Welcome to the last (probably :-)) newsletter for 2016. This month is a little quiet on public gigs though I am playing a couple of private parties, it's not too late to book me for yours, get in touch if you want a special house concert for new years eve! The last public gig I'm playing this month is a special one to commemorate the ten year anniversary of the death Jamie Roberts, John Robrt's son. It will take place at The RMA Tavern on Decemember 17th and will feature Bex Marshall (backed by Steve Brwoning bass and Dan Ogus Drums) my self playing a solo set, plus other special guests, Although reason behind it is sad, it's going to be a celebratory affair and should be a lot of fun. Entry is free but there wil be a collection for Cancer Research, please do come down, all are welcome. ** Video Blog ** I have started up an Acoustic Guitar orientated video blog, which will feature performances, background details of songs, the occasional lesson, and any other good ideas I can think of to put in there, maybe even the occasional rant :-) Here are the first three "episodes" in the playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMN18oPBYFAirhBQXXd0loZ04oqQnb-rC Funky Acoustic Slide Guitar Blues - Andy Broad Andy Broad - Guitar Lesson - Shuffle in E Andy Broad - Gypsy Jazz - Blues Style - Swing 42 Please check it out, subscribe to my channel to get regular updates, and share it with anyone you think may be interested... ** Guitar Lessons ** With Christmas coming round I'm doing my special deal again, your fist 5 lessons in fingerstyle blues and slide guitar for just £75 , normal price £20 per lesson, so you save £25.
