Hi Kees,
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.
Full bios, photos, music and videos of Gathering Time are available at www.gathering-time.com, www.youtube.com/gatheringtimetrio and
www.soundcloud.com/gatheringtime; information on Mara (and her music) are available at www.maralevine.com.

Hi There Lovely

 

Hope you are well!

 

I am Elles Bailey and am in tour in Germany/Holland during this period. I have a couple of days left to book some shows and wondered if you would be interested? In particular I am looking for the 25th March this year or maybe the 27/28th March.

 

You can hear me Live here - https://youtu.be/WnrMXYroo0U taken from my live acoustic album 'The Elberton Sessions" and I will be travelling with a guitarist, drummer bassist and tour manager. 

 

I have just finished recording my debut album in Nashville and that will be released late Spring time. 

 

I mix blues/country and soul with a contemporary edge and have been tipped as country music magazines 'One to watch' in 2017

 

Looking forward to talking soon!

 

Thanks

Dear Kees,

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.

Hello Kees.

I am a singer/songwriter from Copenhagen, Denmark and I am planning an acoustic house concert tour in Germany and the Netherlands around March/April 2016. I just had an album out with my duo project Nothing of this is Real, and I am planning a release with my solo-project in 2016. So I wonder if you can help? I have played a lot of solo- and house concerts in Denmark and Sweden. 

Best Regards,

Jakob

Hello Kees!

I'm Joanna Weston, an English singer-songwriter originally from London and now living in The Netherlands. I would love the chance to travel across Europe and meet many new people and perform my songs in a cosy intimate setting.

I can perform my original contemporary folk style music either solo or with other band members. In 2014 I released my debut album ‘INSIDE OUT’ which is a collection of songs you’ll want to hear time and time again: https://joannaweston.bandcamp.com/album/inside-out ...and here is a link to 'Amy' taken from my EP 'Pieces of the Puzzle' which tells the story of life long friendship: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OInbbsv9CY  

I hope you enjoy listening and I look forward to hearing from you about all the possibilities.

Best wishes,

Joanna

At 15:13 on October 1, 2015, Low Country Hill said…

Hello Kees,

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:
 
 
Thanks for your time, Kees.  Looking forward to hearing from you.
Kindly,
Paul

Dear Live In Your Living Room,  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 was also recently in Gaffa.de with a lovely review for my album Dizzy Spells album, and I may have been on Alex Madsens P4 radio show too. 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  ivorgame@btinternet.com

Hi there! 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 in Holland on April 14, 15, 17 or 18.

Here's a review (in German Im afraid) of a show we played last week in Ritterhude: http://www.weser-kurier.de/region/osterholz_artikel,-Hippie-Momente-im-Auesaal-_arid,817095.html .

And here's some links to music, photos, bio, etc:

If there's any possibility of doing a concert on any of those days please do let me know. Looking forward to hearing from you. Many thanks!

Isaac
