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)

Tears in my eyes

Tears in my eyes,

crumbs on my shirt,

listening to The King,

drinking away the hurt.




As Barney McKenna of the Dubliners would sing - I wish I had someone to love me, someone to call me their own. I don't - and so I can do as I please at 2am in the morning. I sit here drinking irn bru, eating white caramel shortcakes, watching Elvis.



Seems like a lifetime since I was in Europe, over two weeks I've been back, but I sure got a taste for touring last… Continue

How is it possible to have a job and keep on top of gigging and all these different sites

I always have the best intentions when i sign up to sites like House Concert Hub. The are great places to network, meet like minded musicians, venues etc. But something has to give... There just aren't enough hours in the week. 28 Hours in the Office, 12 hours gigging (OK so each gig is just over 2 hours, but travelling setting up etc), 3 hours e-mailing, 2 hours web updates, numerous hours on social networking, maybe a little practice...



It all comes down to priorities. My favourite… Continue
