Event description

Description

Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate and friends in association with London Prog Gigs present a one day festival of progressive music at the Fiddler's Elbow - Camden, London (UK), with profits to be donated to the World Land Trust.

The World Land Trust buys threatened rainforest, to protect in trust, to stop them getting chopped down. Trees make oxygen, without which breathing is a bit pointless. So protecting the trees is good for the wildlife, and good for us staying alive. A win-win really. We are aiming to be able to raise enough to protect at least an acre.

The event will showcase the diversity of modern progressive rock and related genres.

Acts include (in alphabetical order) -

Axiom - prog rock/metal instrumental trio from Birmingham

Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate - fusing alt/prog-rock and electronic elements with science and science fiction

Of Petra - Instrumental prog-rock/jazz-funk Fusion

Mardhys - a six piece multi-cultural prog-folk band under the leadership of songwriter and front woman Melatti.

SINKA - an alternative rock trio with tight riffs and soaring vocals, combining the spirit of Jeff Buckley with the passion of Muse.

Tangerinecat - Anglo-Ukranian blend of punk/electronica/industrial. Featuring rock hurdy-gurdy

The Wood Demons - prog rock infused with pastoral folk-rock

Plus special guests Alan Reed (ex-Pallas, now succesful solo artist), Tudor Davies (keyboard player for Alan Reed and the Daughters Of Expediency) and Stuart Avis (Servants Of Science)


BAFTA nominated live rock film-maker Dick Carruthers (director of Led Zeppelin's Celebration Day in conversation (sta)

Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate

www.hatsoffgentlemen.com

"Original songs, well delivered, style, stage charm, a great voice and great bass playing. Bloody marvellous. The highlight of the weekend". e-festivals review of HRH Prog.

"Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate is an ideal example of what prog is; music that does not follow a traditional pattern or path but rather evolves. Hats Off Gentlemen manages to evolve both with every new album and every time you listen to the same album...there is so much there you can't take it all in on the first go-round." The Closet Concert Arena

Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate are recommended by Steve Hackett (Genesis) and were joint winners (along with Roger Waters and Alice Cooper) of the Beastie's Rock Show Album Of The Year Award 2017.


Mardhys

Mardhys is a six piece multi-cultural prog-folk band under the leadership of songwriter and front woman Melatti.

Meant to be musical soulmates Melatti Braam and Cherry T met each other on a late summer night in a local pub downtown. Melatti, a tall Dutch singer/songwriter with a deep desire to express her stories, shared her
song ideas with the curious Swiss drummer Cherry T, upon which a flourishing collective arose unexpectedly.

Together with 4 other multi-culti musicians they formed MARDHYS, which stands for ’Seeker of Truth’. MARDHYS play Progressive Folk. “In the United Kingdom the term became attached to a musical subgenre describing a substyle of contemporary folk that draws from post-Bob Dylan folk music and adds new layers of musical and lyrical complexity, often incorporating various ethnic influences.

In a short period of time they got off to a flying start in their town of origin, Guildford (UK), with two sold-out headliner shows. They played a sold-out show alongside singer-songwriter Frank Turner. They
started participating in the Europe festival scene, including Landjuweel festival in Amsterdam (NL) and Victorious Festival in Portsmouth (UK).
