Had a lovely time last night playing Homesong in Evenwood, County Durham. Thanks so much to David and Davina for having us, and to the very nice folk who came along. I enjoyed the excellent heckling , as well as some great backing singing. Wonderful.

The Off Switch

Everyone has either seen, or taken part in, the “Hold Your Phone To The Heaven’s” display that happens at every Arena music concert these days. It seems, on the surface, that people don’t go to watch a gig now for the live experience. Just to film it and watch it later.

I was quite impressed the other day to watch a video of pop’s latest fetish, Billie Eilish, ask the audience at Reading Festival to put the phones away “Just for this song. Let’s have a moment”.

I actually think folk will have been grateful to her for the suggestion. Eternal Connection can be a curse. Because the technology that helps us in so many ways, is also highly addictive. And it’s not enjoyable to be an addict.

Truth is I’ve never seen a phone at a Homesong gig. (Not saying they don’t get whipped out occasionally, but I haven’t seen it). The thing is people are engaged with stuff. Firstly, with the other people at the gig. Then with the musician. And the songs.

Perhaps we all need a little help, an excuse if you like, to switch off the bright lights of the Next Text or the Facebook Fix.

Love David Fee

Very much looking forward to taking Homesong to England on Saturday. I'm playing at the home of Davidand Davina Tomlinson in the village of Evenwood in County Durham. If you happen to live in the area and would like to go along then give them a shout.

The songs are ready to go. I'm on my best behaviour! Can't wait!

Love
David Fee

Welcome

Hi, my name is David Fee. I am a singer-songwriter from Campbeltown, Kintyre, Scotland and I started HomeSong to encourage the growth of small music gigs and artistic events  in people’s homes.

A HomeSong Gig is a bit like indoor busking. It simply consists of an invited audience and a musician ,or other kinds of artist, performing their art in someone’s living room. Homesong brings people together for creative entertainment and friendship right on their doorstep. When you can see the eyes of the artist it causes the song, or whatever form of art it happens to be, to come alive. The audience gets a chance to donate to the artist who, as well as earning some money, is given the opportunity to showcase their creativity to an attentive audience.

Homesong is nothing if not local and, as I live in Kintyre, Argyll, that is the area where I am  personally trying to get these gigs going. But, wherever you call home, contact us if you’re interested in becoming a Homesonger (a Homesong host), a Homesinger (a Homesong performer), or simply in being a part of the fantastic Homesong Audiences that make a Homesong gig come alive. Please  use this site as a resource for setting up Homesong gigs anywhere. That’s what it’s for. Read the blog and look around this site. Join in!

Cheers for now

There are 3 kinds...

In order for a HomeSong gig to happen, three kinds of people are needed.

P.S.

There are many other people and groups working towards making music a community changing reality again, instead of the soulless industry it has too much become. I believe that all the best changes happen from the ground up. This is a grass roots project, and it can only live if people get involved and get their hands dirty.

Here’s to dirty hands!
