Black River Blues "Live At Blyth" CD Launch

On Sunday July 8th we’re launching our new CD “Live At Blyth” at The Flying Horse, Blyth – which is where we recorded the disk in April. We’re offering the CD for a special price of £5 on that night only (normal price £6) and for every CD we sell we’re giving Ian of The Flying Horse £1 to donate to the three charities that the pub supports. We’re trying to arrange a drinks promotion, but we’re not sure about that yet. If you’d like a copy of te CD but can’t get to the gig, send an email to: brblues at googlemail dot com – replacing the errors, of course. And if you’re around Blyth that night, why not come along?

Brown Bagging Guitarist

I wonder if he’s too embarassed to be seen playing in public? I remember when I was in March Hare in 1972/3, I was really shy and retiring – no, really, I was! I found a cheap pair of sunglasses and wore them on stage so that I could hide behind them. They became a bit of a trademark.

Durham Brass Festival – reminder

I‘ve posted this before, but the start of this festival is getting closer (Sunday 1st July). There is loads of stuff happening – I can’t put it all here so I’ll just recommend that you check out the website. Although I can’t get to many of the events, there are some daytime events that I think I can attend. There’s also a competition over at the brass festival myspace page, as well as some tracks to download.
