Two new videos on YouTube

Those of you that have been to a show in the last couple of years will notice that we have several small video cameras working away. We take all the footage and compile it into memories. Every so often we get some thing that is worth sharing. This was the case at Farmer Phil's festival last year. A couple of complete songs from this festival in 2006 have been edited down and are available on YouTube.

For those of you that have not come across YouTube before, it is a site that specialises in "subscribers videos". kind of like Flickr or photobucket but for videos. Given the size of some of these video clips it is better viewed over a broadband connection, otherwise wait for the clip to almost completely load before pressing the play button.

There is currently a collection of Bluehorses videos on Youtube, from clips out of the live video to some tunes from Newt festival in 2005 and a number of behind the scenes clips. see here for the complete collection

First up "Hoedown" See this clip at full size here

Second "Blackleg Miner" See this clip at full size here

January Newsletter

The January Newsletter has been sent out to all those who have registered on the main band web page to be kept up-to-date. We aim to publish one a month on average. If there is braking, important news - like this years gig list - then we will publish as soon as it is known, alternatively when there is nothing to report then we will not bother you.

If you did not receive it, and would like to do so in the future, or if you previously signed up but nothing has arrived in your in-box, please enter your mail address in the box (like that to the left) on the main band web page. If your address is already registered the program will let you know, otherwise you will be emailed a confirmation request for the owner of the mail account to accept. Sorry this is an involved process but it helps to stop the spammers, and gives you a chance to change your mind and un-subscribe.

You could just keep on checking out the web page every so often, but we think this is more reliable!

An alternative (magazine layout) version is also available on the newsletter blog. Both this blog and the newsletter one are enabled for RSS (Really Simple Syndication) - for a detailed explaination then try here at the BBC but basically if you have IE7 or Firefox then just click the funny orange button on the toolbar, and follow the wizard. Even simpler we have put a button to the right of this page to Feedburner.
