SHC Music Tribe is the brainchild of Gambrills, Maryland resident Susie Markland. SHC Music Tribe host live shows with some of the country's finest songwriters and performers. SHC Music Tribe is also representing award winning songwriter Marc Douglas Berardo
At the suggestion of songwriter David Glaser, SHC Music Tribe began with a House Concert series in Maryland. From humble beginnings, the concerts soon became immensely popular. From 2008 to 2017 Susie's House Concerts hosted over 100 shows with many acclaimed and nationally known songwriters; including, Kim Richey, Darden Smith, Ari Hest, Will Kimbrough, Cliff Eberhardt, Louise Mosrie, Eric Brace and Peter Cooper, Dan Navarro, Marc Douglas Berardo, Bob Sima, Amy Speace, Suzie Vinnick, Stray Byrds, Eric Taylor, Raina Rose, Rebecca Loebe, Joe Crookston, Anthony DaCosta and a host of others.
With the help of many friends and fellow music lovers a.k.a The Tribe, beginning in 2015 Markland expanded her concert series to include other houses and venues giving them different names while trying to leverage the support obtained as Susie's House Concerts. Susie and Soda in Mt Airy MD, Susie's Singer-Songwriter Series at The Woodshop in Gambrills, MD, The Old Town Bowie Concert Series in Bowie MD, and Susie's Songwriter Series at The Mansion on O in NW DC are just a few locations that provided the space for songwriters and performers to share their innate gift of song.
In addition to hosting concerts, Markland was a regular presence at music conferences and festivals including Folk Alliance International, The Americana Fest, the Kerrville Folk Festival, The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and South By Southwest in Austin, TX (SXSW). Markland has hosted a popular showcases since 2010 at The Northeast Folk Alliance.
In March of 2018, Markland organized, promoted and hosted an unofficial showcase at SXSW as SHC with an incredible line up of talent including: Walk Wilkins, Jimmy "Daddy" Davis, Nobody's Girl, Raina Rose, Marc Douglas Berardo, David Sher, Gregory Stovetop and Samuel Seth Bernard, Sam Morrow, Eliot Bronson, Curtis McMurtry, Bill Small, Rebecca Loebe and Jaimee Harris.
In October of 2018, Markland partnered with Mary Sack Management (Nashville, TN) to arrange an in-the-round event and the world famous Bluebird Cafe with four multi-talented songwriters, Dan Navarro, Kevin Gordon, Marc Douglas Berardo and Shannon McNally. The show was sold out.
Susie's House Concerts has evolved into is a traveling, rambling musical singer-songwriter showcase that can happen anywhere, anytime. The new name SHC Music Tribe represents a conglomeration of the names, the places, the artists and the patrons that have been a part of the evolution. See you in Musicland.
