer said, ‘Watching a ‘Captain Of The Lost Waves’ performance is like trying to describe the colour number nine’ and I think that says it all. Deliciously bonkers, eccentric and impossible to categorize. Through operatic scales to eerie chorale voices, hypnotic rhythm’s to confessional and emotive lyrics and haunting melodies we ultimately come to the conclusion that the Captain is a man not content to sit still as he travels musically, physically and mentally, ultimately avoiding destination drudgery. Were he not one of the great contemporary lyricists he would no doubt be hailed as one of the great modern poets or thinkers of our time.
This really is one not to miss.’
‘From the greatest show on Earth some of the greatest stories never told’ ’MRS YARRINGTONS MUSIC CLUB, BATTLE/THE BIG GREEN CARDIGAN FESTIVAL, E.SUSSEX

' No fanfare, no announcement, no "make some noise" for the Captain. He's there waiting in the dark with us and he calmly steps forward when his audience is settled. He gives us a brief introduction about his cosmic journey and begins the first of 7 beautifully crafted songs, all of which you are encouraged to sing along with. It's ok, you will feel compelled and unabashed. His stage persona suggests we accept him and his stories at face value. Tales of musical collaborations with Edith Piaf and William Theodore Rickard are mesmerising. As the audience accepts his word we believe his tales from outer space about meetings with names we have never heard' ***** EDFRINGE.COM
