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

Happy Hosting, Happy New Year - Rob Ellen

So Tim Gleeson has come back from the studio...

So Tim Gleeson has come back from the studio with a new release, eh? I’m worried…because I know this kind of guy: he steals hearts. No, not at cards: your sweetie. He’s a Pied Piper of sorts; that’s the harmonica he toots instead of a flute. And he plays the “Sensitive Guy” card with an acoustic guitar in his hand. This is the great-great-great…grandson of a troubadour in Ye Olde Days who would craft a love song wrapped in a sunny day with a smile on his face—and the fair maidens of the town… Continue

The Highlands Tour 2009

Hey everyone,

I've been a bit slow getting this out but wanted everyone to know how great the Highland Tour went this summer. First of all, let me thank Mr. Rob Ellen (the man behind the tour) for his friendship and hard work. I've had the pleasure of knowing Rob since about 2005 when my first cd "Fabletown" came out. He has handled all of my PR work throughout the UK, Europe etc since then, including my second cd "Rarely Fall" in 2008. Thanks again Rob!

Ok now the tour. I hit… Continue

Sometimes Stuff Just Happens

I don't usually do alot of blogging, but I thought in this case, I needed to explain the recent sparseness of my calender. Sparse is probably not the correct word. Barren would most likely be a better choice.

About six months ago, I started having some pain in my fingers, when I played guitar, or practiced my guitar playing. Before long the pain became excruciating, and my fingers began to turn red and swell. The symptoms were worse, anytime I picked up ice to put in my glass, or when I… Continue

Delighted that House Concerts are becoming popular in the UK

Just joined this fabulous website thanks to our friend Mike. It's so great to see House Concerts becoming more popular in the UK and Tinderbox would love to be a part of that.

We have a big House Concert Tour in the states in May 2010 but it would be great to arrange something similar closer to home.

We are currently booking for 2010
