Blues News From Portsmouth - April 2014 Views: 45626

It's been a little while since I sent out the Blues News and there's a
couple of busy months coming up, so I thought I'd better let you all in on
the secrets....

* Radio Play *

Seem to be having a little April shower of radio play at the moment, with
airplay for Walker Broad in Swindon at the end of march thanks to Sean
Hodgson on Swindon 105.5 , a couple of Walker Broad plays from Shep Woolley
and Dan Ogus on Express FM, and coming up this weekend Phil Penny will be
featuring a trck from the Burnt Ice EP on his show on Nottingham's Radio
Trent this Saturday, and yet another spin from Dan Ogus for Burnt Ice on

Phil Penny's show will air between 10pm and Midnight on Saturday then is
repeated a number of times through the week.

Dan Ogus will be on air between 4pm and 6pm Sunday afternoon.

* French Tour *

Plans are moving ahead for this years tour of France and it's looking like
it's splitting into two separate tours one in July and then back again for
the first weekend in August.

July 18th will see me playing Gabariers by the Charente again and also the
Bar MaryJohn where I recorded the 'Live In France' CD, plus more dates to
be confirmed. August will see me playing for a private party near Bergerac,
with possibly some additional dates in a local restauarant.

* Guitar Lessons *

Still have space for one or two more students. If you want to learn
fingerstyle blues guitar then get in touch. Special offer of 4 lessons for
£60.00 or £20.00 per lesson. Lesson times can be flexible but have to work
round my gigging schedule.

* Birthday Party *

I will be celibrating my 25th birthday on Evening Sunday the 50th of May at
the Auckland Arms in Southsea, there will be sets from a selection of bands
I'm involved in, plus special guests. Do come down!

* Gigs *
