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 Penny,
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.

Hello Penny and Dietmar,

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 The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany in late February/early March 2016.  I've very much enjoyed playing house concerts and intimate venues in Canada and would love to make those settings 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, Penny and Dietmar.  Looking forward to hearing from you.
Kindly,
Paul

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 Germany on April 17 or 18.

Here's a review 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 April 17 or 18 please do let me know. Looking forward to hearing from you. Many thanks!

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 www.tiamcgraff.com

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Dear Penny and Dietmar, Hi,

My name is Stefan van de Sande (NL). Next year 2014 I will tour across Europe. In April/May I will visit Scandinavia, Germany, in June I go south to Austria. I would love it to play at your Huehnerstall. I play acoustic music and it is al 'handmade'. I released 5 albums the last 6 years. Info about me on http://www.stefanvandesande.nl/

My girlfriend comes from Freiburg, so I speak a little bit german too.

I hope you want to write me back with some good news. 

Mostly it is for me not a problem to entertain or keep peoples attention 2 or 3 sets.

I switch songs with some little stories, in English und Deutsch. 

Live performances are always more inspiring than just hear my songs on a computer. When I come, I bring myself with me :-)

Best Regards, Liebe grusse, Stefan.

"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. http://www.earshotonline.com/charts/2012/folk_roots_blues.cfm

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

"This is the fifth album by a man who really should be a household name thanks to the excellence of his vocal and writing skills and his ability to create atmospheres and arrangements perfectly suited to his writing, something not all great singer songwriters are able to master"..AMERICANA ROOTS UK

"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

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: https://soundcloud.com/terryemm

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

Or perhaps watch recent videos: 

'Loved And Never Lost'- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsSSAWbSq7s

'Gently'- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8AKLx_LIpw

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 theohall@hallagency.co.uk

Thanks very much!

Theo
