After consulting his preacher to make sure there was nothing sinful about playing blues records on the radio Mr. Wright decided to give it a try. He did it six days a week almost until his death on what became one of America's longest-running radio programs. From 6 o'clock to 9, he was the 'Soul Man' playing the blues. For the last two hours he was 'Brother Early' playing gospel music - Early Wright, obituary to the DJ, WROX Clarksdale

No problem with a workshop.

Will you supply all those attending (i.e. normal[?] right-handed players with mirrors??

I have to admit that is problem  ::)

However, on reflection (get it?) I didn't think it would matter too much since the rose tinted specs that we all use on these ocassions have a built in corrective factor, or possibly it's the alcohol.

So, Phil thank you very much for your kind offer and take no notice of the carping - just imagine if PP were to do a workshop you could go along there and ....  >:D

Sadly, I don't think I'll be able to make it over this year, Richard. Really had a great time last year and the setting was beautiful. When we checked into our seaview room Gre exclaimed, "Well you didn't tell me it would be like this." I think she spent several hours just staring out at Cobo Bay from our balcony.

Well, April is a ways off and who knows, plans could change.

All for now.

Waxy, well it was really great for both you to come over for the inagural gathering anyway and your duets with Prof Scratch that I managed to catch will be missed  :)

It gets light at 9am and dark at four o'clock here in Edinburgh at this time of year - so thoughts have turned to sunnier days and warmer climes. I've just escaped the tree decorating duties to book my flights and hotel. Feels better already. But just a thought, has anyone any ideas on workshop topics? All suggestions gratefully received. It could be a particular song. Or a particular style (like last year). I reckoned that if I asked now, then there'd be a few suggestions between now and April, and I'd be bound to be able to do at least something with one of them! Fingers crossed. Nothing too hard now!

I'll put what's left of my Xmas brain to it, I took the view I carried the dreaded tree in so "they" can decorate it!

Whilst we are on this topic let me give nudge to all those who threatened to come over and  get the flights and the Hotel booked...... also, unless we can talk Wax into appearing again we will have another workshop slot free.......... any takers, suggestions or anything else polite  ;D

Since I had to pop into the hotel over Xmas they gave me a nudge to push for some reservations  :-X

So what can I do except pass on the message on and hope to galvanise a few more you into booking for the great event - just think it will soon be the sunny season when you can eat fish and chips on the beach  :)

Details as ever from   http://www.weekendblues.org

If you book can you let me know ?

Flight's booked, hotel alerted, guitars packed, ready to go, just have to wait for Mrs.Blueshome to finish packing - that will take till April!  Can't wait!

Richard, can we have a check on who's booked in so that the guilty non-bookers can be named and shamed?

Hey Rich, you might want to change the title of this topic (edit the first post subject, also the red ink!) since the dates have changed. Snafu mitigation exercise, that sort of thing. Wish I could hang with you guys for a week, it would be a lot of fun. Great to see this taking off!
