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.
