Blues News From Portsmouth January 2013

Welcome to 2013! It's seem the world didn't end and there's an 
exiting year to come ahead! Lot's to happen, including a tour of 
Germany with the Walker Broad Band, another tour of France, lot's

We've been doing quite well on the radio play front with the new 
Walker Broad CD, over Christmas sandy was interviewed by Shep 
Woolley on ExpressFM 93.7 and he played our track "Pointless", 
Ashywn Smith featured the song "Play Me Some Blues" on his first

There's more to come, Sandy was interviewed about her work with 
the Human Library by Terry Powell for ExpressFM and they also 
talked about Walker Broad, the interview will aired tomorrow

And yet more! Walker Broad are really excited to invited to appear 
on Martin Clarkes Blues show on Radio Wey this Friday. The show

recorded live :-)) and talking about our music.

**Sunday Lunchtime Blues Jam At The Auckland**

You never know what the first even of the year will be like, but 
this one was a cracker. we were full to cpacity with many 
variations of blues and some quite blues played. I think everyone 
got to play, but one or two player singers didn't get to sing as 
well as play. 

Too many people to thanks individualy but a great start to the 

Next one is Sunday 3rd February, get there early if you want to 
play. We try to fit everyone in but if it's as busy the first one, 
you'll need to be in 1:30 to be in with a chance (but it wopuld be 
better to get there at 12:00!) 

Auckland Arms, Netley Road, Southsea.
