Blues News From Portsmouth April 2016

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.

** 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.

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.
