I am new to the house concert scene and would love to perform a house concert in the Netherlands in the spring/summer 2018. I am a musician & and music therapist from Ireland and through my experiences of travel, education in both ethnomusicology and music therapy my music covers a lot of genres such as reggae, folk and Khoomi (Mongolian throat singing). My live shows incorporate techniques of mindfullness and self-inquiry which can develop a dialogue between myself and the audience related to the human condition, shamanism, music and healing and the relationship between music, self awareness and self- discovery.
Hi Horus! My name is Havilah and I'm a singer songwriter from Austin, TX who is performing at the Copenhagen Songwriters Festival. I'll also be touring the region with my good friend and talented musician Bruce Salmon. We have a few open dates and would love to offer a house concert and/or songwriting workshop in you area September 8, 9, 10 or 12. Here are links to our websites and such. My email is email@example.com. Hope to hear from you!
My name is Stuart Markus, and I am with an Americana/Roots harmony trio from New York called Gathering Time. Our latest CD, Keepsake, was #1 on Folk DJ-List (the international folk radio chart) in March 2016 with the #1 song and 5 other songs in the top 25, making us the #1 artist for the month also; we came in at #4 for the year.
Since 2012, we have often toured in partnership with an the roots/Americana singer Mara Levine. Her CD Jewels and Harmony was #1 for January 2013 and #3 for that year on the international Folk DJ chart. Typically, we do a set of our own songs as well as backing Mara on hers.
We have been booked together to play a music festival in Ehingen, Germany (near Stuttgart) on Saturday, April 14, 2018, and we're hoping to book a tour in Europe to run from around Saturday, April 7th to Sunday the 15th of next year.
The best way to describe Gathering Time is as a co-ed Crosby, Stills & Nash, with a bit of the Byrds and a jot of Joni Mitchell. Mara Levine is best known as an arranger and interpreter of American traditional songs and those by songwriters of the '60s like Tim Hardin, Leonard Cohen and Paul Simon, as well as contemporary ones.
It is worth noting that we are capable of doing either shows of mostly original songs (or in Mara’s case songs by modern songwriters) OR specialty tribute theme shows entirely of '60s American folk and folk-rock. (Information on those is listed at the 'specialty shows' page of our website. Whichever a venue prefers, we're happy to do.
My name is Hattie Briggs and I'm a UK pop/folk singer-songwriter (http://www.hattiebriggs.co.uk) and Radio 2 Young Folk Award Nominee 2014. I'll be heading to the Netherlands with my cellist/backing vocalist, Jasmine, for my third tour out there in March. I've released 2 albums and several EPs. Here's my second album to check out via soundcloud when you have a moment. I'm looking to play a house concert on the 21st or 22nd of March and would love to discuss possibilities with you. I play guitar, keys and ukulele and I'll have all the amps/sound equipment with me on tour. Here's a live video to give you the vibe https://youtu.be/p852leXrBz0. I look forward to hearing from you.
I'm Joanna Weston, an English singer-songwriter originally from London, now living in The Netherlands. I would love the chance to travel and meet many new people and perform my original contemporary folk style songs either solo or with other band members.
In 2014 I released my debut studio album ‘INSIDE OUT’ which is a collection of 'feel good' songs you’ll want to hear time and time again:
My name is Paul Hogeterp and I am a musician/songwriter from Hamilton, Canada. In November 2014, I released my debut solo record under the moniker Low Country Hill. The self-titled record was produced by Dave King at his lovely Barn Window Studio on the outskirts of Hamilton. I am pleased that Pat Sansone from Wilco and Bill Dillon (Joni Mitchell, Robbie Robertson, Peter Gabriel) lent their playing and artistry to the record. Recently, Low Country Hill received a 2015 Hamilton Music Awards nomination in the Roots/solo category and was a Hamilton regional finalist in CBC Searchlight 2015.
I've been playing solo shows (and occasional full band performances) in central Canada throughout 2015 and hope to tour in The Netherlands and Germany in late February/early March 2016. I've very much enjoyed playing house concerts in Canada and would love to make house concerts the primary focus of a tour in Europe.
Please check the links below to find out more about Low Country Hill:
Dear Ton, hello. My name is Ivor Game, a singer and songwriter from London. I play lots of acoustic shows across the UK and beyond, including The Netherlands, releasing albums and singles along the way. I have enjoyed nice radio play too, from BBC6 and other BBCs, to national across Australia, Japan, Europe and America. I have also been played a few times on The Netherlands AVRO, Radio 2 and Acoustic FM and have had nice reviews in New Folk Sounds Magazine. I love playing my little songs to cosy rooms, and have played many a small coffee bar, and intimate spaces before. You can hear lots of songs, and see a few videos like I Like Being at Home, on http://www.ivorgame.com and more songs on http://www.soundcloud.com/ivorgame. I hope you like the tunes and can consider me for a house concert. Thank you. Hope to hear from you. Kindest regards, Ivor. Ivor Game firstname.lastname@example.org

Hey, my three piece English folk band will be travelling around this summer and will be passing through Holland around the 22-24 June, if it be possible to do a concert on the 23rd/24th June, that'd be brilliant!
we've been playing music in various groups for the best part of 5 years. we try and vary our traditional folk-y sounds with world inspirations.
we have music uploaded and we shall be recording more in the near future
Hi Ton, Im doing a tour of Holland and Germany starting in just a week and unfortunately a few shows got cancelled recently (partly due to the German law that doesnt allow live music in public during Easter!) so Im reaching out to see if there's a possibility of doing a few concerts on April 14, 15, 17 or 18.
Hello Ton, 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 http://www.reverbnation.com/danielsage - happy to make bookings way in advance, anytime after July 11th works.
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.
