STRAWBSWEBNEWS - MARCH 2005

Sent: Fri, 25 Mar 2005


STOP PRESS - ITALIAN ACOUSTIC STRAWBS DATES IN EARLY APRIL -
Some details available (see below) - APOLOGIES FOR SHORT NOTICE.

Two bits of big news for the Summer -
* some Dave Cousins/Conny Conrad gigs in Germany in early June, to launch
the new album Dave and Conny have been making together;
* at last some June concerts in the UK and Denmark for the "US line-up"
which toured the US in 2004 (Cousins, Lambert, Hawken, Cronk, Coombes) -
last seen on playing these shores in 1974.

Before that there's the May '05 US tour, as the Acoustic Strawbs spend most
of May trekking around on the West coast, with a few select dates on the
East coast to finish off. Including three double bills with Jacqui
McShee/John Renbourn duo, and two with Fairport Convention (don't find
yourself between the bands and the bar on those occasions - grin). There's
a visit to Denmark too in late April just before that.

And finally, another Joe Langer spectacular on April 17, this time
featuring John Ford and the Craig/Willoughby duo.

Keeps them busy I suppose .
