Hi, 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.
 
We would love to hear back from you.

Hi There Lovely

Hope you are well!

I am Elles Bailey and am in tour in Germany/Holland march 2017. 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"

I have just finished recording my debut album in Nashville and that will be released 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 Marlous,

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.

Kind regards,

Hattie Briggs,

Hi Marlous.

I am a singer/songwriter from Copenhagen, 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 solo- and house concerts in Denmark and Sweden.

Here´s a Youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzXwc0R6EzM

At 14:47 on October 1, 2015, Low Country Hill said…

Hello Marlous,

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.
 
 
Low Country Hill...evoke(s) comparisons to such stalwarts as Hey Rosetta and Bon Iver, but yet really does not sound particularly like either. The tracks stand on their own as testaments to superlative songwriting and an album produced to showcase haunting, beautiful music. -Floorshime Zipper Boots

Truly a product of its environment, Low Country Hill is a provocative experimentation in sound and shape...it features sonic sculptures with a sense of experimentation but grounded with heart and soul, and evokes the subdued comforts of a warm abode amidst a cold, punishing but beautiful landscape. -Kent Heberling, Those Who Dig
 
 
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, Marlous.  Looking forward to hearing from you.
Kindly,
Paul
