Welcome to The Howff
howff /haʊf/. A favourite meeting place or haunt, especially a pub.
Welcome to The Howff, Bella’s lounge for the lockdown. We’ll be introducing some live events soon but at the moment we’re releasing a batch of stuff for you every night. Please share, feedback and contribute. Expect a complete jumble of genres, and we’ll just hope there’s something in here you’ll enjoy.
Tonight we have episode 8 of Groove On, Bella’s radio show for the virus time, brought to you by Stewart Bremner. This is an hour and a half of tunes brought to you every day. You can listen to the whole back catalogue here.
Our first featured artist is Iona Fyffe, with other music from Chemikal Underground’s Holy Mountain and an Optimo playlist of On U Sound. We have a new film from Angus Farquhar’s new arts charity Aproxima, poetry from Jim Monaghan and a Creative Tool kit to “share ways of being creative for those who find themselves in isolation” from Alec Finlay.
Let us know if you’re doing a show online that we can help with. If you want to punt your Patreon or Ko-Fi or your YouTube channel, get in touch and we’ll list it here. If you’re doing a live event we will help promote it or host it. We’ll also be doing virtual book launches, reviews and readings, interviews and other stuff.
Hope you’re well and coping. Please enjoy and share!
