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)

About Me
"Without music, life would be a mistake." Friedrich Nietzsche

Who am I to disagree with Nietzsche?

Nietzsche also said:“That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.” (more commonly quoted as "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger")

He subsequently went terminally insane.

It is that sort of bitter irony that often informs my lyrics.

Still it's not all gloom! I do sometimes incorporate humour into my songs, though maybe viewed through a jaded lens.

Still, Music has been my touchstone through good times and bad, my saviour and friend.

I am a man of seasoned years. Living has been my education in songwriting.

I have been writing and performing music for many years. I was classically trained, starting as a 7 year old trudging to Music lessons on a Saturday morning and cheating my half hour a day practice by moving the hands forward on the alarm clock my mother put in the "parlour" to time me. (note- we called it a parlour, today it would be a plain front room.)

My first professional work was with recording studios, most notably Rockfield.
I have also stood in on sessions for radio, including the BBC. Over time, I have shared the bill with Glastonbury legends Stackridge, Simple Minds, Terrafolk , The Strawbs, Adrian Edmondson, Ricky Warwick of the Almighty and Thin Lizzy and the The Bad Shepherds. I have also played festival slots with Nick Harper, The Storys, Amy Wadge and Cerys Matthews.

I perform as a solo artist or with a band.

I try and make my music particularly noteworthy for it's lyrical content and choruses. I happily admit to influences from everyone from Dylan to Billy Bragg, passing through the territories of Neil Young, Springsteen, Damien Rice etc.

Hi 

I've not played a house concert before but would love to be initiated into the experience. I'm based in Wales but am willing to travel anywhere. www.nigeld.co.uk/music Hope you like what you hear and ask me along. Thank you.
