Blues with Wine in France and Beer in Kent

Welcome to the August newsletter.

* France 2013 *

Off to France this evening for the 2013 solo blues tour.  Spent the day
making sure I haven't forgotten anything, particularly small but important
things like "bottlenecks" and god forbid my guitar! 

Looking forward to some fun this year as I revisit two venues from the last
tour and start the tour with a brand new venue, Pub Gabariers - Saint
Simeux, thanks to Ric for putting me in touch with that one!

I'm taking the laptop so I'll be blogging about my progress again, and I'll
have the camera so look out for the blog while I'm away and some videos
when I get back.

* Beer Festival Two Brewers Hadlow near Tonbridge *

The only down side of going to France this week is that I missed an
opportunity to play at the Gosport Real Ale and Music festival, being held
at Bay House School, Gomer Road, Gosport. Frustrating to turn down a
definite booking but being 8 hours drive away not much I could do, I'm
particularly pleased therefore to pick up a late booking for the Beer
Festival at the Two Brewers in Hadlow on the 24th August. 

If you find yourself near  the Charente in France or in Kent the following
week do  come along to a gig, details all on the giglist at:
