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 Ben,
It sure is an interesting development. I've only done house concerts in the States - they can be great fun.

Thanks Ben! I have been meaning to do a reccie of suitable venues in Gothenburg to see if I can tempt you in this direction. May look further a-field also to make it worth your while, but here in Gothenburg accommodation expenses would be one less thing to worry about! Will do some hunting and report back! Love to you both, Sophie
