Lynne Butler - greetings and radio and recording news

Thanks to Lynne Butler, who sends her latest newsletter:

Hi folks,

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that you will have a equally fabulous New Year celebration and indeed, I hope 2013 will be good for you all.

I'm very pleased and excited to say that the BBC took a great deal of interest in my Christmas songs which was a pleasant surprise so it provides an exciting way forward for me next year; and Tom Robinson of BBC Radio 6 Introducing even posted a blog with a personal mention to me over 'A yodelling Christmas song' - it's an amusing comment but very complimentary. Here's the link if you feel like having a look - it's in the fourth paragraph within the blog if you scroll down a bit. The whole show is available for a free download for the next few days, and it is also available on Soundcloud too .

I am now working hard on recording the forthcoming album, which will be a mixture of genres as that is mainly what I do when I go out and gig; but these will be all originals written by me and songs I have chosen submitted to me by friends. A very exciting project for me. An album with a real mix of rock, rock 'n' roll, blues, country, etc....

I know Christmas is over but if you did want to purchase my Christmas songs or any others then they are available on iTunes and Amazon MP3.

On to the bluegrass scene now and the radio! As you can see these went out over Christmas and I've had some nice feedback about them too so hopefully it has done some good for the festivals. I will be resuming my radio shows from February 2013 but they will be aired only every fortnight instead of weekly. Just to keep things chugging along for now and to keep you all promoted as best as I can.
