Artists & Schedule

Uriah Heep

One of the UK's most enduring and influential rock bands, at the forefront of heavy and progressive metal since 1969, headline our Saturday night.

For the full history, see www.uriah-heep.com

John Lees' Barclay James Harvest

John Lees and Stuart "Woolly" Wolstenholme were founder members of Barclay James Harvest, the melodic rock band with classical leanings which emerged from Oldham in the late sixties. Their relationship endured through nine studio albums and two live doubles, the period of BJH's history which most fans regard as their most creative and productive, and their musical collaborations included such classics as "Mocking Bird", "Galadriel", "Child Of The Universe" and "Hymn". John stayed with BJH after Woolly left in 1979, and it would be nearly twenty years before the guitar and keyboard legends would work together again.


LINDISFARNE emerged from Tyneside in the 1970s and quickly carved out a unique place for themselves as one of British rock’s most original bands. Their pioneering sound, combining acoustic instruments like mandolin and fiddle with their electric blues roots, proved the perfect medium to deliver the catchy, memorable songs provided by the band’s resident writers Alan Hull and Rod Clements. Their first hit, the Clements-penned Meet Me On The Corner, paved the way for their classic Fog On The Tyne to become the UK’s top-selling album of 1972.

Wishbone Ash

Martin Turner - founding original member, lead vocalist and key creative force of Wishbone Ash.

Wishbone Ash was formed by West Country musicians Martin Turner and Steve Upton, who arrived in London in 1969 to embark on their musical journey. Intent on creating a musical sound that was rich in texture and melody, Martin Turner envisaged the band’s innovative harmony-guitar hallmark and guitarists Ted Turner and Andy Powell were recruited via a now legendary Melody Maker advert. The partnership of the original line-up of Wishbone Ash forged a unique musical identity that would produce some of rock music's best loved works and influence numerous successful bands and result in millions of album sales and concert attendances. Wishbone Ash would become one of the most enduring and best loved British rock acts and its name synonymous with high quality guitar-driven melodic rock music.

soft machine

John Etheridge - Theo Travis - Roy Babbington - John Marshall

"Soft Machine Legacy” was launched in Turkey in Oct, 2004. The intriguing line-up of Elton Dean, Hugh Hopper, John Etheridge and John Marshall was a coalition of 4 long-time servers in different eras of the legendary group Soft Machine, but who had not played before as a unit. With the enthusiastic management of MoonJune in New York - the band quickly established a recording and touring schedule in Europe playing a repertoire of new originals and some vintage pieces. Highlights including appearances at the Umbria Jazz Festival and Leverkusen Jazz Festival (televised).


The brainchild of long time friends and writing duo Dave Cureton and Adam Gough, IOEarth came into being as a challenge they gave themselves to write an album of music that was truly unique. That album exploded onto the progressive rock scene in 2009 and was instantly branded one of the most important releases of the decade.


Formed in 2010 as an instrumental three piece, The Fierce And The Dead’s sound has constantly evolved since debuting with a 19 minute one track EP, ‘Part 1’, that combined epic post rock with electronica, krautrock and psychedelia. 2011’s debut album ‘If It Carries On Like This We Are Moving To Morecambe’ added hardcore punk, jazz and ambient influences into the mix. Over the course of these two releases the band began to gain a cult following and critical acclaim from the underground and mainstream music press.

jackie lyntonJackie Lynton has been famous more times than most of us have had hot dinners! He has played and recorded with a stellar list of true rock legends: Jimmy Page, Ritchie Blackmore, Screaming Lord Sutch, Big Jim Sullivan, Albert Lee, Rick Parfitt, Dick Taylor and most of Jethro Tull including guitarist Martin Barre and founder members Ian Anderson, Mick Abrahams and Clive Bunker.


'What a delight it is to welcome old friends Solstice back to the forefront of progressive music.’ - Prog Magazine

Soaring violin and guitar weaving around delicately passionate female vocals, underpinned by driving rhythmic complexity - Solstice were an unlikely band to succeed in 1980s Britain. Yet because of their unique vision, audiences in search of an alternative to the shiny 'product’ of the music industry reveled in the band’s performances at all the major festivals and sell-out tours, on which they made the legendary Marquee club their home.

edgar broughton bandEdgar Broughton singer songwriter and guitarist was a founder member of the Edgar Broughton Band in the 60s. The EBB would soon become the flag waving agit rockers of the late 60s/early 70s hippie movement. They were one of the first proponents of free concerts.

kindred spirit

The Kindred Spirit Band are really taking off in 2016, having been "discovered" by the wider Prog Rock world in April and being featured in the Classic Rock Society magazine. This has already lead to global album distribution and offers of some great gigs for 2017 already.

flying tigers

 Formed in 1982, playing Rhythm ‘n’ Blues; covers of Early Stones, Yardbirds, Dr. Feelgood, Chuck Berry and 9 Below Zero etc...

A four piece band with humour/ theatrics thrown in equals a great visual performance. Adam the harmonica player is a member of the Nashville Teens from the 60’s who are still going, a guest with the Jackie Lynton Band and has recently played with Geno Washington’s blues band and a local swing jive band The Hucksters. The Tigers have been gigging around this area for the last 10 years.
