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

Happy Hosting, Happy New Year - Rob Ellen

About Me
'Gary Hall, Preston's Celtic soul man, infused with the epic sweep of Springsteen' – The Guardian

'Bailey's Tower Songs is reminiscent of some of Nick Drake's best work' – Northern Sky

'Listen to Hall closely and hear touches of Dylan and Gram Parsons:straightforward with all the power of a freight train' – Folk Roots

'His gorgeous string-drenched soulful pop puts Ian Bailey in the front rank of British songwriters' – Americana UK

Gary Hall, who recorded six critically acclaimed albums (both here and in the States) during the 1990s, has finally been cajoled by best friend and song writing partner Ian Bailey (who also has three critically acclaimed albums under his belt) to not only record an album together, but also to leave the dark depths of his Voodoo Rooms studio to 'tread the boards' again for the first time in over a decade.

The result of this partnership is Songs from The Voodoo Rooms, featuring twelve stripped down (no reverb, no overdubs, no nonsense) acoustic versions of some of Hall and Bailey's most powerful work to date. Eight of the songs recorded have been completely reworked and distilled down from their original versions, whilst four new songs 'Can't Believe She's Gone', 'Chance to Change', 'Still My Reason Why' and 'The Enemy Within' have been specially written for these sessions.

The live shows to promote the album will no doubt drag some old Gary fans out of the woodwork to rub shoulders with Ian's ever-growing grass roots following, where they can share an evening together experiencing that special place in music where poetry meets melody, melts and makes magic.
