STRAWBSWEBNEWS – DECEMBER 2019

STRAWBSWEBNEWS - DECEMBER 2019

Hi all

Some fantastic news - Dave Cousins is doing some solo shows in the UK and also in South Africa, off the back of a trip over there. A truly great development, and hopefully there will be more to come in the UK.

Some Acoustic dates for later in the year, and an accolade for The Ferryman's Curse.

Have a happy holiday season and best wishes for a great New Year in 2020.

Dick

STRAWBSWEB - UPGRADES TO RELATED BAND PAGES
===========================================

Whilst I was out of action earlier in the year with eye problems. about the only useful thing I could do was to scan stuff from my collection. So I got to it and scanned loads of related band releases, ready to upload when I was able.

So I'm happy to upload new pages for releases by:

Dave Lambert
Lambert Cronk
Fire
King Earl Boogie Band
Cry No More
Roy Hill
John Ford
Jaymes Fenda & The Vulcanes

More to come.
