The House Concert European Hub (& Acoustic Music Club Network)

'House concerts' are mentioned in the previous post on the European Bluegrass Blog. If you have not encountered this term before, or have no idea of how to organise a house concert (or get one organised for your band), check out the House Concert European Hub (& Acoustic Music Club Network).

'A house concert is a chance to experience music in a warm and intimate environment. This is a place for artists, guests, and hosts to network', says the homepage (or 'vestibule'). Learn all the details of how to organise a house concert - it need not even be in a house. If you're a touring musician or prospective impresario, join the network and get your own page. There's an associated network, Country Locals, which may be more adapted to the needs of some bluegrass bands.

Examples of musicians already using the House Concert European Hub are Viper Central, who played at the Willisau Bluegrass Festival (CH), and Hermann Lammers Meyer, recently featured in Bluegrass Buehne magazine.
