Subject: FitB - More lovely musical dates for your diary
There's lots more great live music coming up in the next few weeks/months. I've also included web links so you can check out the music and performers for yourselves. Please let me know what you think of the programme/artists and if they appeal to you. Please also forward this email to anyone you know that you think could be interested in hearing/seeing the best of the UK's acoustic/folk/roots performers in wonderful settings. It saddens me to think that so many missed out on the opportunity of experiencing an evening like we had recently with Steve Knightley and Jenna, I don't mean those that couldn't make it, but those many many more people out there who are still unaware of this amazing music and the richness it can bring to peoples lives.

Full Diary listings below. Thanks to Dave W for suggesting this brilliant idea. Easy to print out, tear off and stick on the fridge door!
Dave I should add, has a gig of his own to promote and I'm very happy and proud to oblige as his group 'Homage' - if not actually 'born' at FiBers - was at the very least - 'unleashed' and 'honed' at our monthly FiBers nights, end of last year and beginning of this. You may remember me mention Dave, Bob and 'Imaginary' Steve.
You can see them playing at the Yew Tree in Barfreston on Thursday 14th June. Dave blames that Steve Knightley for triggering his creative juices at the ISC songwriting workshop last Spring, so yeah thanks Steve! Look what youve done! ;o)
