Phile Lee "The Mighty King of Love" at Grateful Fred's, Wednesday 7th August 2013

From the www.facebook.com/gratefulfreddie Facebook page:

What a terrific night at Grateful Fred's last night!!



 I absolutely loved it. "Phil Lee", "The Mighty King of Love" was just wonderful. Such a character and a really, really fun guy. Great songs, great harmonica, great guitar (on Martin and a National) and wonderful stories. It was also the first time Les and I had been brought on stage by a headliner to sing…

Andy White joined by sister Cathy at Grateful Fred's, Liverpool

We were chuffed to find that Andy will be joined by his sister Cathy at our next Grateful Fred Roots and Acoustic Night on November 7th.



Cathy has sung with andy since a very early age, and has recorded with him on 'Rave On', 'Destination Beautiful' and the 'Andy White' album. She was part of Andy's Irish band around the time of 'Out There' and 'Destination Beautiful', but apart from an appearance at Glastonbury in 1990-something and an ICA show around the same time, this will… Continue

Ashleigh Flynn was great!

We had a great night at Grateful Fred's on Thursday (7th Oct) with Ashleigh Flynn. Ashleigh's such a great performer and has such an easy way with her that the audience just loved her. Songs froms her "American Dream" album hit the spot with our audience and I'm certain that those lucky enough to see her on… Continue

Hi Colin,

We're touring around the UK in June and are looking to fill in a few dates. We'll be near liverpool on the 14th and maybe the 17th. We'll be touring as a 4 piece of Cello, Guitar/ mando, fiddle and bass/ stompbox. We're based in QC and are a combination of Scottish and Quebec musicians. Let me know if this sounds interesting.

cheers,

ewan

Hello Everyone,

We are Lostboy an Acoustic Folk duo who are from the north but now reside in sunny London. Having been friends for 13 years we only recently formed in 2016, we try to mix close harmony with Folk tunes they strive to write honest original songs.

We are currently looking for House Concerts in the UK from August through to October 2017 but we are not rigid with these months.

We have been gigging throughout London and have just secured our first festival, We believe this summer is going to be great and we would absolutely love to perform for some House Concert crowds.

Here are all our social links for you guys to look at.

Hi Colin,

I'm coming back to London, UK August 27th. It's been a couple years, and last time you said you were sorry to have mised me at THE GREEN NOTE.

I'm hoping there is a place for me to play at Grateful Freds this time around!

I've recently won the 2014 New Mexico Music Awards for best folk song and have been nominated in 3 catagories for the 2015 Southwest Independent Music Awards!

Look forward to hearing from you.

all the best,

Martha

Hi Colin

I'm working on a third UK tour in Oct 2014 for the lovely Philadelphia USA based singer and songwriter, Lizanne Knott.
As ever, I need some gigs to complete the tour.

You may have seen my recent blog on the Euro House Concert site about the tour.

Here's the spiel ...
Philadelphia-based songwriter and singer, Lizanne Knott (see http://www.lizanneknott.com/) has joined forces with LA-based songwriter and singer Bill Reveles (see attached and http://www.reverbnation.com/billreveles).

The duo will tour under the name "Hey Harley" (taken from one of Bill's songs) and will be billed as "Hey Harley (feat: Lizanne Knott and Bill Reveles)".

In just a few short months since forming the Americana duo "hey Harley", Lizanne and Bill have managed to secure ...
*** a London (UK) based label
*** a full artist partnership with Taylor Guitars
*** a great tour agency and,
*** an amazing executive producer - allowing us to keep our publishing and make an honest living out here.

BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris is a major fan and plays Lizanne's music frequently.

Could you offer the duo a gig on Sat 25 October?

FEE
The duo's fee should ideally(!) be in the range £400-£500 vs door split plus x2 B&B accoms and PA. As ever this is negotiable, of course, since we need the gigs.
It's a very big journey to come over here from Philapdelphia and LA and then just sit idly around without a gig!

PROMO
Lizanne's DropBox folder contains a lot promo materials - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/c0cxq6zhtft27ci/H6rMRYOuyv

Hi Colin, just to be clear, the "yes" was to the accommodations, I will be there to perform regardless, Tom.

At 15:40 on June 14, 2014, Tom Shed said…

Hi Colin, Thanks for the offer. For this leg of the tour I am travelling with my wife.  If this works for the accommodations offer then yes.  We will arrive Liverpool from Ireland on the 11th.  Let me know what day(s) work for you, or if it does at all.  Yes, Curly Maple Music is a small supportive label. All the best, Tom Shed

Hi Colin,

Sounds OK to me.  I will taylor my show for your headliner.
all the best,
At 12:05 on June 14, 2014, Tom Shed said…

Hi  Colin,  I am performing in Liverpool on Sept 12.  If you could recommend me to another venue, I would be grateful.  Curly Maple Music is paying for the gig so it's free to the venue.  They can charge(hopefully at a lower rate) and have a fund raiser if they like.  My tour goes back and forth a bit.  Ireland Sept. 6-8,  England Sept. 10-14, France Sept. 16-19. Then October is open so far. I go where I am booked or the label sends me.  I am mostly promoting the new CD "Mama's Goin' Out" with the media.  Should make for a good crowd at the venues.  All the best, Tom Shed
