Tricky Pixie live at the Mill House

Yup – that’s right. Coming soon – the 22nd September, in fact – we have the one and only Tricky Pixie – that’s SJ Tucker, Betsy Tinney and Alexander James Adams – visiting the Mill House for a one-off concert on their way to the German filk convention, FilkCONtinental. As with Heather and Ben’s concert, we will be streaming it.

Tricky Pixie is an adventurous gypsy celtic folk rock trio, unleashed from the land of Fae. These wild and masterful performers are as much visual and interactive as instrumental, wielding vocal harmonies woven with guitar, violin, cello, mandolin, and several bodhran. They’ll take you down the twilight roads with a ride through Celtic rock, haunting and bluesy a cappella numbers, sweetly sung circus lullabies and roaring tribal folk songs. Find more at

The precise starting time is still under discussion, but should be somewhere around 7pm UK time/2pm US Eastern/11am US Pacific/8pm Germany. We’ll be doing this in a similar way to before – a hat will be passed with a suggested donation of £10/£5 (waged/unwaged), and folks watching the stream are welcome to make a donation via Paypal.


Watch this space for more.

The archive of the stream can be found at – apologies for the 40 seconds of blank screen at the start – hopefully I’m starting to get my head round the whole streaming process now.

The geeky bit…

Well, some of it, anyway.

For folks wondering how it’s all done, here’s the skinny. Continue reading

Heather Dale and Ben Deschamps

As those of you who were there or watching online will confirm, we had a fantastic concert with Heather and Ben on April 14th. We had about a dozen folks in the room, and if the stats are to be believed, upwards of 20 online, including the folks from MASSFILC watching at the start of one of their meetings.

Our standard approach is not to archive the stream on UStream as it goes out, but to record it locally and edit it to tidy it a little, before restreaming the result. So, hopefully, we’ll be restreaming this one in the next couple of weeks – watch this space!

Hello world!

Welcome to the main site for Live at the Mill House.

Our mission is to put on live streaming house concerts of filk and folk artists, so that fans who otherwise wouldn’t get a chance can be a part of the experience and see artists they otherwise wouldn’t get to see.
