Hi Mel, are you still hosting concerts? I'm an Australian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist touring in Deutschland in late Aug to mid Sept. I have a few free dates and will be in the Hamburg area, if you're interested. Best wishes, Stuart Rose http://stuartrosemusic.com

Hi Mel,

My name is Stuart Markus, and I am with an Americana/Roots harmony trio from New York called Gathering Time. Our latest CD, Keepsake, was #1 on Folk DJ-List (the international folk radio chart) in March 2016 with the #1 song and 5 other songs in the top 25, making us the #1 artist for the month also; we came in at #4 for the year.
Since 2012, we have often toured in partnership with an the roots/Americana singer Mara Levine. Her CD Jewels and Harmony was #1 for January 2013 and #3 for that year on the international Folk DJ chart. Typically, we do a set of our own songs as well as backing Mara on hers.
We have been booked together to play a music festival in Ehingen, Germany (near Stuttgart) on Saturday, April 14, 2018, and we're hoping to book a tour in Europe to run from around Saturday, April 7th to Sunday the 15th of next year.
The best way to describe Gathering Time is as a co-ed Crosby, Stills & Nash, with a bit of the Byrds and a jot of Joni Mitchell. Mara Levine is best known as an arranger and interpreter of American traditional songs and those by songwriters of the '60s like Tim Hardin, Leonard Cohen and Paul Simon, as well as contemporary ones.
It is worth noting that we are capable of doing either shows of mostly original songs (or in Mara’s case songs by modern songwriters) OR specialty tribute theme shows entirely of '60s American folk and folk-rock. (Information on those is listed at the 'specialty shows' page of our website. Whichever a venue prefers, we're happy to do.
Full bios, photos, music and videos of Gathering Time are available at www.gathering-time.com, www.youtube.com/gatheringtimetrio and
www.soundcloud.com/gatheringtime; information on Mara (and her music) are available at www.maralevine.com.

Hi Mel.

I am a singer, songwriter from Denmark. I have played in rockbands and soloconcerts  for many years. I am on  a solo-tour in Germany in April and I am looking for a house concert the 8th of April or maybe the 10th as I play in Kiel the 7th and in Hamburg the 9th.

It´s inyimate songs and up tempo rock in the area of Cohen, Cave, The National and Bowie.

I have released and toured in Germany before with my bands.

My new songs (demos):

Songs with my band:

So it´s just me and an acoustic guitar. :-) Could you be interested?

Best regards

Hello Mel!

I'm Joanna Weston, an English singer-songwriter originally from London, now living in The Netherlands. I would love the chance to travel Europe in 2016 and meet many new people and perform my original contemporary folk style songs either solo or with other band members.

In 2014 I released my debut studio album ‘INSIDE OUT’ which is a collection of 'feel good' songs you’ll want to hear time and time again: 

https://joannaweston.bandcamp.com/album/inside-out


.. and here is a video link to 'Amy' taken from my earlier EP 'Pieces of the Puzzle', which tells the story of life long friendship: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OInbbsv9CY 


I hope you enjoy listening and I look forward to hearing from you about all the possibilities. 

Best wishes,

Joanna

Hi Mel!

I'm looking for a house concert to play in Hamburg for early 2016. I'm an Irish singer songwriter currently living in Berlin. I am using Berlin as a base to tour Germany. 

I can see by the influx of comments on this page that you must be very busy. If you have any space please have a listen to my music and check out my website. I'd love to play for your guests!

Kind Regards

Declan

At 16:08 on October 1, 2015, Low Country Hill said…

Hello Mel,

My name is Paul Hogeterp and I am a musician/songwriter from Hamilton, Canada.  In November 2014, I released my debut solo record under the moniker Low Country Hill.  The self-titled record was produced by Dave King at his lovely Barn Window Studio on the outskirts of Hamilton.  I am pleased that Pat Sansone from Wilco and Bill Dillon (Joni Mitchell, Robbie Robertson, Peter Gabriel) lent their playing and artistry to the record.  Recently, Low Country Hill received a 2015 Hamilton Music Awards nomination in the Roots/solo category and was a Hamilton regional finalist in CBC Searchlight 2015.
 
I've been playing solo shows (and occasional full band performances) in central Canada throughout 2015 and hope to tour The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany in late February/early March 2016.  I've very much enjoyed playing house concerts in Canada and would love to make house concerts the primary focus of a tour in Europe.
 
Please check the links below to find out more about Low Country Hill:
 
 
Thanks for your time, Mel.  Looking forward to hearing from you.
Kindly,
Paul

Dear Mel, hello. My name is Ivor Game, a singer and songwriter from London. I play lots of acoustic shows across the UK and beyond, including The Netherlands, releasing albums and singles along the way. I have enjoyed nice radio play too, from BBC6 and other BBCs, to national across Australia, Japan, Europe and America. I have also been played a few times on The Netherlands AVRO, Radio 2 and Acoustic FM and have had nice reviews in New Folk Sounds Magazine. I also recently enjoyed a lovely review for my album Dizzy Spells on Denmarks Gaffa.de and I think I may have been played on Alex Madsens P4 radio show. I love playing my little songs to cosy rooms, and have played many a small coffee bar, and intimate spaces before. You can hear lots of songs, and see a few videos like I Like Being at Home, on http://www.ivorgame.com and more songs on http://www.soundcloud.com/ivorgame. I hope you like the tunes and can consider me for a house concert. Thank you. Hope to hear from you. Kindest regards, Ivor. Ivor Game  ivorgame@btinternet.com
