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

About Me
Norm Ballinger is a poet, carpenter, strawbale home builder, sculptor of trash magic, but most of all he is a guitar slinger. From his early days as a soloist playing delta blues and ragtime finger picking to accompanying songwriters such as George Ensle, Eric Taylor, and Jerry Stevens, Norm has explored a wide variety of musical styles. Though coming from a folk/rock/blues background, Norm’s songwriting transcends genre. Every song opens to another place of wonder. As a seasoned guitarist, he can play a wide variety of cover songs and instrumentals. As a performer/songwriter/composer he can masterfully lead a band through all levels of wow at restaurants, bars, concerts, and festivals.

With his third CD release, Where The Heart Lingers, Norm proves himself as a seasoned songwriter and instrumentalist. His new band, featuring percussionist Jorge de Armas, and Kurt Huffman on fretless bass, has been filling rooms since their first show. The band is a fine complement to the variety in Norm’s songs from soulful waltz to gypsy jazz to rockin’ jams. Think Bruce Cockburn, or how about Dave Matthews Band meets Jethro Tull with Leo Kottke sitting in.

Dragon of Summer

early July '13

The Dragon of summer afternoon waits

hiding in the morning dew

and the treasures

of these hours which so quickly disappear

I muster my kit and get ready

for the slow crawl
