Hi Mel, are you still hosting concerts? I'm an Australian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist touring in Deutschland in late Aug to mid Sept. I have a few free dates and will be in the Hamburg area, if you're interested. Best wishes, Stuart Rose

Hi Mel,

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

Hi Mel.

I am a singer, songwriter from Denmark. I have played in rockbands and soloconcerts  for many years. I am on  a solo-tour in Germany in April and I am looking for a house concert the 8th of April or maybe the 10th as I play in Kiel the 7th and in Hamburg the 9th.

It´s inyimate songs and up tempo rock in the area of Cohen, Cave, The National and Bowie.

I have released and toured in Germany before with my bands.

My new songs (demos):

Songs with my band:

So it´s just me and an acoustic guitar. :-) Could you be interested?

Best regards

Hello Mel!

I'm Joanna Weston, an English singer-songwriter originally from London, now living in The Netherlands. I would love the chance to travel Europe in 2016 and meet many new people and perform my original contemporary folk style songs either solo or with other band members.

In 2014 I released my debut studio album ‘INSIDE OUT’ which is a collection of 'feel good' songs you’ll want to hear time and time again:

.. and here is a video link to 'Amy' taken from my earlier EP 'Pieces of the Puzzle', which tells the story of life long friendship: 

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

Best wishes,

Hi Mel!

I'm looking for a house concert to play in Hamburg for early 2016. I'm an Irish singer songwriter currently living in Berlin. I am using Berlin as a base to tour Germany. 

I can see by the influx of comments on this page that you must be very busy. If you have any space please have a listen to my music and check out my website. I'd love to play for your guests!

Kind Regards


At 16:08 on October 1, 2015, Low Country Hill said…

Hello Mel,

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 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, Mel.  Looking forward to hearing from you.

Dear Mel, 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 also recently enjoyed a lovely review for my album Dizzy Spells on Denmarks and I think I may have been played on Alex Madsens P4 radio show. 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 and more songs on 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

Hey there =)
I am coming to Germany in March and will be there for a few months to play in streets and houses. Do you want to host me in March, April or maybe even May?

At 16:10 on October 22, 2013, Theo Hall said…

Hi Mel,

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

We are headed back to Europe for our 5th tour and although we have lots of dates booked are looking to fill some holes doing our favourite thing- house concerts!!
We are looking for dates still in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, France, Spain and Italy.
The tour is taking place May 9-April. 15 2014, below is some more info!
Gordie Tentrees & Hill Country News
They are returning to Europe with a new record, and new band featuring 3 part harmonies, fiddle, dobro, harmonica, weaving swamp filled grooves with high energy foot stompers, and gritty story songs. Gordie Tentrees-porchboard bass, dobro, harmonica, guitars, vocals, Aiden Tentrees-double bass, harmony vocals, and Fabian Brook-fiddle, guitar, harmony vocals. Let us know if you are interested.

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.

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
