Have a look at this video with clips from a recent house concert in Nice just last week:
As you probably know, I have only just arrived back in Spain, to spend some time with my little daughter. It is very pleasant indeed to spend some time relaxing with her, and digest my recent busking tour to Croatia and back. It was an enriching experience on so many levels! And it has also opened many new doors, and I have made many new contacts.
The upshot is that I will hit the road again very soon. First to the Basque Country to do some busking with Iban Nikolai on didgeridoo. Next I will be making my way to Rome again, where I have been invited for a one-off concert.
Like last time, I will be driving, and this time I want to see if I can do some more house concerts (also called showcases) along the way. This video is from a house concert in Nice, organised at very short notice by my good friend Susanne. It was wonderful to play a house concert again. And now I want to do more of them!
This video serves both as a memento of a wonderful evening and as a teaser for future hosts. Would you like to host a wonderful evening of intimate music for your friends, family and contacts?
I am now actively collecting the details of potential hosts, ALL OVER THE WORLD. My thinking is that if I have a couple of offers in a certain area, I can make it work by looking for others and combining it with busking.
I will go where the interest is, so don’t feel you might be too far for me. I feel it is just a matter of time before I come to your area.
For the very near future, I am particularly looking for hosts in the north of Spain, the south of France and the north of Italy and also Rome itself. I might make it to Slovenia and Croatia again too!
So…. what do you think of the video? Do you think it is tempting enough as a teaser? Does it make you feel like you want to organise a house concert in your home? If not, what can I do to make it more appealing?
Your feedback is always very much appreciated, and especially this time!
