Welcome to April's Blues Newsletter. ** Walker Broad Band @ Hambledon Folk Club ** Walker Broad are delighted to be invited back to Hambledon, to play at this excellent folk club on Wednesday April 13th. We had a great time, when we played for them a little over two years ago, an appreciatively attentive listening audience, giving us the opportunity to play some of our more subtle folkier numbers. The club meets in the Youth club building in the Hambledon Village Hall Car park, next to the Vine Pub on West Street Hambledon. Despite it's quirky address the room is the perfect size for an atmospheric setting, with candlelit tables and space for about 40 or so. http://www.hambledon-hants.com/Hambledon%20Folk%20Club.htm ** Various Reviews ** Since the last newsletter some excellent reviews have been printed in the national blues press. Blues Matters Magazine featured a review of "Every Penny Of The Deal" in it's February / March edition number 88 released end of January. http://www.broad.ology.org.uk/blues/main/review_epotd_bm.html Blues In Britain featured a review of my gig at Homeheights House written by Bob Chaffey, which referred back to his earlier review of the CD. http://www.broad.ology.org.uk/blues/main/acoustic.html#scrapbook http://www.broad.ology.org.uk/blues/main/review_epotd_bib.html ** Gigs ** Here's the upcoming gigs for April beginning of May Wednesday April 13th The Hambledon Folk Club Hambledon Village Hall - West Street - Hambledon Walker Broad Band Friday 15th April The Windsor Castle - St. Thomas's Road - Gosport Burnt Ice Sunday 17th April - From 2pm Montey's - 69 Castle Road Southsea Andy Broad - Solo Blues & jazz Thursday 21st April The Beehive - Swindon Walker Broad Band Tuesday 26th April Platform Tavern - Southampton Walker Broad - Special Guests at Bob Longs regular Blues Jam.
