Welcome to this months newsletter.

* Walker Broad Recording *

We've been making good progress on the new album. 6 Rhythm tracks
down with vocals and guitar of 4 of them, with another vocal and
guitar session at the beginning of June. It's all sounding pretty

Now making final preparations for this years visit to France, 6
great gigs booked in from 8th June through till the 21st. I will
be revisiting both the venues I played last year plus some
exciting new ones. Full details on my website. There a few dates
free still over the time there, so anyone with suggestions for a
last minute booking do get in touch.

I now have some high quality prints of my painting of Muddy Waters
and Lighnin' Hopkins for sale. Please get in touch if you might be
interested. Prints will be priced at £15.00 plus p&p and ready for
framing (sized just slightly smaller than A3).
