The European House Concert  Hub

The place for concert hosts, guests and artists to network

Reviews!

Remo Ricaldone's review for www.planetcountry.it!

Robert Coleman Trussell is a Texas singer originally from Kingsville, but currently residing in Kansas City. His debut 2005 “Texas Gothic” CD was a successful Roots and Americana work both in Europe and the States.

Keeping the blues alive

It is with great pride I have been blessed to be able to continue to sing my blue's at this young age, LOL. It is my honest desire to be able to take these blues all over the world. I have the old school blues which are the daddy of all blues. I know every musician is aware of the fact that the old school blue's musician's are going on to glory or on their way, I for one, as long as the Creator allow me intend to present my blues to audiences all over the world, so far this has not beeen… Continue

House concert photographs

Hello people

I've started uploading various photos from house concerts held at the makeshift theatre (Dunnet Head lighthouse). I will be in communications with our "house photographer" Fergus Mathers to get a selection of the best shots from all concerts held over 4 years & promptly upload them.

From Steve & Jubal Lee Young all the way through to Little Feat duo Paul & Fred, watch this space

Sleeve Notes

When I was a kid in the 70s, the first albums I ever bought were second hand copies of early Beatles albums. They used to have sleeve notes that told you a little bit about how the track was put together, who was singing/playing what, etc. Since, along with George Martin, they were pretty much inventing multi-track recording as they went along, they'd mention if John or Paul were double-tracked, or singing their own harmonies too. I thought it was really good, and handy if you wanted to know… Continue

Perceptions Ours Issue 1 (Orignal release date November 7, 2008) By Jillian LaDage

As I pull together the past four years of traveling, researching, and writing my debut album, I sit looking out my office window at a gray stormy day. Winter is almost upon us as the album becomes ready for release and indeed Midwinter, as it once was called, comes for us on November 8th. As I have recently learned, it is when the sun reaches 15 degrees Scorpio in the circle of the zodiac in the sky and is one of the days known as "cross quarter days," the mid-point between the solstices and… Continue
