Christopher Williams
June 15, 2018

Claire and Paul were absolutely thrilled and honored to welcome Christopher Williams back to Lubbock for his first HubCityMusic.com house concert since 2014, June 15th, 2018.

Way back in 2011, the idea of a house concert series was just a gleam in Paul’s eye. We had our first, private, Harvest Moon concert in the fall of 2010, and Paul was thinking about hosting a public house concert series, but had not idea how to go about it.

Paul heard at the last minute that Christopher Williams was performing with Bebo Norman in Dallas, and, already being a fan of both, Paul jumped in the car and got there just as the concert started. Afterward Paul was getting Christopher to autograph a CD, and mentioned that we were interested in hosting a public house concert series. Christopher’s response was immediate, and Christopher Williams became our first official booking in this series of public house concerts we now call HubCityMusic.com House Concerts.

CW has been back occasionally over the years, and with that kind of history with him, we could not be happier that circumstances allow him to come our way again!

Touring nonstop nationwide at a pace of more than 110 shows a year, Christopher has built a faithful following of listeners around the country and is a true independent artist, having successfully published 11 CDs on his own label. He has toured all over the U.S., opening for and playing with noted performers such as Jars of Clay, Arlo Guthrie, Phil Keaggy, David Wilcox, Patty Larkin, Ellis Paul, and others.

Christopher is a songwriter, storyteller, and entertainer – offering songs that are honest and confessional, yet never overbearing; and performances that engage audiences with an appealing mix of intense passion and humor. With “lush guitar work, and sweet soaring vocals” (Boston Phoenix), CW is an accomplished guitarist. But he is also one of the few musicians who can fill a room with only his voice to the accompaniment of a masterfully energetic African djembe hand drum. It’s a sound that everyone should be privileged to experience. Simply stunning.

With his newly released CD, “Gather”, Christopher explores new musical and production horizons, while retaining the sensibilities that have endeared him to so many fans across the country. At once philosophical and poetic, these new songs also have a musicality that makes them immediately accessible and fresh at the same time.

His intimate live performances create a connection with the audience that is mesmerizing and entrancing. He is a performer that, regardless of the setting, creates an intimate feel – comfortable on stage in front of thousands, as well as in a small living room concert. There just aren’t many performers capable of this kind of connection, and if you’ve had the pleasure of attending one of his concerts, you’ll know exactly what I mean.

hONEyhoUSe
November 2, 2017

hONEyhoUSe is an amazing all-female band with a huge following! A little bit folk/rock, and a whole lot of passion and soul is the hallmark of their music.  Their message is peace, love, and joy, and seamlessly melds musical genres with their original creations embracing blues, soul, folk and Americana into one sweet hONEyhoUSe of music.

As mentioned, hONEyhoUSe has a huge following, so in an unusual arrangement, we teamed up with Melissa Grimes’ Rockin’ Box 33 and Uncle Bill’s Music Barn (Van & Leslie Shaw) to host hONEyhoUSe on two consecutive nights. Our concert was Thursday November 2nd at Uncle Bill’s Music Barn in order to accommodate as many people as possible in an indoor venue. This was followed by Melissa’s Rockin’ Box 33 concert on Friday November 3rd. This way both concerts were able to be hosted indoors during this cooler time of year, and giving people a choice of either night (or both) to attend.

Sure enough, both events were sold out to very appreciative audiences!  If you ever get the chance to see hONEyhoUSe perform live, be sure not to miss it!  One of the most entertaining bands ever!

Wendy Colonna
August 11, 2017

HubCityMusic.com house concerts was excited to again host Wendy Colonna in an intimate house concert on Friday August 11, 2017!  The weather was perfect for a backyard concert, as the entire yard was in the shade by the time the concert started.

Wendy opened strong with the song featured on her newest video release, “Girls Like Me”. (view video HERE)  The song selection was perfect for the entire concert, as Wendy played a great mix of her newest songs from “No Moment But Now” interspersed with a great selection of the strongest songs in her now-vast repertoire.  It was a perfect concert on a perfect evening, and a great reminder why we love this amazing singer/songwriter.

Wendy Colonna is enjoying the success of back-to-back critically acclaimed album releases, and as significant as that would be for anyone else, it’s just the tip of Wendy’s Good News iceberg!

Last summer she married the love of her life, Ryan Doty, and just a few weeks ago they welcomed their new son, Charlie into the world!  And between those two blessed dates, she created her newest, and most acclaimed album, “No Moment But Now”, all the while continuing to perform for enthusiastic audiences in multiple locations, including the 2017 Kerrville Folk Festival.  To say Wendy has been busy would be an understatement of the highest order, just as it would be to say she has been blessed on a personal and professional level.  She is beyond blessed!

“No Moment But Now”, has songs simultaneously featured on Apple Music’s “Hot Tracks” and “Breaking Singer Songwriter Playlist”, as well as Spotify’s “Fresh Folk” playlist.  Wendy is garnering critical acclaim from multiple outlets including the New York Times (describing her music as “ethereal”), and she was selected as a 2017 Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Finalist.  The Austin American-Statesman long ago recognized Wendy as “Austin’s Best Singer/Songwriter”, and that word is now out around the nation.

Expect more great news and great music from Wendy in the near future, but right now, enjoy her intimate and personal house concert while you can, because big things are on the way for this extraordinarily gifted songwriter and performer!
