Blues News From Portsmouth August 2005

Welcome to the Blues Newsletter for August.

Quite a busy night this month, so here's some hilights of what's 
to come.

Friday 12th August - The Crown Littlehampton - Burnt Ice

This venue is fast becoming one of Burnt Ice's favourite out of 
town gigs, but this week we have something a bit special. As Simon 
has taken a last minute holiday ( a weeks trip to turkey!) we have 
reformated the band in to an acoustic trio, for one night only. 
The line-up will compose Andy Broad on acoustic/ electric guitar 
Vocals, Matt Beckwith on harmonica, and Alan "Blackie" Blackmore 
on congas, djembes and other assorted percussion. It's going to be 
an interesting night so make sure you get there early! 

Friday 19th August, The Lamb Devizes. - Andy Broad

This is a first trip to this venue, and I am really looking 
forward to it. If your are in Wiltshire then please come along!

Thursday 25th August - Southsea Folk and Roots - Burnt Ice

The full electric line-up will be back together for this one, to 
open the first night of this years Southsea Folk and Roots 
festival. As ever the first night of the festival is being held in 
conjunction with the Bullfrog Blues Club and the main act for the 
evening, will be Lightnin' Willie and The Poorboys and excellent 
blues band from Texas USA. Be prepared for a full on evening of 
gritty electric blues...

Monday 29th August - Southsea Folk and Roots - Andy Broad

range of blues styles, from 5 or 6 different artists.
