Caravan

Caravan are considered by many to be the undisputed, unsung heroes of the British Prog movement. Often quoted as being one of the most formidable acts to emerge from the '60s progressive rock scene, over the years they have managed to achieve cult status and have maintained a passionate and diehard following.

Originally formed in Canterbury in 1968, Caravan were at the heart of the 1970s burgeoning Canterbury rock movement and central to the Canterbury sound. They produced their own brand of "superior pop music, full of taste, craftsmanship and hard work" (NME) and packed venues worldwide. The current Caravan line-up includes Pye Hastings (1968 founding member: guitar, lead vocals), Geoffrey Richardson (joined 1972: viola, guitar, flute, vocals), Jan Schelhaas (keyboards), Jim Leverton (bass, vocals) and Mark Walker (drums, percussion).

Now touring to celebrate their 50th anniversary and performing songs from across their extensive catalogue, this is a unique opporunity to see such a legendary band up close.

+ Long Strung Creatures, a rock band rooted very much in the classic rock and blues music of the seventies. Having met at school in the late sixties, they came together as a band only a few years ago. They write all their own music, befitting the genre of music that they have enjoyed for many years. In case you are wondering, the band name is taken from a Wilfred Owen poem, The Show.
