Blue News From Portsmouth - July 2011

* Welcome To This Months Newsletter *

After a quieter start to the month things start to get busy this weekend
onwards, so i thought I'd better let you know what's going on.

* France in September *

I'm off to France in September to play at a wedding on 17th in the vicinity
of Bergerac, and am looking for additional venues to play at whilst I'm
over there. I've allready added one to my list the Cafe Dixielan in
Vertuil, but if anyone has suggestions of additional venues to try in that
area (or on the way there, I'll be travelling via Caen) I'd be very
greatful if you could get back to me!

* Radio Session with Walker Broad *

Walker Broad have been invited to play alive session on
on Friday 29th July. I did a solo session for the DJ Stever Sheppard some
years ago on a different station, so we are looking forward to meeting up
again talking about our music and ofcourse playing a few songs for you. I'm
not sure if there a listen again option so please do tune in. We'll be live
at about 10:30pm

Here's the link to the station

And don't forget to check out Sandy's regular blog on the progress of the
Walker Broad project on

* And Finally *

Those of you who've browsed through my gallery will have seen that I dabble
in digital painting in my sparse spare time. Some are better than others I
have to admit but I just completed a portrait of Muddy Waters that I am
particularly pleased with so I thought since it was blues related I'd post
a link here for you to look at...

Hope to see you at a gig soon
