**Drift Bar Video Clip**

Here is a link to a short video of last weeks gig at Drift Bar, Palmeston
Road, Southsea.

It's a section of my version of Walking Blues originaly by Son House.

The gig at Drift takes place every Monday, and features myself with various
guests, this week I had John Roux join me on tenor dobro (an original
instrument that he had restored, looks and sounds great). Next week Tim
Nowells new outfit "The Roadrunners" will be coming down for to play a set.
Music starts at Nine then we bop till we drop (bar shuts at 1.00am)
