The end of a rollercoaster year

OK so moaning about making music is likely to elicit the response, "Tell it to the miners!" And justifiably so. As hard work goes, sitting in pubs and lapping up the applause from the dozen drunks in front of you isn't up there with deep sea welding or portaloo cleaning at a big festival. But God damn it, we've earned our right to WHINGE! It's what we do when we're together. And boy, is it getting harder out there. Nobody is buying albums, and at the same time, while the big dogs might be… Continue

Music, bookings, and community in the digital world

Hi folks~



I'm a new member here, from Alaska in the United States. I had already opened a page at the Concertsinyourhome.com site, and came across this one while working on some booking dates.



When I first began playing music and looking for gigs, I was making phone calls and sending out promo packages with a cassette tape! CDs were way beyond non-commercially signed musicians, and the Mac Classic II (along with the early recording software) didn't really exist yet. I got… Continue

Reviews from Holland and Belgium....

Google translations of these quotes are below:



Westcoastpop van het zuiverste water, zoals verderop ‘First Love Freezes’ en ‘The Night She Learned To Drive’ met hun sprankelende countryfolkpop het gehoor strelen….Tangle- Free World’ is een veelzijdige en bloedmooie popplaat, waar ook de meer puristisch ingestelde americana liefhebber, veel luisterplezier aan zal beleven.” -- Huub Thomassen, Real Roots Café



Ook "Tangle-Free World" bevat weer… Continue

Ray Bonneville's Gig

Last night we had a great gig of Canadian American Ray Bonneville in our livingroom. About 15 people did go exiting during the songs. Ray is a great performer, his lyrics mostly have a message in it and his guitar playing is unique. He shows the art of not to fill in too much. That's why his way of performing is relaxed and a great pleasant to hear. We like to have Ray back in… Continue

Walter Strauss at Sal n' Andy's House Concerts

Re-tuning time is story-telling time.



Last Thursday, we hosted our first house concert. The artist was American guitarist Walter Strauss.



I have to say, it was a little nerve-racking wondering how many people would show up. We had had quite a few people say they were coming, but all the same we couldn't be sure until the time came. As it was, we needn't have worried; we had a good crowd (about 25).



As we had… Continue

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
