Welcome to the first newsletter for 2012, Happy New Year to you all and hope you had a great holiday over Christmas. 2012 is already shaping up to be a great year, with lots of things in the pipeline, including recording Walker Broad's first CD, a second tour of France and more as the year develops.
As we mentioned in a previous newsletter Walker Broad are currently busy doing test recordings of our material to fine tune arrangement ideas, before gong into the studio in a couple of months time. We posted a few photos of the latest session to our website, the link is in Sandy's latest blog, here is a short link direct to the blog article Quick Link
Plans for my second trip to France in June are well under way, with re-bookings from both of the public venues on my last tour. It'll be great to see any of you that live over there or might be visiting at the time, keep and eye on my giglist at giglist for more details as they emerge. If you can't make it over you can always catch a bit of the flavour of the last tour by buying the Live in France CD, available on-line from cd.html or at gigs.
Anyone with ideas for venues in France (or anywhere else for that matter :-)) please get in touch!
The third of the Acoustic Guitar Heaven Tour concerts takes place at the start of Feb.

There is a slightly changed lineup to last time, this concert will feature Mike Dawes, Tom Jannsen, Andy Broad & John Dignam. Tickets are only £10.00 and are available from
£10.00 is a pretty good deal for 4 quality acts so please come along and take advantage of us...
I added some new paintings to my art gallery on the site including a time-lapse video of a painting of The Cafe Dixieland in Verteuil sur Charente where I'll be playing on the 8th of June .
