Hello there,

How are you?

I am specifically looking to fill the following Dates:

May 28th
Aug 24th and 25th

However, if you find my Profile interesting, yet the Dates don't suit you. I'm sure we can work something out.

Would be thrilled to hear from you.

Kind regards,



KENT NIELSEN (DK) – Ukulele Folk Punk / Singer/Songwriter!

„Lyrics like a punch in the gut, painfully reminding you of your own wounds“. (Christian Elsrodt / Folker! Magazine)

Kent Nielsen is Danish but living in Lübeck (North Germany). He’s got a history as an author, percussionist, shoe shop clerk, record label guy, mail order honcho, night porter and ukulele player a. o.
But there’s one thing he’s been doing for ages – and that’s singing.
He just completed an old project – his first „solo album“. Roughly half of the roots rock colored Songs were written together with Stefan Kletetzka (DEEP RIVER), some are brand new while a couple Dates back to Kent and Stefan’s time in ONE BAR TOWN. Four covers were added, one by JOHN HARTFORD and another three originally written by GLEN CAMPBELL, EDDIE & THE HOT RODS and C.V. JØRGENSEN featuring Kent solo on the ukulele. Three more songs, drenched in Mod and 60s sounds, were written together with Helge Reich (JAM TODAY). The album also includes guest appearances from George Whitfield (FIDDLEBOX, ex-PRESSGANG) and Martin Wenk (CALEXICO, NADA SURF, JUDITH HOLOFERNES).

“I've always been fortunate to work with some extremely gifted songwriting partners. Hopefully we‘ve managed an album as diverse and varied as I prefer them.” (Kent Nielsen)

Dear Square Wheels: Hope you guys are great!! I See Hawks In L.A. are releasing two records in May: our own and an EP collaboration with the Good Intentions which turned out quite well. We plan on touring UK/Ireland this summer.

I know it's a bit of short notice for you (our agent Bob Butler of Grapevine agency has sadly passed away), but if you have a slot for us we'd love to play one of your concerts. Our tour window is mid-July through mid-August, though we could head over earlier if that's when most of the shows are happening.

Hi Square Wheels House Concerts

Hope your good. 

Im working with a band called A Different Thread who are looking to book in a house concert tour. They would love to play your house concerts if possible!

Their stuff is below and it would be great to see what we can do together. 

A Different Thread - Released on 15th April
Bio: ‘A Different Thread’ consists of travelling singer and songwriter Robert Jackson, and versatile classical cellist Isaac Collier. With a distinctive voice, bluesy harmonica and rhythmic guitar picking,  Jackson’s songs cleverly weave together adventure, bitter romance and synchronicity with “thought provoking, well crafted lyrics” (Gordon Giltrap). Collier’s enchanting and often improvised playing gives this folk duo a refreshing and impulsive edge.

Let me know your thoughts on the music.

Hello ,

We are Lostboy an Acoustic Folk duo who are from the north but now reside in sunny London. Having been friends for 13 years we only recently formed in 2016, we try to mix close harmony with Folk tunes they strive to write honest original songs.

We are currently looking for House Concerts in the UK from August through to October 2017 but we are not rigid with these months.

We have been gigging throughout London and have just secured our first festival, We believe this summer is going to be great and we would absolutely love to perform for some House Concert crowds.

Here are all our social links for you guys to look at.

If you are hosting a concert and would like us to play, Please do email the address below.

Hello Steve and Clancy, I'm an Alaskan artist who'll be in the UK this August. Will you consider my music for your house concert audience? Brit artist Jen Armstrong, who is also super fabulous, will be supporting me, so you'll get both of us :)

Halloween House Concert with Celilo Strathpeffer this week



To cheer away the autumnal chill we’re hosting another hoose concert.

Celilo are a four piece band from the most musical & cycling friendly city in America - Portland, Oregon.

You could describe them as a 70’s Neil Young meets Darkside Pink Floyd and a good dash of twang chucked in. It’s the first time we’ll have had a drummer in the Hoose too so that going to be interesting.

Check them out… Continue
