BIG BIG TRAIN and LIFESIGNS – SPEARHEADING THE NEW WAVE OF PROG

Prog bands take a long time to come to fruition. Big Big Train has been around for a while, slowly building a dedicated following with their exciting and inspirational music. Like Steve Hackett’s staggeringly good performance on 2 November and Camel in 2018, this band has an astonishing level of musicianship.

This date will also see the welcome return of Friars guitar legend Dave Gregory who previously played Friars with XTC. Dave guested on Big Big Train’s album ‘The Underfall Yard’ in 2009 and joined the band officially in 2011. The current band line-up is founder Greg Spawton (bass/keyboards), Nick D’Virgilio (drums), Rachel Hall (violin/vocals), David Longdon (vocals/flute/keyboards/guitar), Danny Manners (Keyboards/bass) and Rikard Sjoblom (keyboards/guitars). They performed their first gigs in 17 years in 2015 at King’s Place London which was awarded ‘Event of the Year’ by Prog magazine. Since then the band have been playing larger and larger venues. Their 2019 album ‘Grand Tour’ came flying in to the UK Top 40 and was voted ‘Album of The Year’ by Prog Magazine.

Please note that Lazuli, who were scheduled to appear on 16 July 2020, will no longer be appearing on this new date.
