Hi Craig

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 Thu 16 or Fri 17 October?

Other Scottish gigs

Tue 14     Moffat house concert
Wed 15     Irvine Folk Club
Thu 16 and Fri 17   available in Scotland
Sat 18     Benderloch
Sun 19 and Mon 20   available in Scotland
Tue 21     Glasgow Star Folk Club
...

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!

Hi Craig,

I was wondering if I could get a moment if your time to listen to something?
It's the title track from Terry Emm's new album. I am booking shows for Terry in 2014 and thought he might suit the music events you put on.
 
Terry's music has recently had airplay from legendary DJ Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2. Bob described Terry's music as 'excellent, excellent music' and has had him in for a live session. BBC 6 Music DJs Gideon Coe, Chris Hawkins and Tom Robinson have also spun his tracks regularly alongside many regional stations. Terry has recently shared the stage with the likes of; Amy Wadge, Richard Walters, Danny & The Champs, Jackie Leven, Judith Owen, Red Dirt Skinners and many others.
MOJO magazine have described his music as 'pastoral, romantic and lit musically by summer rays…no routine singer- songwriter offering but some-thing totally engaging in melody and lyric' in a 4 star review.
It'd be interesting to see what you think to his music and great if you could consider him for a show.
Thanks very much,
Theo Hall
