Blues News From Portsmouth April 2016

Welcome to April's Blues Newsletter.

** Walker Broad Band @ Hambledon Folk Club **

Walker Broad are delighted to be invited back to
Hambledon, to play at this excellent folk club on
Wednesday April 13th. We had a great time, when we played
for them a little over two years ago, an appreciatively
attentive listening audience, giving us the opportunity
to play some of our more subtle folkier numbers. The club
meets in the Youth club building in the Hambledon Village
Hall Car park, next to the Vine Pub on West Street
Hambledon. Despite it's quirky address the room is the
perfect size for an atmospheric setting, with candlelit
tables and space for about 40 or so.


** Various Reviews **

Since the last newsletter some excellent reviews have
been printed in the national blues press.

Blues Matters Magazine featured a review of "Every Penny
Of The Deal" in it's February / March edition number 88
released end of January.

Blues In Britain featured a review of my gig at
Homeheights House written by Bob Chaffey, which referred
back to his earlier review of the CD.
