The European House Concert  Hub

The place for concert hosts, guests and artists to network

If you haven’t hosted a House Concert yet, please make it a new year’s resolution!

Why not invite your favourite independent musician to play for your friends family and his fans in your front room, I’ll be surprised if he/she won’t show up sometime this year and play for you, let me know about it and if The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile is loose is near enough we’ll come and broadcast it too. If you would like to help keep the wheels on the Hub and on The Moose become a patron at

Happy Hosting, Happy New Year - Rob Ellen

About Me
From Dear John to John Deere!
'When all the trends fade and become dated, and all the music from the cutting edge becomes dull, Linda McRae will continue to stand tall, singing and playing music with honest soul and humility, cutting through the fog with timeless clarity. Linda is one of the true, soulful pioneers of honest roots music. Her singing and playing brings honor to her heroes and to her friends and fans." - Colin Linden

Linda is a Canadian, Juno nominated, Platinum and Gold recording artist. After her tenure as bassist/accordionist/vocalist with Spirit of the West, Linda left the band in 1997 to resume her solo career and has since released three critically acclaimed FolkRoots/Americana recordings. Flying Jenny produced by Colin Linden (Bruce Cockburn) featured a high-powered roster of Canadian talent. Cryin’ Out Loud was produced by Gurf Morlix (Lucinda Williams, Slaid Cleaves, Mary Gauthier) and Linda's current release Carve It To The Heart was produced by Linda and Marc L’Esperance (Po' Girl, Ray Condo). All three Cd’s have distribution in the US, Europe and Canada.

Linda has studied with Grammy winning songwriter Jon Vezner and clawhammer banjo aficionado Brad Leftwich and the banjo has become an integral part of Linda’s work.

Linda's busy tour schedule reflects her love for performing having completed 200 shows last year alone. She is a compelling entertainer and her personality and storytelling add an intimacy to her shows regardless of the size of venue. Her evocative and powerful voice is well supported with the addition of her acoustic finger-style and flatpick rhythm guitar, clawhammer banjo, and Porchboard bass.

Linda's musical journey took her to Nashville where she now lives performing regularly alongside Nashville’s premier songwriters. I am including a link to a performance this past October at one of Nashville’s most most-respected venues, 3rd & Lindsley with special guest Colin Linden.

In addition to her busy touring schedule, she writes a monthly column for BC Musician's Magazine entitled "This Winding Road" and is currently working on her next recording scheduled for release next spring.

Hey thanks for posting this review Rob! I'm hoping to be over again in June next year. I've been asked to play The Maverick Festival. Grapevine is helping me out with some bookings, looking for shows while I'm there in June. Hope to see you then!

Nice FSR Review for the album Linda

Listening to Linda McRae for the first time is pretty much like discovering Gillian Welch for the first time: John Davy
