Blues News From Portsmouth - September 2010

Wecome to this months new letter.

What a month we've just had and what month coming up!

Thanks to all those that came to the EP / CD launch on August 11th, we had
agreat time, some pics and a short video can be found on the newly updated
burnt ice page, more on that shortly.

Thanks also to all those that helped to make the blues day of The Southsea
Folk & Roots Festival one of the busiest ever, more pics and another video
from that!

The only downside to the month of August is that my long running resident
Monday at Drift bar has ended, so if you planning on coming down for a sit
in, I'm afriad it's too late (there always the Flo Jam though...)

Next months biggie is Burnt Ice's trip to Belgium. We've been asked to
appear at Festival Elouges de Blues in Belgium on Saturady September 18th.
Of course we said yes! So if you happen to be in Belgium on the 18th why
not come and check us out. More info on the festival myspace

* Site Updates *

I've just added a new gallery system to the blues site and added some recent
picture of Burnt Ice.

I'll let you know when I add more....

I've also renovated the Burnt Ice page, embeding a youtube playlist with
videos from  Southsea Folk & Roots Festival and the EP launch upadting the
band info a little and also embedding the images from the gallery system
into the page.
