The European House Concert  Hub

The place for concert hosts, guests and artists to network

If you haven’t hosted a House Concert yet, please make it a new year’s resolution!

Why not invite your favourite independent musician to play for your friends family and his fans in your front room, I’ll be surprised if he/she won’t show up sometime this year and play for you, let me know about it and if The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile is loose is near enough we’ll come and broadcast it too. If you would like to help keep the wheels on the Hub and on The Moose become a patron at

A bit about Josh Harty....

Touring across continents, Josh Harty's unique blend of American music has become a must-hear for those who keep the tradition of country, blues and folk close to their hearts. Born and raised on the plains of North Dakota, Josh has continued the old family tradition of playing guitar. His father, both a preacher, and the Police Chief of their small town, was also Harty's music mentor. From age 6, Josh and his father traveled the Midwest performing at senior centers, churches, small town festivals and the like. He released his first "album" at age 9 and another at age 11, with combined sales of over 8,000 cassettes.

“An honest voice and fingers that seem to catch fire!” -Atlanta Music Guide

“There is a dignity to this music making that leaves us feeling enriched for the experience. . . “ -No Depression

In the past decade Josh has put out three critically acclaimed solo albums and two duo albums ("12 August" with John Statz and "The Attic Session" with Blake Thomas), while touring continuously across Europe and North America, and shows no signs of slowing down. More than just moving along, he's spending plenty of time in the communities along the way, from Brooklyn to Haarlem, from London to Portland. Josh is always looking for that balance between the rolling road and the people who inspire him, trading stories around kitchen tables and theatre stages. Harty’s live shows prove that good story telling combined with journeyman musicianship is as American as music gets.

Hey Josh, best of luck with the tour- if you contact the Hunter Moon Festival the coordinators are Willie and Natalia and they have the old finger on the pulse when it comes to booking gigs - they old do some pretty cool house concerts which of course is always a possiblity!

Good Luck

Hi Josh, tell us where are you planning to start in Ireland?
I live in the north west in a small but vibrant county called Leitrim. That's close to Sligo and not far Donegal or Galway.
there's a cool festival in October you might be able to jump in on- its called Hunter Moon Festival in Carrick-on-Shannon, County Leitrim. The web page is
Are you travelling solo or with your band? Keep in touch there are lots to play and if you need to put your head I've a spare room . All the best. Always eileen

Hi Josh,

Thanks for the friendship. About venue in the UK, if you looking for gypsy jazz, the main place will be the Quecumbar in London

Otherwise, many pubs all around the country are worth a visit.

A band call The Groanboy Box will be touring when you will be here. so check them out they are really worth it.


Hope it helps

Keep Swingin'
