The European House Concert  Hub

The place for concert hosts, guests and artists to network

If you haven’t hosted a House Concert yet, please make it a new year’s resolution!

Why not invite your favourite independent musician to play for your friends family and his fans in your front room, I’ll be surprised if he/she won’t show up sometime this year and play for you, let me know about it and if The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile is loose is near enough we’ll come and broadcast it too. If you would like to help keep the wheels on the Hub and on The Moose become a patron at

Copenhagen House Concert for October the 1st anyone?

Hi there guys from a new member.

I am in Copenhagen for the month of September playing a covers residency at Rosie McGee's and fly out to London on the 2nd of October. My only free night is October the 1st and I would love to play a house concert in Copenhagen that night if anyone is keen? I love playing house concerts (with original songs with a cover or two thrown in) and it's great to find a site that is dedicated to such loveliness. Well done Rob ;)
