International House Concert Day Feb 3 "The Festival" (invite)

February 3 2018 is the 1st International House Concert Day, we are celebrating by organising the 1st International House Concert Festival over that weekend.

Its our 9th birthday on Jan 8 so were releasing The "Looking For America Collection" which features 14 member acts we are supporting to help them tour America & to help publicise IHCD. 

We have invited all members on the Hub to run house shows in support of The House Concert Movement, The Hub & The Merican Moose Mobile Appeal over the weekend of 2/3/4 February then we introduce them on to a face book feed ( "The Mooseathon" ) feed in turn live from their concerts, we have our House Show with Danny George Wilson (Danny Champ) Sunday 4 as a finale to the whole weekend Festival  (see below) 3 days after he finds out if hes won his second UK Americana Award, (Thank you Danny you are indeed a champ). We will attempt to keep the whole thing going across the rest of the globe for a full 24 hours. 

The Idea is we start "The Mooseathon " feed from a UK house concerts or session Saturday afternoon TBC jump in and out of as many as we can take take it to America (where its superbowl sunday the next day so it will be a good way to get the party going there it is hoped) and on to Australia and the far east, then back with us for the finale on The Wayward Ellen Boys "Riding Point" Radio Show 3pm Sunday and culminating with Danny Champ at The Dancing Dog Saloon here in Kent.

IHCD is designed to promote the concept of House Concerts in general and support The European House Concert Hub & is particularly in aid of The Merican Moose Mobile Appeal our fund raising campaign to buy a fully equipped mobile gig ready Stateside broadcast recording studio RV to enable our members to tour more easily in The USA.

If you feel you would like to get involved I can send more information, poster templates & include your event on the programme & face book feed. Basically all we ask is you organise a House Concert or musical gathering, you can do what you like with the funds that you raise but a donation to The Merican Moose Mobile Appeal would be appreciated, some are donating all the money (thanks) Your call!

My hope is this takes off & will help everyone with a good gig at the start of every year at a time its difficult to find any gigs.

PN me here or on Now!!
