The House Concert Hub & Flyinshoes Review are proud to be supporting "We Shall Overcome"

Born out of the shock of the General Election result, anger  over injustice in the governments programme of austerity cuts and a belief things can be better, a group of musicians lead by Yorkshire Artists Joe Solo & Matt Hill decided in the time honoured way, that they wanted to protest, but instead of (maybe even as well as) in equally time honoured way, settling for writing a protest song, they…

"MEDICINE in the modern sense is perceived to be a treatment for ailment, but in the ancient sense particularly in the minds of Native Americans, medicine is all that is good in nature connecting the spirit world with the physical. The Medicine of music can be a direct connection with all it is to be human and also our best prescription for the disconnecting-ailments of our modern culture"

Medicine Show Radio is the broadcast arm of The Medicine Show network which offers an unrivalled comprehensive modern multi-media promotion and tour delivery system for the independently minded musician, our aim is to help keep music live. 

Medicine Show Records is a Hi Tech, Hi Fi, Low Cost solution to promoting, recording and releasing music. Our aim is to help our family fold and friends reach more people and have more opportunities to play and sell their music. The Medicine Mobile is more than a mobile studio its effectively a mobile record label.

The Medicine Show Mobile Studio and Concert Duplication System runs from our Camper Van. It offers a tried and tested opportunity for extra tour revenue, travel, accommodation, promotion, and publicity on the road. 

The Medicine Show Mobile Studio is equipped to not only record live shows and broadcast/videocast them from the road, but is designed also to duplicate shows ready for sale at the show to the audience of that given show as well as offering accommodation and comfortable travel.

Coupled with the booking opportunities offered by The European House Concert Hub (which was founded by Medicine Music and is celebrating its 5th year) and the promotional opportunities offered by Medicine Show Promo and our webzine community of Roots Music Bloggers and Podcaster at Flyinshoes Review + support from the widely syndicated and popular Medicine Show Radio all support by our fast growing presence across every major social media platform, The Medicine Show network offers an unrivaled comprehensive modern multi-media promotion and tour delivery system. for more information.

To celebrate we are released a compilation CD at the beginning of 2014, to help raise the profile of House Concerts in general and the hub in particular and to further highlight those on the hub looking for dates in 2014. It was popular with our members and supporters, it achieved airplay over Europe and it got gigs for the contributing artists. So were delighted to present Vol 2 

All artists are booking shows and will play in your home for your friends family and their fans.

Hi Rob, thanks so much for your welcome. It's a great thing to be a part of. I'm currently holed up in Denmark and am going to play a house concert here on Saturday. It was after I'd organised this that my hosts told me about your network. Look forward to working more closely together in the future . Cheers

Hi Rob,

I'm hoping this is a way to send you a message, there's probably another way but I can't find it! Please, how do I delete my video - it's past its sell-by date, and also is not typical of what I do nowadays. I would like to post something that represents the sort of stuff I do normally - I know how to add videos, just not how to delete! Thanks very much for your help!

Cheers, Anna

Hello everyone,My name is Paul Hogeterp and I am a musician and long-time resident of Hamilton, Canada.  In November 2014, I released my debut solo record under the moniker Low Country Hill.  Recorded by Dave King at his lovely barn-turned-studio on the outskirts of Hamilton, the record features a cast of talented compadres, family and guest musicians including Pat Sansone of Wilco and Bill Dillon (Joni Mitchell, Peter Gabriel).   Low Country Hill was nominated for a 2015 Hamilton Music Award…See More
