You asked whether we are doing house concerts still. We are but usually only for people touring. As we live in Tynemouth and you're from N/c that doesn't quite fit. However if we need a support for someone that might work. My band are…"

If gig goer, what is your local house concert contact details?
We have hosted a couple in our kitchen but also have seen several at Porters Cafe Bar in Yynemouth station
If host are you an open house concert? ie Can non members apply?
Celia & I both play in the KATY FREEWAY, the northeast's top country rock band. Our kids have now left home and we have a big house that we rattle around in. Visiting artists from all over the world have stayed to occasionally so they don't have to fund a hotel room. A couple have done house concerts to 20-40 people and they have been great nights.
Celia, who also has her solo CD out [see iTunes & Amazon] would be keen to do house concerts as well

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.
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.

Brian will be in Germany doing some work with the great guitarist Lulo Reinhardt (grand-nephew of Django) in late August. Brian is a fluent German speaker and can easily give a full concert or a workshop or masterclass entirely in German. He could also do this in Spanish, although perhaps a little less fluently.
Brian has a good track record over here since he's also the brains behind the annual touring guitar festival called the International Guitar Night, which Stoneyport has worked for in the UK since 2007. See http://www.internationalguitarnight.com/. Brian got IGN going in the USA in 1995 and since 2000 it has become a major North American touring event.
North Shields has obviously changed a bit since I was kid growing up in Percy Main and Tynemouth in the 1950s-1960s! :)
I represent two US-based singer/songwriters for whom I am searching for gigs in the UK in September and October 2013.
First there is Lizanne Knott. 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)
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 Tue 1 to Thu 3 available Fri 4 Torphicen Bill Lothian Sat 5 Cromarty, The Old Brewery 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".
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.

So nice to find you here. I'm prepping the second edition of our free house concert guide, and would love to know your opinion. I'd also be grateful for any fun or interesting stories you may have as a result of the concerts you've hosted.
My name's Davey Byrne and im a musician who performs under the title of 'Another Disco Party' (My birhname was already taken!) . Im currently trying to put together a project with a good friend of mine, Grant George, of indie rock band 'The Barents Sea'.
Our plan is to hit the road in April, just ourselves and our guitars and play acoustic sets in as many places as humanly possible over the course of a week or so, and document the entire trip with the intention of putting together a documentary. We currently have a facebook page setup dedicated to the project here
We're not looking for any financial gain from any of these events (although of course donations and help with expenses, even a hot meal, are welcome).
Id be really so so grateful if you can help out in any way, or point us in the direction of some people who would be interested in helping us out. Likewise if you could pass this information on to as many people as possible that would be fantastic.
