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)

 

Paul Sprawl looking for house concerts in Europe

Hi,

I'm a full-time traveling troubadour based in the US (quit the day job in '97) and interested in playing some house concerts in Europe. I have shows booked in Germany on Nov. 3, 4, 10, 11 and am available before or after those dates. I have an offer for Oct. 28 near Lancaster and need more to come to the UK.  Thanks for your time,  Paul


Here are some videos of my work:

Some recent reviews of shows by presenters/promoters:

"Paul played an intense concert, blending playful with passionate, songs of the road with songs of politics, shorter with longer, and throughout showing a tremendous mastery of his voice and of his guitar. It was musically rich and intellectually challenging, and our audience gladly went deep with him."
(T. Kohlenberg)  Boston, Mass

"Paul put on a fantastic performance for us this weekend. To say that his guitar style was extraordinaire would be an understatement. It was jaw-dropping. Check him out folks."
(D. Miskey)    Edmonton, AB

"Paul is truly one-of-a-kind. If you like to watch and hear masterful performance of guitar and harmonica and storytelling - almost all three at the same time, Paul is your man. He may be singing, but he's always telling you a story. Think Bruce Cockburn with a serious twist. You'll hear "wow" more than once during the show."
(F. Snyder)   Lutz, FL

"Paul Sprawl is an amazing performer, powered by a set of mysteriously talented fingers, and a solid, informed, world view which permeates his songs and playing. A true original in writing, playing and singing. At times evocative of Leo Kottke and Bruce Cockburn."
(C. Bernhardt)  Richardson, TX

“Paul Sprawl walked into an open mic I was hosting in Black Mountain, NC about 10 years ago and after playing 3 songs proceeded to sell every person in the room a cd. This guy is a prodigy. One of the best I've seen. There are no loops, no backing tracks, just Paul Sprawl using his voice, his hands, a guitar, a slide and a harmonica. And he's a road warrior too.” (Ed Anderson)  Bloomington, IL

Looking for house concerts for piano trio January 4-8.

I'll be traveling in Northern Europe with my traditional jazz and American roots music piano trio in early January. We're trying to fill some dates between January 4-8, wondering if anyone here would be interested in having us perform at their house concert series. Below is a link to a video where you can see what we do. you can email me directly at jaredengel<at>gmail<dot>com.  Cheers!…See More
