STRAWBSWEBNEWS - SEPT 2011 PART 3

Sent by Dick Greener, 29 Sep 2011


Hi all

A quick round up to close out September. There are some reviews and setlists from the US/Canada tour currently underway, but we need more please.

I'm going to be otherwise engaged for a couple of weeks in the early part of October, so please send your reviews and comments to the following address:

strawbsweb@gmail.com

Alison will be looking after the website in my absence.

Thanks

Dick
