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)

Suggestions for the Coffee Shop



In response to the suggestion by Kay Frew that perhaps lessons could be learned from the experience of the last few weeks I have been thinking of a few ground rules for the coffee shop.



I was chatting with Mark (coffee shop proprietor) and we concluded that the night starts well and often gets a bit 'lumpy' or even 'thin' towards the end. Drop in guests from the local Hotels rarely stay long which suggest that the quality of music… Continue

Carly Simon - You're so Vain

I just heard the new version of this track on Sat! It is stunning, well worth a listen right to the end.

Hi Matt,
Thanks for listening. I'm really looking forward to playing at the coffee shop. Fingers crossed all is well next week:) I saw the video with you and Emma and have listened to your music, sounds great. Looking forward to seeing you both live and meeting you.
See you soon

Hi,

Hope you’re having a great day. Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you a little about Roosevelt Bandwagon:

Roosevelt Bandwagon's personnel currently reside in London, UK. The band comprises a fluid line-up of extremely experienced musicians who have been writing, recording and touring internationally in various guises for many years. The ethos is to play the music that comes most naturally to its members with absolutely no consideration whatsoever for the trends, fashions and formulae of the commercial music industry.

Having played house concerts many times in the States in years gone by we love the idea of the House Concert Hub – it is certainly more focused than other social networking sites and far more friendly!!!

We’re currently doing sessions for a full length album which should be ready by May of this year. In the mean time, we have put out the ‘Train Roll On’ EP. We have a limited edition of free pressings which we’re mailing out to those people who request it – hurry and drop us a line before we run out! Tracks can also be heard on our home page/ visit us on myspace: www.myspace.com/rooseveltbandwagon where you can download the tracks for free.

Do please drop us a line – we’d love to hear your thoughts on our music/ have you as a friend.

Best wishes & have a great weekend.

Roosevelt Bandwagon

Hi Matt,

What evening would suit you this week for an informal House Concert. I was thinking of between 7 pm and midnight and could order a taxi home for those biding near Dingwall.

Leave a message on my homepage here or tel: 01349 863321 (to 11 pm)

Yours,

Yok Finney

Looking for house concerts for piano trio January 4-8.

I'll be traveling in Northern Europe with my traditional jazz and American roots music piano trio in early January. We're trying to fill some dates between January 4-8, wondering if anyone here would be interested in having us perform at their house concert series. Below is a link to a video where you can see what we do. you can email me directly at jaredengel<at>gmail<dot>com.  Cheers!…See More
