I’m looking for hosts for the three remaining Sofa Salons this year including the one on June 24. I host many in my own home, but I enjoy the act of moving Salons from place to place, filling up different corners of the city with music.
Sofa Salon is designed to be a simple hosting experience. Guests arrive from 19:30, music is usually finished by 22:00 and the night is wrapped up by 23:00. If your room is big enough to fit 30-40 people sitting on chairs or on the floor, I can provide acoustic music, drinks and a wonderful relaxed atmosphere with the lovely salonnières that you know from coming to the shows. You’re welcome to invite your own family and friends. I’ll help set up and clean up.
Please email me back if you want to discuss becoming a Sofa Salon host.
Samstag 24. Juni – Sofa Salon #72: Tim McMillan (AU) + Jac Amidy (AU)
Berlin-based Australian Tim McMillan’s been on my radar for years. A phenomenal guitarist, he writes complex and beautiful modern folk songs that remind me of Midlake or Nick Drake and performs with violinist Rachel Snow. When I hosted and he played the Australian Embassy’s Australia Day event a few years ago, I got to watch him up close and offered him a Salon on the spot. Finally, the date has come along!

Jac Amidy is a mainstay of the Australian music scene, releasing albums since her big break as singer/bassplayer of legendary cabaret troupe, The Castanet Club. She’s a gifted singer, guitarist and songwriter. We’re in for a very personal, idiosyncratic treat.
Einlass 19:00. Eintritt 8€. Musik ab 20:15. Reservierungen per E-Mail. Please reply to this email or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your places. I already have reservations, so don’t wait!
