I have fallen a little behind with things, the next couple of posts are a bit of a catch-up.
In October, I went off to see Rick Wakeman with my gig buddy Phil. The concert was in Lancaster Priory and was the first of what they hope will be several Prog at the Priory gigs.
Gordon Giltrap was the warm-up for the main show. I’d never seen him before, I loved his set and sense of humour.
The Wakeman section of the evening was a bit different to usual. Most of the regular favourites were there, including the Nursery Rhyme Concerto (I think this was only the second time I have heard it live), but due to the Priory Choir being part of the show we got a bit more 1984 stuff. The soloist also featured on Amazing Grace and The Meeting.
Lovely setting, fine show and Rick got his hands on the church organ for Jane Seymour, excellent stuff.
