Caravan, featuring original founding member and chief songwriter Pye Hastings (guitar, lead vocals,) and Geoffrey Richardson (Viola, Guitar, Flute) will perform a number of songs from their aforementioned critically acclaimed 4th album. The concerts will also include songs from In The Land Of Grey And Pink, plus other songs spanning their dazzling career.
Caravan are considered by many to be the undisputed, unsung heroes of the British Prog movement, and have often been quoted as one of the most formidable acts to emerge from the '60s progressive rock scene. Originally formed in Canterbury in 1968, Caravan were at the heart of the 1970s burgeoning Canterbury rock movement. They produced their own brand of “superior pop music, full of taste, craftsmanship and hard work” (New Musical Express) and packed venues worldwide.
The current 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).
