Happy New Year and welcome to the first newletter of 2015! Hope you had agood break over Xmas. ** New Solo CD ** Work is progressing on the new solo CD to be titled "Every Penny Of The Deal" with 6 songs now recorded and two more sessions booked in. The album will be mostly if not all original material, and will feature mainly solo numbers, but also a few numbers featuring Sandy Walker on hammmond organ. I'm really likeing the combination of acoustic guitar and hammond! Also included will be a couple of bonus track recorded on tour in France last year. I'm still running the Name That Tune competition, the winner, who comes up with the best title for the slide guitar intrumenatal featured on the CD will win a free copy and get amention on the CD.
