If host are you an open house concert? ie Can non members apply?
"The Common House" is the common house for a 12 family commune called "Plantagen" in Næstved, Denmark. It's the building where we cook, eat and meet.
The town of Næstved (pop. 42,588) is an hour and a quarter southwest of Copenhagen on Zealand. It is on the same train line between Copenhagen and Hamburg/Berlin. It's also 20 minutes off the highway to and from Germany and to and from western Denmark (Fyn & Jutland) to such cities as Odense, Aarhus & Aalborg.
If you contact us about possibly playing here, send a link to your music, your website and your requested date(s). We will get back to you shortly to let you know if we want to do a show or not. If it works out hosting your act, you would be playing in our dining space. We'll move the tables aside to accommodate chairs and floor seating. There would be room for up to 100 people.
Friday evenings will be preferred. But any concerts between Tuesday and Friday will include dinner at 6pm (for the band only) and you are welcome to sleep upstairs on the second floor after the show for one night (the band only). You will need to have your own bedding, sleeping bags, pads, pillows, towels, etc. There is a bathroom.
There is no PA so if you need one, you have to bring your own.
We will request donations for you or you are welcome to pass the hat. If folks don't have cash, they can mobile pay one of us and we can Paypal you any funds to your Paypal account. You are welcome to sell your music and merchandise as well.
Your audience will be those of us living here, our families and friends we invite and our immediate neighbors who we'll let know with a small flyer in their mailboxes. We would need to know in advance, the number of any other people you invite to the show.
We will let people know to bring their own drinks and snacks. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring a bag of ground coffee (and tea) and brew it here to sell. If so, be sure to bring some milk. You can also bring popcorn to pop here, cookies, sodas, juice boxes, etc. to sell. Someone will sell for you while you are playing.
We look forward to hearing from you.

I am new to the house concert scene and would love to perform a house concert in the Denmark in spring/summer so I am flexible with dates. I am a musician & and music therapist from Ireland and through my experiences of travel, education in both ethnomusicology and music therapy my music covers a lot of genres such as reggae, folk and Khoomi (Mongolian throat singing). My live shows incorporate techniques of mindfullness and self-inquiry which can develop a dialogue between myself and the audience related to the human condition, shamanism, music and healing and the relationship between music, self awareness and self- discovery.
