Sent by Dick Greener: 4 Aug 2009


Hi everyone

A few snippets to keep you going for early August. More news coming
later in the month - release of single day tickets for Twickenham
40th anniversary weekend, details of who is playing when and a few
surprises ....

Sorry I won't be able to make it to the Acoustics gig at the Great
British Beer Festival tomorrow (5th August) - have one for me !

* Memories of Woodstock 8th August - cancelled

* 40th Anniversary - better than badges .....

============================================
MEMORIES OF WOODSTOCK 8TH AUGUST - CANCELLED
============================================

Unfortunately I have now had confirmation that the Strawbs, along
with a large number of other bands have pulled out of this festival,
which has now been completely cancelled.

The festival organisers have apparently undertaken to provide refunds
for tickets purchased - I'm sorry I don't have details of how to
obtain these refunds - you'll need to check with your ticket
agency/the box office etc. where you bought them.

=================================
ACOUSTIC STRAWBS DATES - AUG/SEPT
=================================

Wednesday 5 August 2009
Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court, London

Sunday 23 August 2009
Rhythm Festival, Clapham

Saturday 5 September 2009
Sedgefield Folk Festival, Sedgefield

Sunday 6 September 2009
Live Lounge at Baby Blue, Liverpool

===================================================
RELEASE DATE FOR DANCING TO THE DEVIL'S BEAT (CD) /
ACOUSTIC STRAWBS LIVE AT HAMPTON COURT (DVD)
===================================================

Release date for these two releases has now been confirmed as 24th August.

===========================================
40TH ANNIVERSARY - BETTER THAN BADGES .....
===========================================

Ever been at a conference looking for people you know from e-mail but
don't know what they look like ? Conference badges are helpful, but
if you're short-sighted like me you spend far too much time gazing at
peoples' chests for comfort (yours or theirs!).

So - a new feature on Strawbsweb for the 40th anniversary, so we can
all recognise each other in September. If you're coming to the
anniversary weekend, send a photograph of yourself with your name and
a short caption to dick.greener@o2.co.uk, and we'll post it on Strawbsweb.

And, even if you're not able to make it, send us a pic anyway and
we'll post it on the Absent Friends page, so you can be there in spirit ....
