Dear Sal & Andy,

How are you?

I am specifically looking to fill the following Dates:

May 28th
Aug 24th and 26th

However, if you find my Profile interesting, yet the Dates don't suit you. I'm sure we can work something out.

Would be thrilled to hear from you.

Kind regards,

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).

Dear Sal & Andy:

I See Hawks In L.A. are releasing two records in May: our own and an EP collaboration with the Good Intentions which turned out quite well. We plan on touring UK/Ireland this summer.

It's a bit of short notice (our agent Bob Butler of Grapevine has sadly passed away), but if you have a slot for us we'd love to play one of your concerts. Our tour window is July through mid-August, though we could head over earlier if that's when most of the shows are happening.

Rob Ellen will give us a hearty recommendation! We are southern California's leading alt country folk band. We've done 3 or 4 tours of UK/Ireland, have been in the Euro Americana chart top ten 3 times, and have Geraint of G Promo PR on board. He got us great press and BBC appearances last time and will be invaluable in promoting live shows. My email is below, can send you our bio and sneak preview of our forthcoming CDs.

Here is a listening link to all seven of our previous releases and live shows:

Hello Sal & Andy! I'm an Alaskan artist who will be in the UK this August, with British artist Jen Armstrong supporting. Will you consider my music for your house concert audiences? Here is info about KPA house concerts plus comments from hosts of my past shows:

I look forward to hearing from you about the possibilities. 

Thank you & blessings to you,

Hi Sal and Andy,

Celebrated ‘Top 10’ Canadian Roots, Alt-Country, Folk-Blues singer songwriter Kenny Butterill is coming to England. My name is Christine Crandell and I'm working with Kenny to book his tour calendar for house concerts during July 17th through July 24th and August 8th through August 15th in the UK.  You were highly recommended by Rob Ellen from the Medicine Show and Euro House Concert Hub as the perfect fit for Kenny’s music.

All house concerts will be heavily promoted at Kenny Butterill’s website, his Facebook and Twitter accounts all of which have more Scottish and UK followers than either Canada or the USA. A new single will be released to Europe prior to this tour and we will also do a full UK promo campaign with Rob Ellen (Medicine Music Show) that will include Kenny visiting DJ's and radio stations in your town for in-studio sessions and live promo for your house concert.

Throughout Europe, Kenny’s most recent single 'Dead End Of The Dirt Road' (from the new album “Troubadour Tales”) started out the year at the top of the Hotdisc Top 40 and stayed there for several weeks and continues to be a DJ favorite.

“If you like Gordon Lightfoot, J.J. Cale or John Prine, you’ll love Kenny”. His live show has a warm ambience of an intimate setting with an up-close, personal vibe with his three piece band including Kenny on guitar, his rack harp/mando player and his guitar sideman.

For complete info, live video, reviews, etc. please visit the Kenny Butterill online press kit: EPK

We hope this strikes a responsive chord with you!

Please let me know at your earliest convenience if you are interested in booking Kenny Butterill. Thank you very much!

Hi Sal n' Andy

Lizanne Knott, singer/songwriter is touring here in Oct 2014 (3rd tour).

Philadelphia-based songwriter and singer, Lizanne Knott (see has joined forces with LA-based songwriter and singer Bill Reveles (see attached and

The duo will tour under the name "Hey Harley" (taken from one of Bill's songs) and will be billed as "Hey Harley (feat: Lizanne Knott and Bill Reveles)".

BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris is a major fan and plays Lizanne's music frequently.

Could you offer the duo a gig on Fri 3, Sat 4, Thu 9 or Fri 10 October?

The way the itinerary looks now, Oct 9 or 10 are probably the better dates.

The duo's fee should ideally(!) be in the range £400-£500 vs door split plus x2 B&B accoms and PA. As ever this is negotiable, of course, since we need the gigs.
It's a big journey to come over from Philapdelphia & LA to just sit idly around!

Lizanne's DropBox folder contains a lot promo materials -

YouTube channel - 7 videos

… many short and full length MP3's.

Hi Sal and Andy.

I’m the manager of piano-prog-pop band yourgardenday. Last year we organised a successful house concert and alternative venue tour and we’re looking to expand and do the same this summer.


You can hear links to our music at and, and find out more about us on Facebook (https:/ or at our own website (currently under construction)


Please note although we have some amplified gigs in our videos, we play largely unamplified (except the electric piano unless a real piano is available). We usually perform as a three piece but a two-piece set-up is also available.


Please let me know if you require anything else, if there is an application process I need to complete, or if you would like to see some testimonials from previous happy hosts.


Kind regards, Kaye, on behalf of Robin Coward

Hello, I am a USA/NC-based singer songwriter who just recorded my third record with G-award winning producer/drummer John Hampton in Memphis TN. It would be wonderful to come and play for you solo acoustic style this summer! With that in mind may I invite you to check me out at - happy to make bookings way in advance, anytime after July 11th works.

Peace & love,

Daniel Sage

Hi there, I am a UK-based singer songwriter who will be releasing his third album later this year. It would be great to come and play for you (either solo or with my small acoustic band) and with that in mind may I invite you to check me out at - happy to make bookings way in advance!!

Hi Sal and Andy,

I was wondering if I could get a moment if your time to listen to something?
It's the title track from Terry Emm's new album. I am booking shows for Terry in 2014 and thought he might suit the music events you put on.
Terry's music has recently had airplay from legendary DJ Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2. Bob described Terry's music as 'excellent, excellent music' and has had him in for a live session. BBC 6 Music DJs Gideon Coe, Chris Hawkins and Tom Robinson have also spun his tracks regularly alongside many regional stations. Terry has recently shared the stage with the likes of; Amy Wadge, Richard Walters, Danny & The Champs, Jackie Leven, Judith Owen, Red Dirt Skinners and many others.
MOJO magazine have described his music as 'pastoral, romantic and lit musically by summer rays…no routine singer- songwriter offering but some-thing totally engaging in melody and lyric' in a 4 star review.
It'd be interesting to see what you think to his music and great if you could consider him for a show.
Thanks very much,
Theo Hall

Hi Guys,

I'll be touring through the UK this October 9-23 and would love for you to review my profile in consideration for a booking!  Much obliged in advance!

Hi Sal n' Andy

I am looking for gigs for the very well known Scottish singer and songwriter Rab Noakes ( through the remainder of 2013 and right through 2014.
Rab has been described as one " of Scotland's great songsmiths" (Herald). That's really quite an observation when you think of the large number of great writers to have come out of Scotland over the past 40 years or so.
This is Rab's entry in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme for his solo show at this year's Acoustic Music Centre @ St Bride's ...
'You might have been forgiven for imagining that there was a portrait in Rab Noakes's attic, because the bloke who arrived on stage here was supposed to be in his sixties. Looking and sounding about half that age, he embarked on a thoroughly engaging journey through 40 years of songwriting. All told, this was a thoroughly enjoyable evening from one of Scotland's great songsmiths". (Stuart Morrison, Herald 2012). After his great success at AMC @ St Bride's in 2012 Rab makes a keenly anticipated return solo appearance to the Fringe. One night only - don't miss it!
For a video of Rab's showstopping performance of Bob Dylan's "Mississippi", see (from Gerry Rafferty tribute concert, Celtic Connections Festival 2012, which Rab curated). This video is just one amongst the many of Rab to be found on YouTube.
I look forward to hearing from you

Hi Sal n' Andy

I am looking for shows in very early September 2013 for USA/California-based acoustic finger-style guitar player Brian Gore (see, the 'guitar poet'.
We needs shows in early September ...
Sun  1 to Fri  6   available
Sat 7 and Sun 8 London Acoustic Guitar Show (Olympia) tbc
Brian will be in Germany doing some work with the great guitarist Lulo Reinhardt (grand-nephew of Django) in late August.  Brian is a fluent German speaker and can easily give a full concert or a workshop or masterclass entirely in German.  He could also do this in Spanish, although perhaps a little less fluently.
Brian has a good track record over here since he's also the brains behind the annual touring guitar festival called the International Guitar Night, which Stoneyport has worked for in the UK since 2007.  See  Brian got IGN going in the USA in 1995 and since 2000 it has become a major North American touring event.

You can hear some of Brian's work at

I hope to hear from you soon

Hi Sal n' Andy

I represent two US-based singer/songwriters for whom I am searching for gigs in the UK in September and October 2013.

First there is Lizanne Knott.  Here are a couple of comments about her ...
"Absolutely gorgeous music.  We've rarely had as big a reaction to any artist in recent years as the one we had for Lizanne Knott." (Bob Harris: BBC Radio 2)
"Lizanne Knott is one of an increasing number of singer-songwriters that deserve to be household names."
(Mik Gaffney - Properganda #6, Proper Records UK)

Lizanne's website is at

I toured Lizanne in the UK for the first time in September-October 2012 and she was very well received indeed.  
She has the unusual accolade of sellng at least one CD to every member of her audience at the Liverpool Philharmonic gig - I've
never heard of that happening before; most unusual.  BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris continues to be a big fan and plugs her recordings frquently.

Lizanne's tour dates are currently ...

Thu 26 Sep 13    Bury Met Arts
Fri 27 Sep 13    Liverpool
Sat 28 Sep 13    Dolgellau
Sun 29 to Tue 1   available
Tue 1 to Thu 3   available
Fri 4    Torphicen Bill Lothian
Sat 5    Cromarty, The Old Brewery
Sun 6    Kinross David Mundell
Mon 7   available    
Tue 8    Glasgow Star FC
Wed 9 to 16    available
Thu 17    Swindon AC

Lizanne will be travelling with her partner Glenn Barrett (guitar).  Would you be able to host a concert for Lizanne during this tour?

Please do tell me to send you a copy of her new CD, "Standing In The English Rain".

The second act is Jim Page from Seattle whose website is at

Jim has been writing songs for moons it seems - since the late 1960s, so he's been around a bit.

He released his first vinyl album of original music “A Shot Of The Usual,” in 1975, followed quickly by two more
before he arrived in the UK in 1977 to live and tour for the next six years.  Christy Moore popularised some of Jim's songs, most notably
"Hiroshina-Nagasaki Russian Roulette".  In 2007 Jim was included in an all star list of the “50 Most Influential Musicians In Seattle History.”
Back in the USA now for about 30 years he's had a hankering to tread the UK boards again and is touring here throughout October 2013.

Tue 1 to Fri 4  available    
Sat 5    Belper
Sun 6    London Walthamstow
Mon 7 to Thu 10  available    
Fri 11    Trowbridge (Wilts) Village Pump
Sat 12 and Sun 13  available    
Mon 14    Stirling FC
Tue 15 to Sun 20  available
Mon 21 to Sun 27   Irish dates

Would you be able to host a concert for Jim during this tour?

For more information on both these acts please do have a look in our DropBox at their promo packs ---
Lizanne's is at
Jim's is at (there are six audio tracks there.  I don't have CD's to mail out for Jim)

I look forward to hearing from you.
