"An awesome night..." [Newton Faulkner].
"A beacon of what music should be about."
"Keep being amazing..." [Rae Morris]
"This is the coolest event we've ever played " [Kan Wakan]
"Fantastic... a packed house and a second to none jam to the wee hours and you've got one of the best shows of a very long tour! [Dan Mangan Band].
"It's not every week you get the opportunity to see your favourite artist playing in someone's living room! Claire and I had an amazing night at House Concerts York during the week (and we were lucky enough to get a seat right at the front). Just an incredible experience."
Just a few miles outside of York, and now in our 9th year, over 300 artists have played in this tiny space - from solo performers to 6 piece full bands, from all parts of the world. They include Newton Faulkner, Rae Morris, Seafret, Skinny Living, Nick Harper, members of Snow Patrol & Razorlight, Kathryn Williams, Dan Mangan, Tom McRae, Jon Gomm, Dan Reed, The Woodentops, Jesca Hoop, Devon Sproule, Sean & Sara Watkins (Nickel Creek), Zoe Keating, to name just a few. Not a normal venue, more like a mix of the Radio One Live Lounge, and hearing every note as if you're sitting in the corner of the artist's recording studio.

Hattie Briggs & Ned Roberts
On 1st January 2017 Hattie was nominated Best Female Artist of 2016 by Fatea - alongside Kate Rusby and Kelly Oliver and her second album, "Young Runaway" was nominated Best Album of 2016 by Laurel Canyon Music.
NED ROBERTS is a hotly-tipped, London-based folk musician, who has drawn comparisons with the likes of Tim Hardin, Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen. With a timeless quality to his sound, a poetic turn of phrase, excellent musicianship and a perfectly judged vocal sensibility, his songs sit comfortably amongst the classics of the Laurel Canyon era. His eponymous debut (2014) brought him to the attention to the UK media, with plays on BBC 6 Music (Lauren Laverne, Gideon Coe) BBC Radio 2 (Huey Morgan, Jo Whiley) as well as BBC Radio Scotland. The album also received outstanding reviews in the national press, including rave reviews in Guardian and Uncut magazine.

As Son of Town Hall, Santa Fe’s David Berkeley and London’s Ben Parker present themselves as a duo born of the high seas, where they travelled together on a raft, crafting harmonies and writing songs about wonder and woe. Their sound is light and plucky, purposely timeless yet anachronistic, a sort of aural steampunk.
