Blue News From Portsmouth September 2011 - French Tours - Walker Broad Videos and more

Welcome to this months newsletter.

A very busy month coming up!

* Blues Kitchen @ Le Cafe Parisien *

Thanks to everyone who came to Le Cafe Parisien on
September 2nd, despite there being a number of competing
events in town that evening, we had a full house, we
might just a have fitted in an extra table for two, but

They are planning more of these so I'll let you know more
when I'm back there!

* French Tour 2011 *

I'm off on my tour off France next week, leaving on
Wednesday night and driving down to the south of France
during Thursday, I've then got three dates to play on the
Friday, Saturday and Sunday, gradually working my way up
the country till I return home on Monday. The Saturday
night is a private party but I'll be playing public dates
on Friday 16th at 'Bar Mary John', Lamalous-les-Bains and
Sunday 18th at Dixieland Cafe Verteuil-sur-Charente. I'm
planning on taking the minidisc recorder and looking to
come back with enough material for a Live In France CD.

couple of videos posted taken during the gig. With a
couple more in the pipeline. (Probably not till I get
back from France though)
