The European House Concert  Hub

The place for concert hosts, guests and artists to network

If you haven’t hosted a House Concert yet, please make it a new year’s resolution!

Why not invite your favourite independent musician to play for your friends family and his fans in your front room, I’ll be surprised if he/she won’t show up sometime this year and play for you, let me know about it and if The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile is loose is near enough we’ll come and broadcast it too. If you would like to help keep the wheels on the Hub and on The Moose become a patron at

The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile Lewes to Lewis Summer Stravaig with Carrington MacDuffie

Can you help please? We would like to bring the Moose Mobile to record and/or broadcast from your choice of venue on  The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile "Lewes to Lewis Summer Stravaig" 


I met Carrington MacDuffie in Austin, she played and wowed our Threadgill's Medicine Show-case during SXSW with her wndrfl band, she is easily one of the most dynamic performer (and people) I know, she’s a songstress, a poet, an actress and broadcaster, a philosophiser, a real reassurance woman if ever there was one and a proud MacDuffie Woman toboot (true story) I will explain.


The MacDuffies are an old clan of Dalriada  the ancient Kingdome of Scots, Fairy Charmers of renowned from the outer Hebrides, the name translates into “a dark-featured, peaceful person” .


She’s a MacDuffie for sure and one that’s never been home, so we decided to share this adventure at the end of her first European tour which was coming together when we met, and she wanted to celebrate the Salstice in Scotland so I suggested Calanish on Lewis (The MacDuffies hail from Uist and Colonsay) and Calanish is in sight of Carloway where my Grandfather John MacKay was second son of the croft and  was born (true Story), I never have been back for the Solstice, a big BIG bucket list goal for this pilgrim.


Britain we need your help to make this all happen and will will be driving the Moose by your door.

Carrington is on a 30 date tour of Europe as of April 25, through Germany Holland Austria and France   she arrives London on June 6th, we have a house concert in Lewes (ancient fire festival renowned wicken town of Anne of Cleaves), we have a Medicine Show Revue for Bath Fringe Festival, house concerts in Liverpool & Perth, several radio shows along the way,  an opening show in Aberdeen on my birthday, all coming together and she opens for Tom Mason in Nairn my home town at the end. So it makes sense to call the Stravaig “from Lewes The Lewis and Harris”


We need more of the same to fill dates along the way anywhere you think it might fit, we want to come to your town, your radio show, your session, your open mic, your house concert even and record and broadcast your show from the Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile (I’m also scouting for acts to promote in the states in the next Stateside Stravaig). The goal in doing so is to introduce Carrington, her music and her spirit to Britin and  my friends, make new friends and reconnect her with her ancient family and me with mine.


Will you help us? Come to Callanish with us for the Solstice, you would be very welcome!

Carrington plays our Threadgill's Medicine Show-case during SXSW in Austin recently.
