In 1986, Mister Keith, a drummer of some repute, was taken to a local thrift shop by Messrs Bentham and Blackshaw and gifted the present of an EKO acoustic guitar. A short while later after the writing of a number of his own original songs, Mister Keith performed a small house concert at the Victorian abode known as number 24 Rossall Road, Ansdell. The rest as they say, is history.

“Masterfully tender,
confidently elegant.
Beautiful textures propel a
powerful listening experience.”

Dr Davey Ray Moor

Mister Keith

Since then Mister Keith, albeit under a variety of monikas has performed house concerts (or Parlour Concerts) in houses, apartments, lofts, chalets and small bars around the world. From tower blocks in Eastern Europe to architect designed lofts in Switzerland to mud huts in Tsunami-hit India Mister Keith has taken his unique performance of life-affirming vintage songwriting to waiting audiences.

With the release of his brand new Long Player he has again reinvented the house concert to a new level. Captivating, witty and poignant at the same time, this kind of intimacy is hard to achieve. But the new album of songs gives Mister Keith a head start with what Dr Davey Ray Moor has called “Masterfully tender, confidently elegant. Beautiful textures propel a powerful listening experience.”

How do Parlour Concerts work?

Mister Keith is happy to perform to any number of people, whatever the size of the room. Intimacy is the key goal that allows the songs to shine. There is a preference for Parlour Concerts where Mister Keith is the sole artist, or with one support, but do not be afraid to contact with your ideas and wishes.
There are costs involved but generally the owner of the house can put on a successful concert at no cost to themselves at all.

“Fantastic entertaining and singing, thank you for a lovely evening.”

Wendy

“Was awesome! I had a great night. Loving the album, got it on repeat in my car!”

Jane

Parlour Concerts are for your nearest and dearest and those you wish to invite. It should not be too hard to fill your house with your closest friends. Generally they are not open public events – so you have no worry of anyone else turning up.
Each guest would pay a pre-arranged contribution towards the evening, which includes much more than just music. For more information, please get in touch. Say hello to Mister Keith.

“Until you’ve seen Mister Keith in action, you can’t really understand how he plays with the audience. It was masterful.”

Stefan

“Well we’re the lucky ones at Mister Keith’s album launch. Beautiful songs. Quintessentially British.”
