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)

 

The Medicine Show on The Road Holland Germany Switzerland France Spain Portugal

The Medicine Show Moose Mobile is in Holland heading for Portugal with Gypsy Traveler Musician Mr Moon and popular Scottish Songstress Entertainer and Radio Dee Jay Lady Miss Emma.

Is there anything we can do with you or for you along the way? Radio sessions, interview gigs, House Concerts, supports I'll come and broadcast and stream your concert anything. Let me know we would love to come visit, we are self contained in a camper van in convoy with Lady Miss Emma in her Caravan of Love with PA and broadcast equipment.

 

Medicine Shows traveled the old west until very recently, selling snake oil remedies, offering entertainment and giving artists a helping hand along the way. Hank Williams and Roy Acuff cut their musical teeth on Medicine Shows, Hank met his muse and future wife Audrey on a travelling Medicine Show. They were later to marry on the road in an Alabama gas station. The rest is well documented in every Hank Williams song and country music history book.  

 

 

I do what he can to support independently minded roots musicians and venues. I founded the European House Concert Hub www.houseconcert.eu for that purpose and am asking our members here to get involved in this adventure. I am in the process of converting my camper into TV studio and setting up Independence Music TV www.gofundme.com/imusictv hence the travelling to raise funds, awareness & win friends for the idea, would you help please.

 

A bit about Mr Moon

Mr Moon (and the Beautiful Dream) is a gypsy traveller musician, street entertainer and vagabond, he is home free and has always earned his crust ACROSS THE WORLD by means of his travellings and prodigious talent . The Moose is The Medicine Show Radio mobile home, come TV/radio studio, equipped to stream the music and crack live from the road. 

Mr Moon plays Old Time mountain music, songs of the travellers and Mr Moon originals on his antique fiddle earned by soul, and latterly floated on a bed of worldy rhythmic guitar loop textures. He is as happy playing street corners as Festivals or House Concerts as Arts Centres. 

Mr Moon is a legend among the street entertainers and itinerant musicians from Picton New Zealand to St Ives Cornwall, he travelled to India to learn the sitar and invented a guitar tuning so he could replicate the music on his guitar, he lived and soaked up the music and culture of Thailand, travelled to The Gambia and recorded with the Griots, all the time absorbing that music into his music.

He's spent the summer once more in Cornwall, where he has become part of the fabric of the music scene over the years, with a new album guided by savant musician producer Jack Sadler capturing him in a particularly productive frame of mind. The album (proclaimed as his master piece by Ian Semple of Penwith Radio) is ready to take to the world, so I intend to help him do just that.

A bit about me

Rob Ellen has been involved in music development in Scotland for nearly 30 years. He keeps a trail open around the Highlands in particular for touring roots musicians, small combos and bands. He helped found and continues to help organise Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival. He also organises the Tartan Heart Fringe and Potting Shed Stage with the help of Square Wheels Cycles of Strathpeffer.

 

Rob will tour many of The Medicine Show favourites around Europe through "The Medicine Show On The Road" 2012 saw him and Hamish Roberts travel 6,500 miles play 23 shows, 10 Radio Stations and 7 countries, to get to WOMEX in Greece where he was invited to talk on DIY Music. He is now permanently on the road raising funds and awareness for Independence Music TV

His Highland tour has become a pilgrimage with American Musicians in particular, wishing to trace the roots of "The Great American Song Book" back to its home in the Highlands. Rob says, "I am fascinated by the song lines and tracing the roots of music, but equally fascinated with the contemporary shoots that keep it all alive and well".

 

Rob's particular interest, is supporting and setting up House Concerts. This is a chance to experience music in a warm and intimate environment, i.e. a private house or your home. Rob maintains the Euro House Concert Hub. This is a place for artists, guests and hosts to social network.
