Blues News From Portsmouth - August 2010 - Burnt Ice CD Launch


Hello Welcome to this months news letter!


**Burnt Ice CD Launch, The Barn, Milton Road, Weds August 11th**
 
The big news this month is that Burnt Ice have recorded a new six track EP
and we are having a CD release at The Barn @ The Milton Arms on Wednesday
11th August. In fact it's a combined release for the Burnt Ice EP and the
recent live CD "Blue Grafitti" from Andy Broad and Chris Shaw.
To that end Burnt Ice will be joined by guest saxophonist Chris Shaw for the
night. We will Glen Malo's tribute to Mississippi John Hurt, "Message From
Avalon" as support. 

The Barn now has a full PA system, proper stage and lighting and so makes an
excellent venue for us.

Admission is only 3.00 and tickets are available from The Milton Arms Front
bar, Saraband in Goldsmith avenue, or online from www.broad.ology.org.uk
(the buy button is just below the poster image) 

The  Burnt Ice EP features six tracks including a new original "Holding
These Feelings"  and a new cover of Albert Kings 'I'll Play the Blues For
You' as well as a few familiar friends from our set.

It will be great to see you there!
