Hi guys! The end of another year already! As some of you may know, it's been a difficult year for the band due to one of our members being very ill and we have appreciated all your support and good wishes during that time. Thankfully, we are all fighting fit now, ready to embrace the new year. We would like to thank you all for your continued support, we can't do this without you guys. THANK YOU! We very much hope to see you at our gigs in the new year and hopefully make some new fans. We wish a very happy and successful 2017 to you all.
Here we are again, at the beginning of summer, where we have lots of fabulous gigs lined up at various venues and festivals. To update you on the filming of Made In Metal, filming has resumed and we hope good things will come of it. Further updates will follow. Please come and continue to support us at one or several of our gigs, we love to meet you all and get your feedback.
It's been a fantastic year thanks to you guys. We would like to thank each and everyone of you and wish you all a fabulous 2016!!!! Hope to see you all very soon. XXXX
Many, many thanks to everyone who turned up at The Lamb & Flag for our filming session, greatly appreciated. Just to update you, our song, Steel Gypsy, and the film will be used on every episode of the forthcoming programme, Made In Metal, due to be shown on worldwide T.V. in 2016. We will update you on details nearer the time. A million thank yous to Neil and Paul at Made In Metal Motorcycles, Stafford, for the opportunity. You guys are total stars.
Very exciting news! We are being filmed playing live at The Lamb & Flag, Main Road, Little Haywood, Staffordshire on 25th August between 6 and 7pm. If you're free we would really appreciate your support so come on down and join us and maybe get yourself on TV!

Welcome to our new look website! Hope you guys like it. We have now added video with more to come soon. The site also now links directly to Stu Henri's website, stuhenri.com, by clicking the links, and Stu's website links to The Herbaceous Borders site in the same way. We have lots of new gigs coming up where we are looking forward to catching up with some of our merry band of followers and hopefully make a few more. A million thanks to all of you for your continued support and encouragement. We appreciate every single one of you.
The Herbaceous Borders would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a truly awesome New Year. We hope to see you at one of our forthcoming gigs.
It's been a fantastic summer and we would like to thank all of you who came to support us, we really do appreciate it and we love talking to you. Those of you who see us often will have noticed that Craig has now left us to pursue other projects and we have been gigging with guest bass players for the time being, including the exceptional Tom, whom we would like to thank. He has coped admirably at being thrown in at the deep end. STAR!
JOHNNY WINTER February 23rd 1944 - July 16th 2014
The Herbaceous Borders would like to express their heartfelt sadness and deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Johnny who was, and will always remain a blues legend. He was a major inspiration and influence on the guitar playing style of our own Stu Henri, who is deeply saddened by the news of the loss of his hero. The legend that is Johnny Winter will live on in the hearts and minds of all those around the world that love him and the life of blues will live on, far greater because of his talent and contribution. R.I.P.

A million 'thank you's' for your continued support, we couldn't do this without you and you make it all worthwhile.
