I am specifically looking to fill the following Dates:
May 28th Aug 24th and 26th
However, if you find my Profile interesting, yet the Dates don't suit you. I'm sure we can work something out.
Would be thrilled to hear from you.
KENT NIELSEN (DK) – Ukulele Folk Punk / Singer/Songwriter!
„Lyrics like a punch in the gut, painfully reminding you of your own wounds“. (Christian Elsrodt / Folker! Magazine)
Kent Nielsen is Danish but living in Lübeck (North Germany). He’s got a history as an author, percussionist, shoe shop clerk, record label guy, mail order honcho, night porter and ukulele player a. o. But there’s one thing he’s been doing for ages – and that’s singing. He just completed an old project – his first „solo album“. Roughly half of the roots rock colored Songs were written together with Stefan Kletetzka (DEEP RIVER), some are brand new while a couple Dates back to Kent and Stefan’s time in ONE BAR TOWN. Four covers were added, one by JOHN HARTFORD and another three originally written by GLEN CAMPBELL, EDDIE & THE HOT RODS and C.V. JØRGENSEN featuring Kent solo on the ukulele. Three more songs, drenched in Mod and 60s sounds, were written together with Helge Reich (JAM TODAY). The album also includes guest appearances from George Whitfield (FIDDLEBOX, ex-PRESSGANG) and Martin Wenk (CALEXICO, NADA SURF, JUDITH HOLOFERNES).
“I've always been fortunate to work with some extremely gifted songwriting partners. Hopefully we‘ve managed an album as diverse and varied as I prefer them.” (Kent Nielsen)
I See Hawks In L.A. are releasing two records in May: our own and an EP collaboration with the Good Intentions which turned out quite well. We plan on touring UK/Ireland this summer.
It's a bit of short notice (our agent Bob Butler of Grapevine has sadly passed away), but if you have a slot for us we'd love to play one of your concerts. Our tour window is July through mid-August, though we could head over earlier if that's when most of the shows are happening.
Rob Ellen will give us a hearty recommendation! We are southern California's leading alt country folk band. We've done 3 or 4 tours of UK/Ireland, have been in the Euro Americana chart top ten 3 times, and have Geraint of G Promo PR on board. He got us great press and BBC appearances last time and will be invaluable in promoting live shows. My email is below, can send you our bio and sneak preview of our forthcoming CDs.
Dear Barry, I will tour across the UK in May 2016. Would you like to organise with me a house concert?
You find me on http://stefanvandesande.nl
Rob Ellen from the Medicine Show is supporting my tour.
Best Wishes, and let me know if you might be interested?
I'm a UK based Americana musician. Normally I am to be found fronting my band the Open Secrets. Now I am looking for solo work in addition. To hear what I sound and look like the band's website is the best place to go: www.theopensecrets.co.uk You'll see I play guitar, banjo and harmonica. My material is singer songwriter with an old timey vibe. "Sounds like" wise Gillian Welch, Jason Isbell and Old Crow Medicine Show would all be in the ballpark. I look forward to hearing from you.
The duo will tour under the name "Hey Harley" (taken from one of Bill's songs) and will be billed as "Hey Harley (feat: Lizanne Knott and Bill Reveles)".
BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris is a major fan and plays Lizanne's music frequently.
Could you offer the duo a gig on Sat 25 October?
FEE The duo's fee should ideally(!) be in the range £400-£500 vs door split plus x2 B&B accoms and PA. As ever this is negotiable, of course, since we need the gigs. It's a big journey to come over from Philapdelphia & LA to just sit idly around!
Hope you are having a great day. I wanted to tell you about Tom Shed’s music tour coming to the UK this September. Curly Maple Music is sponsoring his “Mama’s Goin’ Out” tour so you can schedule this Grammy nominated performer, for free! Bring Tom Shed “history, humor and the human condition” to your venue now. Sample videos are available at www.tomshed.com . Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a concert at your venue.
Hi there, I am a USA/NC-based singer songwriter who just record my third record with G-award winning producer/drummer John Hampton in Memphis TN. It would be wonderful to come and play for you solo acoustic style this summer! With that in mind may I invite you to check me out at http://www.reverbnation.com/danielsage - happy to make bookings way in advance, anytime after July 11th works.
Hi there, I am a UK-based singer songwriter who will be releasing his third album later this year. It would be great to come and play for you (either solo or with my small acoustic band) and with that in mind may I invite you to check me out at www.stevewinch.co.uk - happy to make bookings way in advance!!
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.
Sat 7 and Sun 8 London Acoustic Guitar Show (Olympia) tbc
Brian will be in Germany doing some work with the great guitarist Lulo Reinhardt (grand-nephew of Django) in late August. Brian is a fluent German speaker and can easily give a full concert or a workshop or masterclass entirely in German. He could also do this in Spanish, although perhaps a little less fluently.
Brian has a good track record over here since he's also the brains behind the annual touring guitar festival called the International Guitar Night, which Stoneyport has worked for in the UK since 2007. See http://www.internationalguitarnight.com/. Brian got IGN going in the USA in 1995 and since 2000 it has become a major North American touring event.
I represent two US-based singer/songwriters for whom I am searching for gigs in the UK in September and October 2013.
First there is Lizanne Knott. Here are a couple of comments about her ... "Absolutely gorgeous music. We've rarely had as big a reaction to any artist in recent years as the one we had for Lizanne Knott." (Bob Harris: BBC Radio 2)
"Lizanne Knott is one of an increasing number of singer-songwriters that deserve to be household names." (Mik Gaffney - Properganda #6, Proper Records UK)
I toured Lizanne in the UK for the first time in September-October 2012 and she was very well received indeed. She has the unusual accolade of sellng at least one CD to every member of her audience at the Liverpool Philharmonic gig - I've never heard of that happening before; most unusual. BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris continues to be a big fan and plugs her recordings frquently.
Lizanne's tour dates are currently ...
SEPTEMBER 2013 Thu 26 Sep 13 Bury Met Arts Fri 27 Sep 13 Liverpool Sat 28 Sep 13 Dolgellau Sun 29 to Tue 1 available
OCTOBER 2013 Tue 1 to Thu 3 available Fri 4 Torphicen Bill Lothian Sat 5 Cromarty, The Old Brewery Sun 6 Kinross David Mundell Mon 7 available Tue 8 Glasgow Star FC Wed 9 to 16 available Thu 17 Swindon AC
Lizanne will be travelling with her partner Glenn Barrett (guitar). Would you be able to host a concert for Lizanne during this tour?
Please do tell me to send you a copy of her new CD, "Standing In The English Rain".
Jim has been writing songs for moons it seems - since the late 1960s, so he's been around a bit.
He released his first vinyl album of original music “A Shot Of The Usual,” in 1975, followed quickly by two more before he arrived in the UK in 1977 to live and tour for the next six years. Christy Moore popularised some of Jim's songs, most notably "Hiroshina-Nagasaki Russian Roulette". In 2007 Jim was included in an all star list of the “50 Most Influential Musicians In Seattle History.” Back in the USA now for about 30 years he's had a hankering to tread the UK boards again and is touring here throughout October 2013.
OCTOBER 2013 Tue 1 to Fri 4 available Sat 5 Belper Sun 6 London Walthamstow Mon 7 to Thu 10 available Fri 11 Trowbridge (Wilts) Village Pump Sat 12 and Sun 13 available Mon 14 Stirling FC Tue 15 to Sun 20 available Mon 21 to Sun 27 Irish dates

Hello Barry, My name is Ben Jordan, I am an independent musician from Denver, Colorado. I am currently booking tours, to support my recent full length release "Ghosts Breathing Through our Strings". I plan on being in Europe from the third week of may through the first week of July. I will be spending my first week in Ireland and beyond that I'm wide open, I'd love to come play for you.

Hope you’re having a great day. Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you a little about Roosevelt Bandwagon:
Roosevelt Bandwagon's personnel currently reside in London, UK. The band comprises a fluid line-up of extremely experienced musicians who have been writing, recording and touring internationally in various guises for many years. The ethos is to play the music that comes most naturally to its members with absolutely no consideration whatsoever for the trends, fashions and formulae of the commercial music industry.
Having played house concerts many times in the States in years gone by we love the idea of the House Concert Hub – it is certainly more focused than other social networking sites and far more friendly!!!
We’re currently doing sessions for a full length album which should be ready by May of this year. In the mean time, we have put out the ‘Train Roll On’ EP. We have a limited edition of free pressings which we’re mailing out to those people who request it – hurry and drop us a line before we run out! Tracks can also be heard on our home page/ visit us on myspace: www.myspace.com/rooseveltbandwagon where you can download the tracks for free.
Do please drop us a line – we’d love to hear your thoughts on our music/ have you as a friend.
