PENDRAGON: gäbe es einen Pokal für besondere Verdienste im progressive Rock, die Band um Nick Barrett hätte diesen schon längst mehr als verdient. Nick Barrett hält mit Pendragon die Fahne des klassischen progressive Rock seit nunmehr über 40 Jahren hoch und das mit einer sensationellen Qualität an regelmäßigen Alben sowie Live Tourneen. Die treue Fan Gemeinde wird hocherfreut sein, nach den Feierlichkeiten zum 40 Geburtstag, erscheint im Herbst 2019 das neue Album: “Love over Fear” ein toller Titel und die Tour dazu wird es im März 2020 geben, mit einem Auftritt in Oberhausen, Clive Nolan (Arena) wird natürlich an Bord sein – wir hoffen auf Euch!

Davey Dodds // Support Pendragon:

Davey Dodds, described by Fantasy Forest Festival this year as ‘The master of Celtic rock’n’reel’ is a songwriter of some renown. Top performers frequently record his songs – the classic ‘Magpie’ appeared on the Unthanks recent album, Mount the Air, was used for The Detectorists on BBC2 and was performed at the Proms last year.

Davey has an interesting musical history. Once upon a time, he was the front man of the quintessentially English prog rock band Red Jasper, who topped the bill at The European Symphonic Rock Festival, at The Noorderligt in Holland in 1994. In those far off days, he also played as an acoustic support act for Fish in Holland. When the Dutch record label, SI Music went bust in 1994, Davey stopped playing music and moved to a different planet. For many years, he worked as a fly-fishing guide in remote, wilderness locations. Now that he’s been cajoled back onto the boards, he’s busy writing songs, grown from the roots and bones of his home in North Cornwall. A new solo album is almost complete and he’s playing main stage slots at big festivals.

His live shows fizz with energy. Incisive lyrics and startling musicianship will rattle your braincells and put blisters on your feet. Angel Air records released his recent solo album ‘Kernowcopia’ and the stunning follow up cd, ‘Toadstool Soup’, will be released early next year. Because he writes great songs and performs with real stage presence, top musicians regularly join him for live shows. Davey is convinced that playing music is making him younger. By this time next year, he fully expects to be in his early thirties!
