Hello, I am a USA/NC-based singer songwriter who just record my third record with G-award winning producer/drummer John Hampton in Memphis TN. It would be wonderful to come and play for you solo acoustic style this summer! With that in mind may I invite you to check me out at http://www.reverbnation.com/danielsage - happy to make bookings way in advance, anytime after July 11th works.

Peace & love,

Daniel Sage

Dear Ken,

In May (24-25) next year I will play on the Strathyre Music Festival. I was wondering if you see possibilities for me to perform in your region.

Info about me on: http://stefanvandesande.nl

Kind Regards, Stefan.

Hi Ken,

I was wondering if I could get a moment if your time to listen to something?
It's the title track from Terry Emm's new album. I am booking shows for Terry in 2014 and thought he might suit the music events you put on.
 
Terry's music has recently had airplay from legendary DJ Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2. Bob described Terry's music as 'excellent, excellent music' and has had him in for a live session. BBC 6 Music DJs Gideon Coe, Chris Hawkins and Tom Robinson have also spun his tracks regularly alongside many regional stations. Terry has recently shared the stage with the likes of; Amy Wadge, Richard Walters, Danny & The Champs, Jackie Leven, Judith Owen, Red Dirt Skinners and many others.
MOJO magazine have described his music as 'pastoral, romantic and lit musically by summer rays…no routine singer- songwriter offering but some-thing totally engaging in melody and lyric' in a 4 star review.
It'd be interesting to see what you think to his music and great if you could consider him for a show.
Thanks very much,
Theo Hall

Hi again Ken

Further to previous message, I also represent Lizanne Knott,  another US-based singer/songwriter for whom I am searching for gigs in the UK, this time in September and October 2013.

Here are a couple of comments about her ...
"Absolutely gorgeous music.  We've rarely had as big a reaction to any artist in recent years as the one we had for Lizanne Knott." (Bob Harris: BBC Radio 2)
 
"Lizanne Knott is one of an increasing number of singer-songwriters that deserve to be household names."
(Mik Gaffney - Properganda #6, Proper Records UK)

Lizanne's website is at http://www.lizanneknott.com/.

I toured Lizanne in the UK for the first time in September-October 2012 and she was very well received indeed.  
She has the unusual accolade of sellng at least one CD to every member of her audience at the Liverpool Philharmonic gig - I've
never heard of that happening before; most unusual.  BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris continues to be a big fan and plugs her recordings frquently.

Lizanne's tour dates are currently ...

SEPTEMBER 2013
Thu 26 Sep 13    Bury Met Arts
Fri 27 Sep 13    Liverpool
Sat 28 Sep 13    Dolgellau
Sun 29 to Tue 1   available
    
OCTOBER 2013

Sun 6    Kinross David Mundell
Mon 7   available    
Tue 8    Glasgow Star FC
Wed 9 to 16    available
Thu 17    Swindon AC

Lizanne will be travelling with her partner Glenn Barrett (guitar).  Would you be able to host a concert for Lizanne during this tour?

Please do tell me to send you a copy of her new CD, "Standing In The English Rain".

For more information about Lizanne please have a look in our DropBox at her promo pack --- https://www.dropbox.com/sh/c0cxq6zhtft27ci/H6rMRYOuyv

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Ken

Hope you're keeping well. :)

I represent Jim Page from Seattle whose website is at http://www.jimpage.net/ and for whom I am searching for gigs in the UK in October 2013.

Jim has been writing songs for moons it seems - since the late 1960s, so he's been around a bit.  He released his first vinyl album of original
music “A Shot Of The Usual,” in 1975, followed quickly by two more before he arrived in the UK in 1977 to live and tour for the next six years.  
Christy Moore popularised some of Jim's songs, most notably "Hiroshina-Nagasaki Russian Roulette".  In 2007 Jim was included in an all star
list of the “50 Most Influential Musicians In Seattle History.”  Back in the USA now for about 30 years he's had a hankering to tread the
UK boards again and is touring here throughout October 2013.

OCTOBER 2013
Tue 1 to Fri 4  available    
Sat 5    Belper
Sun 6    London Walthamstow
Mon 7 to Thu 10  available    
Fri 11    Trowbridge (Wilts) Village Pump
Sat 12 and Sun 13  available    
Mon 14    Stirling FC
Tue 15 to Sun 20  available
Mon 21 to Sun 27   Irish dates

Would you be able to host a concert for Jim during this tour?

For more information on Jim please do have a look in our DropBox at his promo pack --- https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8lg22ljwrto2skt/ZKtlyOzXSK (there are six audio tracks there.  I don't have CD's to mail out for Jim.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Ken,

We're a roots band (trio: banjo, guitar, upright bass, all sing) from Canada on our debut tour of Europe this May.  We'd love to do a House Concert with you (we host them ourselves on Vancouver Island at home. I also host a radio show- http://bethemedia.ca/).

Our music: From gorgeous vocal harmonies to foot-stomping fun, Puzzleroot includes slide banjo and country picking at its best!

We're releasing our 2nd CD next month.

Check out our site for music and more: http://www.puzzleroot.com/
or find our EPKs at:

Warm wishes,
Marian
