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)

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, and; information on Mara (and her music) are available at

Hello Duyntje

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,

Hello Duyntje,

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.  Looking forward to hearing from you.

we have music uploaded and we shall be recording more in the near future

Thanks a lot hope to be hearing back soon.

Hi there!

Greetings from Canada! My new cd, Break These Chains has received a 4 star review in this month's Maverick Magazine and is being released to the UK/Europe through Proper Distribution.

We are securing dates for an acoustic tour in May/June and wondered if you would be interested in hosting us for a house concert?

Please visit my website at

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hi Duyntje,

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

"North Country Heart" Gordie's 5th album and latest offering made the Earshot Top 20 in 2012 in Canada on the Folk/Roots/Blues Charts.

He recently completed a world tour of 8 countries, performing 140 concerts in 4 months touring with Fred Eaglesmith, Mary Gauthier, Danny Michel, and Jonathon Byrd.

In the rough cut vein of Fred Eaglesmith or Kelly Joe Phelps, Tentrees is gifted" GLOBE & MAIL

"Tentrees has created a cohesive collection of images and sounds that hits emotional marks without resorting to manipulation. Heard without advance warning, one could be convinced that this is the new Corb Lund or Hayes Carll album and not be a bit disappointed"…FEVOUR COULEE

Hello, and greetings from far-off north central Texas. In 11 months - yes, 11 months - I will be making my second trip to The Netherlands. Arriving in Amsterdam on 16 May, I have a house concert in The Hague on the 17th. After that, during the week of the 26th-31st, I will be in the Groningen area (Groningen, Winschoten, Nieuweschans). As you can see, at the moment there is a bit of a gap in the schedule. If it is possible to work in a date during that gap, I would be most grateful. There is also a vast emptiness in the schedule after the week of the 26th-31st, so . . . My page here on the Euro House Concert & Acoustic Music Club Hub will tell you a bit more about me, there are also some videos and songs there. My two most recent CDs - "Apple (Songs for Dave)" and "Dreams Can Cost You Everything" may be heard for free and in their entirety at From time to time, a few other songs - demos, new tracks, things from the archives - are also posted there. Thank you for your time, Bill Parker

I am looking for dates, particularly in August-September this year for a critically acclaimed UK singer-songwriter I work with called, Terry Emm. 

Have a listen to some of his music here:

Legendary BBC Radio DJ Bob Harris describes Terry's music as 'Excellent, excellent music'.

Or perhaps watch recent videos: 

'Loved And Never Lost'-


At the moment we have 9th-15th scheduled in for dates in Germany for your information. 

If you are interested in having this fantastic rising songwriter at your house, contact me through my profile or on

Thanks very much!
