Blues News From Portsmouth - September 2016 Views: 27525


Welcome to September's Blues News Letter.

September is going to be great month blues wise,
off to an excellent start at the Auckland Arms on
Sunday, a good mix of band solo and duo gigs follow
with some festival appearances thrown in too!

***Blues On the Quay***

Poole is holding it's first Blues On The Quay
festival this month (16th / 17th )and I'm delighted
to be appearing three times, once in solo mode and
twice as a duo with Sandy Walker joining me on
piano and vocals. In contrast to our normal Walker
Broad duo where Sandy takes the bulk of the vocals,
we will sharing the microphone and concentrating on
a more solidly blues based set, featuring some
original numbers from my recent CDs, a couple of
Walker Broad originals and a few standards,
rehearsals have been a lot of fun and we are really
looking forward to the festival.
