Blues News From Portsmouth - September 2014 - CD Competition Views: 42051

Welcome to September

Another busy month coming up, with a batch of Walker Broad and solo gigs and
work started on the new solo CD "Every Penny Of The Deal"

*** New CD Started and a Competition ***

At the weekend I started work on the long awaited new studio CD, with a
recording of a punchy / pacey slide guitar instrumental, played on my 1939
Kalamazoo KG-14. I'm planning on including a range of tracks on the CD some
strictly solo, some with special guests and the best couple of recording
from this years tour of France as bonus tracks.

Now here's the competition bit, being an instrumental I don't have a an
obvious title for it from the lyrics, so I thought I'd throw it open to the
expertise of the members of my wider mailing list. Just before the weekend
Sandy (singer from Walker Broad) videod me playing a prototype of the tune
as I cleaned up the Kalamazoo in preparation for the recording, she
included it on her blog here: , so pop over and have
a listen then send in your suggestions for titles by email.

The prize will be an mp3 of the pre-mastered version of the track, plus a
copy the CD when finished and a thank you mention on the CD cover.

Let see what you can come up with!

*** Southsea Folk & Roots Weekend ***

Southsea Folk & Roots returns this month on the weekend of the 27th and 28th
of September, I'm sure JR will be sending out a details email soon but I'd
just though I'd mention I (Andy Broad) will be opening for Aynsley Lister
Band on the Sunday evening and Walker Broad will be appearing on the
Saturday afternoon. Tickets are
available from

*** James Needs A Heart Fundraiser Event ***

After a fantastic first gig at the Greyhound in Broughton over the weekend,
Burnt Ice are honoured to have been asked to provide the entertainment at
this fund rausing event for Great Ormand Street Hospital .
