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

Jen Hajj touring UK in Fall 2014

Comfort food in musical form, delivered with an angel's voice.  It's what you'd want to hear while sharing a warm blueberry muffin with a dear friend, or settling down in your favorite chair for a delicious nap.  It is the music you want while you pet a purring cat.  It is deeply thoughtful, yet confident, rousing.  It stirs you to be the person you want to be. That's Jen.

Tour dates in the UK in late September, early October 2014.

You can hear Jen's music at…

'Santa Sleighed My Gal' ... Could this be the antidote to SLADE?

Seems Misky stumbled upon this scary story about Santa Claus and made it into a Christmas song with a couple of  random #skifflers n' folk who got press ganged into singing ... It's a dark story of infidelity and madness and a welcome relief from SLADE at Christmas .... "It was late Christmas eve when he came down my flue...." ENJOY
