=========================
ACOUSTIC STRAWBS US DATES
=========================

There's a photoshow been created to promote the US tour - check it out at:

http://www.photoshow.com/watch/Ny5pW3JM


==================================
ACOUSTIC STRAWBS - UK AUTUMN DATES
==================================

Alterations to the previously announced mini tour in the UK for the Acoustics between their trips to the US in September and Canada in October:

The show on 27 September at the Ferry in Glasgow has been rescheduled to 2013. And the Isle of Man show announced for 6 October was incorrect and isn't happening.

So the mini-tour is:

Sunday 30 September, Maddermarket Theatre Norwich
Thursday 4 October, Festival Tenterden
Friday 5 October, The Rock Maltby


=============================================================
ELECTRIC STRAWBS - BIG NEWS AND CORRECTIONS TO NOVEMBER DATES
=============================================================

I'm delighted to be able to reveal than the keyboard player for this year's UK electric tour will be none other than Adam Wakeman. Adam played on both 2000 and 2001 tours with the "Bursting plus Brian" line-up; it'll be a pleasure to see him back again (though we're sorry not to have John Young with the band, as he has other commitments).

A couple of errors crept into the last mailing: the last two gigs should have been:

Saturday 24 November, Soundhouse Otford
Sunday 25 November, St Andrews Hall Norwich


================================
ACOUSTIC STRAWBS - DECEMBER DATE
================================

And, news now in of a final opportunity to catch the Acoustic Strawbs in 2012:

Fri 14 Dec, West Cliff Theatre, Clacton
Tower Road, Clacton On Sea, CO15 1LE


===============================
CRAIG & WILLOUGHBY AUTUMN DATES
