Blues News From Portsmouth - April 2011

Welcome to this months newsletter.

First off, news about the new Walker Broad website.

I've been hard at work over the last two weeks constructing the new website
for Walker Broad. It went live on thursday and after a couple of tweaks is
ready for the general public.

There's two ways to get to it


As you'll see it features some excellent photography by G.E.Whiting, taken
at Waverly Abbey near Farnham earlier in the year.

The site has been designed so that you can browse through the pages, gallery
and blog without interupting the music, which you can play using the player
on the left hand side of the webscreen.

Walker Broad feature Sandy Walker on piano / vocals and Andy Broad on
guitars. The music is an infectious blend of folk, jazz and blues.


P.S. If you'd like to link to it, feel free! Let us know and we'll set up a
reciprical link from the links page. If you do link please use the variation ...
