Hi, guys-

I wrote this blog about a month ago, commemorating the fall of The Berlin Wall, and I wasn't a member yet at House Concert Hub so I thought that I would include it here. Also, I'll be returning to Berlin for a solo acoustic tour in March of 2010 and that will mark the 20th anniversary of my stay there and will be in the 20th anniversary year of the fall of the wall. Thanks to everyone who has been so supportive of me and my work since I joined your network only a week or so… Continue

Tony Cox at Cromarty Old Brewery 15 January

On Friday 15th January, the Cromarty Old Brewery welcomes Tony Cox, a multiple award-winning acoustic

guitarist from Zimbabwe and South Africa.

Tony has become a veritable icon of the guitar in southern Africa. He charges his music with African imagery, using all the finger-style techniques he had absorbed over the years from such as Leo Kottke, Sipho Mchunu and Noise Khanyile. And on-stage, he is warm and engaging with the… Continue

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

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

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
