The European House Concert  Hub

The place for concert hosts, guests and artists to network

Listen again to the great Ralph McLean chatting to Hub founder Rob Ellen on BBC Radio Ulster about his quest to encourage concerts in peoples own homes, when the Medicine Show toured Ireland this year with Chuck Hawthorne and Libby Koch (featuring interview and session with them too) 35 minutes into the show.(click picture)

Looking for house concerts for piano trio January 4-8.

I'll be traveling in Northern Europe with my traditional jazz and American roots music piano trio in early January. We're trying to fill some dates between January 4-8, wondering if anyone here would be interested in having us perform at their house concert series. Below is a link to a video where you can see what we do. you can email me directly at jaredengel<at>gmail<dot>com.  Cheers!…See More
