Blues News From Portsmouth - July 2017 - France and 30 years of Burnt Ice

Welcome To July's Newletter,

Also a warm welcome to some of the new members on the
mailing list, if you joined up recently it's been a while
since I posted so don't worry you didn't miss anything!
Things have been bit busy and I've been relying on
Facebook to much for PR!

BTW our facebook links are


Some good stuff coming up over the next couple of months
particularly in the run up to the 30 years of Bunrt Ice
celebration in September.

Bastille Blues Festival - Brittany.

As it's Burnt Ice's 30th anniversary this year I decided
that this years tour of France would be with the band,
and given the overlap in lineup it seemed sensible for
Walker Broad to go too!

So on Friday 14th we head for Brittany to play at the
Bastille Blues Festival, Planco�t, hosted by our Friends
at Le Cheval Blanc, a great little Irish Bar / Hotel in
Planco�t between St. malo and Rennes. Walker Broad will
play the Friday evening, Burnt Ice on the Saturday and
then there will be Jam session on the Sunday afternoon.

Please do pass this info on to anyone you know in that
area of France, and of course come along yourself, just a
couple of hours on the ferry :-)

Burnt Ice - 30th Anniversary

As mentioned above Burnt Ice have been playing our quirky
brand of funky blues for 30 years, and we will be
celebrating with a number of special gigs culminating in
the gig at the Bullfrog Blues Club on September 7th.
Tickets for that are available to buy on-line now from
the Barking Spider website, and will soon be available
direct from band members.
