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)

JAMES RILEY

Thrilled to announce that "Lightning Strikes", the first single from my new album recorded in Nashville will be released on November 7th.

It's a murder ballad that I wrote in the middle of a thunderstorm in Tennessee.

I'm going to be playing a series of house concerts up and down the country to mark the release, if you'd like me to come play in your living room, attic, back garden or cellar, please get in touch:

About Me
If two years in Nashville taught London-boy James Riley anything, it’s the power of a good song. After leaving these shores in 2015, James found a kindred posse in Music City’s listening rooms and bars, and soon began writing an album whilst gigging and working odd jobs around downtown Nashville's bars and writer's rooms.
Returning to the UK this summer with a slew of fresh material and a brand new lineup, Riley’s forthcoming album (out early 2018) is a heady elixir of modern folk and classic soul in no small measure influenced by the fiery integrity of Tennessee’s songwriting tradition.

“Awesome… like the Allman Brothers meets the Seeger Sessions”
Laura Marling

“Riley writes with a deftness often reserved for musicians twice his age”
Addict Music

"One of my highlights of 2014"
Verity Sharp, BBC Radio 3

“It hooked us on first listen…from the harmonies to the guitar work there’s nothing to not like”
Folk Radio UK

"Phenomenal"
Dick Gaughan

“James Riley won’t be one of the best kept secrets on the London folk scene for much longer”
For Folk’s Sake
