FEB/MAR 2014 UK ACOUSTIC GIGS WITH
CURVED AIR/MARTIN TURNER'S WISHBONE ASH
=======================================

The Acoustics will be touring again with two other classic bands -
Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash and Curved Air, featuring vocalist Sonja
Kristina. Sonja sang with the Strawbs after Sandy Denny left, and
rejoined the Acoustics on stage in 2009 at the 40th anniversary
weekend to sing some of the Sandy Denny songs. Let's hope there's an
opportunity to hear those again on this tour.
