hi Ian,

Thanks for getting back.  Yes, i'm in Liverpool, I've made about half a dozen CBGs to date although I've used biscuit tins for the sound box.  I've recently started painting them as tributes to old blues stars.  I'll have some on show at the atelier gallery in Lark Lane soon and I'll be giving a demo on making and playing.  I'll post details when I have them.  I've been in touch with Herringbone John - he's playing at Vale Park in New Brighton on Saturday 30 June see you there maybe?

Sounds like you've got off to a flying start. Thanks for the compliment but I'm only an average player. Are you coming to the Boxfest at Brum? It's a brilliant day out.
