Hove House Concerts logo
There we were, sitting in Hove, lovers of music but too lazy to go out. So we thought 'why not use our newly-knocked-through front room to create an intimate space for musicians to perform?'. They can play their songs, sell their CDs and make a few quid - while we can bask in their reflected glory like the fame-whores we are. Mmmm...

So, we promise you:

  • an up-close-and-personal experience (it's big enough, but not that big)
  • some great singer-songwriter-instrumentalists
  • you'll get to see every slide and every hammer-on
  • and every penny of your donation will go to the performer

Coming Soon...

About the Show

In her extraordinary show No Petticoats Here, award winning singer, songwriter and musician Louise Jordan tells the stories of inspirational women who challenged expectations. From the woman who dressed as a soldier on the Western Front to the women football players banned by the FA, the ambulance drivers running the gauntlet of enemy fire in Flanders and the so-called ‘surplus million’ single women. Inspirational women, working in a time of conflict, leaving a legacy.
“Inspired by the stories of the many remarkable women who served in the Great War, Jordan has produced one of the most touching and powerful folk albums of the year so far. Sounding at times like the late, great Sandy Denny, Jordan is also a remarkably inventive piano player, a skill that comes to the fore on the stridently haunting Perhaps and beautifully structured Ripple And Flow. “With courage to kick out convention, you were laughing in a lion’s den”, she sings on Endless Days: the bold spirit of these heroines captured in a single line.”
