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)

Hi Square Wheels House Concerts

Hope your good. 

Im working with a band called A Different Thread who are looking to book in a house concert tour. They would love to play your house concerts if possible!

Their stuff is below and it would be great to see what we can do together. 

A Different Thread - Released on 15th April
 
 
Bio: ‘A Different Thread’ consists of travelling singer and songwriter Robert Jackson, and versatile classical cellist Isaac Collier. With a distinctive voice, bluesy harmonica and rhythmic guitar picking,  Jackson’s songs cleverly weave together adventure, bitter romance and synchronicity with “thought provoking, well crafted lyrics” (Gordon Giltrap). Collier’s enchanting and often improvised playing gives this folk duo a refreshing and impulsive edge.
 

Let me know your thoughts on the music. 

Thanks


Chris

Hello ,

We are Lostboy an Acoustic Folk duo who are from the north but now reside in sunny London. Having been friends for 13 years we only recently formed in 2016, we try to mix close harmony with Folk tunes they strive to write honest original songs.

We are currently looking for House Concerts in the UK from August through to October 2017 but we are not rigid with these months.

We have been gigging throughout London and have just secured our first festival, We believe this summer is going to be great and we would absolutely love to perform for some House Concert crowds.

Here are all our social links for you guys to look at.

Hello Steve and Clancy, I'm an Alaskan artist who'll be in the UK this August. Will you consider my music for your house concert audience? Brit artist Jen Armstrong, who is also super fabulous, will be supporting me, so you'll get both of us :)

Thanks!

Hi,

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

Bonnie Bishop Looking for Gigs 2-15 August

Her soulful compositions and raspy voice outlive her personal reinvention as she finds driving rock rhythms in her guitar and on her piano ­ the latest addition to her cadre of talent. Bonnie wrote the new material with a simple notion in mind: You have to love yourself before you can fully love and be loved by anyone else.


Bonnie frequently writes with some of the most lauded songwriters in Nashville including Mike Reid, Al Anderson (NRBQ), Lee Roy Parnell, Pat McLaughlin and Seth Walker. “Not ‘Cause I Wanted To,” a song she co-wrote with Anderson, was recently recorded by her musical hero Bonnie Raitt for Raitt's "Slipstream" album released this past April -- a dream come true for Bishop.

Hi,

Hope you’re having a great day. Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you a little about Roosevelt Bandwagon:

Roosevelt Bandwagon's personnel currently reside in London, UK. The band comprises a fluid line-up of extremely experienced musicians who have been writing, recording and touring internationally in various guises for many years. The ethos is to play the music that comes most naturally to its members with absolutely no consideration whatsoever for the trends, fashions and formulae of the commercial music industry.

Having played house concerts many times in the States in years gone by we love the idea of the House Concert Hub – it is certainly more focused than other social networking sites and far more friendly!!!

We’re currently doing sessions for a full length album which should be ready by May of this year. In the mean time, we have put out the ‘Train Roll On’ EP. We have a limited edition of free pressings which we’re mailing out to those people who request it – hurry and drop us a line before we run out! Tracks can also be heard on our home page/ visit us on myspace: www.myspace.com/rooseveltbandwagon where you can download the tracks for free.

Do please drop us a line – we’d love to hear your thoughts on our music/ have you as a friend.

Best wishes & have a great weekend.

Roosevelt Bandwagon

How do? I thought I might just stop by and introduce myself. Please send me a friend request if you feel it a good idea to stay in touch. From both an artistic stand point as well as being like minded in our endeavors it would seem that we might. Best regards for the Holidays and Merry Christmas
