Two Great Walker Broad Gigs - Dorset this Weekend and Milton December 6th Views: 41235


Just thought I'd give you all a quick up date on two Walker Broad gigs

This Saturday November 22nd the full band will being appearing at The Square
and Compass, Worth Matravers, near Swannage in Dorset. Those of you who
have been there before will know what a great venue this is, aprt from the
quality live music schedule, they serve excellent ciders and real ales, and
don;t forget the pasties.

Here's their rather execellent listing for the gig:


The lineup for this one will be :

Sandy Walker: Piano / Vocals / Penny Whistle
Andy Broad: Acoutsic and Electric Guitars
Simon Tufnail: Fretless Bass.
Alan "Blackie" Blackmore: Cajon and other percussion.

Then on the first Saturday in December (6th) Walker Broad will appear in duo
format at the Barbones music club, a bit closer to home at the Milton
Village Hall, Milton park, Milton.

Here's the email organiser Dave Jordon sent to his email list:

-8<-------- It's just 3 weeks to the next acoustic music evening at Milton Village Hall. This time it's Blues Night. Saturday 6 December at 8pm, doors open at 7.30. (Yes, back to Saturday!) Barebones presents an evening of exquisite acoustic blues music, featuring: The Pete Harris Trio. Pete will be familiar to some of the older folkies among us as the talented guitarist behind the famed writer of folk operas Mick Ryan. He was always a blueser too, though, and that's where he's been concentrating his efforts more recently. Normally seen out as the Pete Harris Blues Band, a five piece electric set-up, Pete has agreed to play an acoustic set for us with vocalist Jeradine Hume and harmonica player Jon Vaughan. This is such a rare event, there is no video or sound clip of this line-up on the web. However, you can see and hear all three of them together in the electric band here (prepare to be impressed): The Walker Broad Duo are Andy Broad and Sandy Walker. They started playing as a duo in 2010, but are more often seen as a trio or even quartet these days. Sandy's background is in folk/jazz/blues. Andy is very well known locally as great blues guitarist and singer, but has also established a following in France where he tours most years. Andy is also involved in jazz ventures, so I guess anything could happen. Check them out here - there's a tab at the top that links to videos - There will also be some excellent surprise artistes performing short sets for your delectation and delight. I can hardly wait! The usual rules apply, such as they are: * There is no admission charge, no tickets and no bookings. * There's no PA - it's entirely acoustic - and not much in the way of lighting. Also, the furniture is a bit hard so you might want to bring a cushion. * We'll have a collection where the audience is invited to contribute what they think it's worth for a full evening of some of the best acoustic blues around. The money is shared out among the performers listed above and pays for the hire of the hall. * Bring your own booze or soft drinks and/or nibbles. The hall is not licensed for the sale of intoxicating liquor. * All this is why we call it Barebones! Looking forward to seeing you there, Milton Village Hall at 8pm on Saturday 6 December. Doors open at 7.30pm. -8<-------- Hope to see you at one or both of these! Andy
