I recently hosted my first house concert. It exceeded all my expectations.
Brett Robin Wood gave us an evening of original music that made us laugh, made us silent with emotion, made us think, and gave us some unforgettable lyrics. He created a mesmerising atmosphere, demonstrating his skills as a master musician and lyricist. His skill, heart, compassion, intelligence, wit and musicality all come together in creating a warm, uplifting and deeply human experience.
I would not hesitate to host an evening with him again. (next time I might even remember to take photos!)
Hi there Houseketeers!
The Beez (that cabaret band from Berlin) have already booked the Illawarra Folk Festival 2018 and will be appearing at the Tamworth Country Music Festival for a 7night run directly after that, but we´re still looking to book some fabulous house concerts through February, March and early April. Dates are flexible as we wait for a yea or nay from several folk festivals, but we´ll post new tour infos on our website as they come to hand.
You can find lots of stuff about us on our profile here on this illustrious website, and, if that´s not enough, you can also go to www.thebeez.de where you´ll find a bewildering collection of videos, songs, photos,newspaper articles…
Look forward to hearing from anyone in NSW or Victoria who appreciates the eccentric…
Cheers from Berlin!
I held my first House Concert last weekend with guest artist Duncan Townsend. Wow! Duncan was amazing. Just himself, an acoustic guitar, a wonderful voice, foot stomping boots, melting originals and sing-along covers. Myself and my guests had a great time. Totally recommend him and the House Concert idea. Get on-board folks …
peace, love & music
Myself (Heather Innes) and Pauline Vallance are two Scottish singers on tour in Australia September 22 – October 15, 2017. We arrive in Sydney on September 21st and, allowing for jet lag, we are looking for bookings in NSW September 22nd – 27th and 29th. September 30th and October 2nd and 3rd we’re hoping to fill in our Queensland tour. October 5 – 11th we’re available for concerts in either Queensland or NSW and we could squeeze in a concert in NSW on October 15 before we fly home on October 16.
I’m promoting my newly released CD “Here Comes The Day” on this tour and Pauline and I would love to perform the songs for you plus some of Pauline’s own songs and the occasional traditional Scottish song and a few tunes. I sing and play bodhran and Pauline sings and plays the clasarch (Celtic harp) and the flute.
I grew up in Australia many moons ago and I’m looking forward to returning. Pauline hasn’t been to Australia before and is looking forward to the adventure. I’ve sung in house concerts before, mainly in the USA, and I’ve told her they are the best way to meet new folk. It is short notice I know but if you have a free date that works with ours please get in touch by visiting our artist profile on here or at firstname.lastname@example.org
