Blues News From Portsmouth - January 2015!

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

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.
