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

Who wants it ...

This is a great idea, - not an entirely new one (healthy concerts got in there first i believe) but nonetheless we love the idea of turning up at somebody's home and doing a performance for people who are interested in hearing our music and a bunch of their mates, and actually having the chance to meet them personally in a relaxed enviroment. Buuuuuuuuuut an it's a sizeable butt as they say, is there enough of a demand for it from ordinary folks who have the time on their hands and are… Continue

On tour in the UK and hoping to bring Bakhoor and the show your way...

Hello friends in the UK.

My name is Lorelei, there's a pile of information about me on my sites and on my site. I won't repeat it here.

Suffice to say, I'm on a projected 200-date tour of the UK in 2009-2010, to dig up the roots of my ancestors and to carry on my journey as an inquiring traveller and as someone who deeply and truly wants to know what makes us tick. As I share my stories and songs, I am equally intrigued by the… Continue

After reading our today local newspaper, I had my moment again. Maybe you reconize such a moment, in wich you feel like a victim. A victim of the freedom of journalists. These people are given you different kinds of feelings. But in my case, most of the time after reading the local newspaper I feel unhappy. I wonder how these people feel after finishing their dayjob. I hope they don't feel satisfied. I hope they do not sleep at nights. I hope they… Continue

Songs in the Key of Life Sharp

I am a serious music listener.

By which I mean, of course, that I am an anorak. I hunker beside the stero, clutching the sleeve notes in a sweaty fist and nod knowingly everytime I convince myself that I, king of the fans, understand every allusion, reference and sly invocation projected by my favourite artists.

I think the term "wanker" also applies.

I've been this way all my life. I like to be in on the joke - thus side-stepping much of the worry that I am the… Continue

How To Get Discovered In Christian Music

From the Founder and President of Incubator Creative Group, Nate Sakany.

I love to help early stage Christian musicians develop their ministries to the thriving level. And I've been doing so for 30 years. It's all about discovering, defining, developing and deploying your vision to reach your world through the power of music. Most of what is taught about the music business won't help you at the emerging stage. The realities for… Continue
