Blues News From Portsmouth - September 2013

Welcome to September!

posted the photographs from this years solo your of the Charente region of

Here's a link to the middle of the set with an excellent sequence of photos
taken by Le Gabariers residident photographer "Patrick Photo".

* Walker Broad at The Square & Compass *

The Square & Compass is a fantastic venue that I've been playing solo for
many years, (after an initial introduction by King Rollo IIRC), and walker
Broad played our first gig there as a band last Friday. The gig was very
well received, with an attentive listening audience.

You can read Sandy's blog about it here.

* Two Brewers Roots & Blues Club in Kent *

Just after getting back from France at the end of August I played at the Two
Brewers Beers festival, the gig was well received, dispite the slow start
due to the exceptionaly damp weather. I'm pleased to say that I've been
invited back to play at thier Thursday Roots and Blues night, run by Eddie
Armer. I played a few dates for Eddie when his club was at The Poacher so
I'm looking fiorward to that. The only shame is that it's not till December
