Blues News From Portsmouth - September 2017 - Poole Blues, Burnt Ice at 30 and more

**Welcome to September's Newsletter**

A really busy and exciting month coming up! Appearances at 
Poole Blues Festival, Burnt Ice's 30th Anniversary, and a 
solo gig at Keighley Blues club in Yorkshire and more 

**Poole Blues On The Quay**

The first weekend in September is quite a busy one with 
two concerts at Blues on the Quay In Poole and the regular 
Sunday Jam sandwiched in between in Southsea. Andy Broad 
will be appearing at the Rope & Anchor Sarum Street, Poole 
on the Saturday 2nd at 8:30 and then at The Foundry, Poole 
at 7:30pm on the Sunday, given just me enough time to host 
the Auckland Jam in between!

**Burnt Ice 30th Anniversary**

Hopefully by now you will know that Burnt Ice have been 
playing the blues for 30 continuous years, unlike some 
longer running bands on the circuit, there has been no 
time off for good behaviour! We've been celebrating that 
with a tour that started in France in July at the Bastille 
Blues Festival, and finishes up at the Bullfrog Blues 
Club, Southsea on Thursday September 7th, which we are 
planning to record, so come along and help us make a big 

Here's a quote from Dave Allen on the Pompey Pop Facebook 

" When I was just a lad, and first saw the great blues 
veterans like 'old' Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Little
Walter etc. they had mostly been going since the 1940s - 
in other words, shorter careers then, than Burnt Ice now - 
the Blues Legends of '17. Congratulations chaps! " 

Thanks Dave!

Tickets for the concert at The Bullfrog can be bought 
online from or 
bought in person from Street Level Music in Albert Road 

**Keighley Blues Club**

All happening this month, Andy Broad will be heading up to 
Yorkshire on 15th to perform at Keighley Blues Club as the 
opening act for the Moody Maas Band, should be great 

**Videos from France**
