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)

As we're preparing to head into the studio to record a new album, some old and new thoughts on songs are surfacing.
What is it that makes a song shine? Is it the structure, theme, a catchy refrain...? Yes, all of these, I know, and much more.
I am always amazed to see Forest in the act of song writing. It's like watching a sculptor give shape to a piece of marble. I like watching it come to life and recognizing its features.
And then, in a matter of…

Festive Concerts in Italy last weekend...

i love Italy!



I feel so lucky to have played two lovely shows near Como, Italy, this past weekend! Thank you Damiano Della Torre (keyboards/vocals) for putting together a great cast of musician friends both nights - different players, various vibes, and marvelous feelings and sound!



Saturday night's show was in a bit of an unlikely venue: a fluorescent lit newsstand type coffee bar called Punto Bar, in San Fedele Intelvi, a small town in the hills above Lake Como. if i…

Europe

Just signed up for this service...I can't wait to bring my music to the "old Country."  I've always wanted to tour Europe, and I'm hoping this will be a double whammy.  I'm going to try to book some shows overseas for 2-3 weeks in the late spring or summer.  Hopefully I can make it happen.  I just love the hell out of music and life and can't wait to try this whole thing out!

How did he manage to capture the expressions and feelings we had? He must have felt what we were feeling, because as I stood there and gazed in wonderment at his…

R.I.P. Johnnie Fats music legend (The song is over but the melody will linger)



John (Fats) Sutherland had been performing since his early teens and was a stalwart on the Caithness music scene. Photo: Fergus Mather.

A great life in music was ended by a heart attack last Thursday, we lost one of the worlds true orginals and I lost a friend.

What you saw was what you got with John, he was as staight as the nights are long at this time of year in Caithness, and when he talked he talked with as much authority as he played his guitar, needless to say in both cases, I was happy to do some listening…
