The European House Concert  Hub

The place for concert hosts, guests and artists to network

Listen again to the great Ralph McLean chatting to Hub founder Rob Ellen on BBC Radio Ulster about his quest to encourage concerts in peoples own homes, when the Medicine Show toured Ireland this year with Chuck Hawthorne and Libby Koch (featuring interview and session with them too) 35 minutes into the show.(click picture)

 

KENT NIELSEN (DK) – Ukulele Folk Punk / Singer/Songwriter lloking for gigs in the UK!

Hi there,

I'm a solo ukulele singer/songwriter from Denmark, but based in Germany. I’m aiming at gigging in the UK, Sep 30th - Oct 21st, in 2017. I'm basically interested in anything, be it support slots, folk clubs, open mike nights, benefits, house concerts you name it. Accommodation and/or food would be nice, a bit of money towards travelling costs would be plain awesome.

I'll be operating out of London while in the UK, due to the stretch of time I’ll be staying.

KENT NIELSEN (DK) – Ukulele Folk Punk / Singer/Songwriter!

„Lyrics like a punch in the gut, painfully reminding you of your own wounds“. (Christian Elsrodt / Folker! Magazine) Kent Nielsen is Danish but living in Lübeck (North Germany). He’s got a history as an author, percussionist, shoe shop clerk, record label guy, mail order honcho, night porter and ukulele player a. o.

But there’s one thing he’s been doing for ages – and that’s singing.He just completed an old project – his first „solo album“. Roughly half of the roots rock colored songs were written together with Stefan Kletetzka (DEEP RIVER), some are brand new while a couple dates back to Kent and Stefan’s time in ONE BAR TOWN. Four covers were added, one by JOHN HARTFORD and another three originally written by GLEN CAMPBELL, EDDIE & THE HOT RODS and C.V. JØRGENSEN featuring Kent solo on the ukulele. Three more songs, drenched in Mod and 60s sounds, were written together with Helge Reich (JAM TODAY). The album also includes guest appearances from George Whitfield (FIDDLEBOX, ex-PRESSGANG) and Martin Wenk (CALEXICO, NADA SURF, JUDITH HOLOFERNES).

“I've always been fortunate to work with some extremely gifted songwriting partners. Hopefully we‘ve managed an album as diverse and varied as I prefer them.” (Kent Nielsen)

The press about ‘Shotgun Seat DJ’:

“ … Whoever is capable of „whistling“ EDDIE AND THE HOT RODS on the ukulele, has got to be a good human being”. (8 out of 10, Ox # 128 10-11/2016)

"There are echoes of Jon Langford and Ryan Adams. ... There's something more immediate about this stripped-down version of Kent Nielsen". (R2 Magazine (UK) / Peter Tomkins)

„ … between the HOT RODS and CALEXICO. The Power of the songs is enormous, while leaving enough room for the traditional band format. One wants to hear these songs loud, and although Kent Nielsen plays Folk or Americana, at least technically seen, the tunes invite you to bang your head. Folk hasn’t got to be “nice” and also, today’s musical world still has more to offer than sentimental love songs. Thanks to Kent Nielsen”. (Chris Elstrodt, Folker Magazin, 11/2016)

" ... add lyrics, which bear testimony to the life experience of the man (for instance 'Suffer in Subtlety". (8 out of 10, Slam Music Magazin # 88, 11-12/2016)

„ … (the album) turned out very diverse and exciting. Every song is holding surprises and unexpected turns … immensely grounded and blessed with loads of soul“. (Lars / Trust)

Recommended listening tips, the snappy single ‘Star Wars Diaries’, the folky ‘Platform No. 3’ and the 60s tinged ‘Suffer In Subtlety’ to name a couple. An elegant and diverse Album which, despite all the variety, comes across with one consistent sound”. (Manfred Upnmoor / Ultimo)

“… an infectious mix of folk, country and rock, with an unmistakable instinct for the right groove flattering your hearing senses. Full of warmth and grace, Kent tells you stories from his life mixed with the odd cover version by John Hartfield and Glen Campbell a. o.” (5 out of 6 points, inMusic # 09-10/2016)

„ … with him (Kent) it’s all about the song – whether it’s cover versions of tunes essential to him such as ‘Gentle On My Mind’, catchy roots rock tracks, country swing or solo on the ukulele. Thus ‘Shotgun Seat DJ’ has turned out a mirror image of just exactly what characterizes Kent Nielsen as a roots musician.” (Ullrich Mauer, gästeliste.de, 09/2016)

"Fortunately for people who don’t like things too sparse, he has loads of guitar, piano and rhythm section help here and can be quite electric at times. So this is far more folk rock than punk rock, although the themes are somewhat similar. But of course they always have been. Good record, no matter what your preference." (Folkworld.de / David Hintz)
