Copper AuditoriumSquare Chapel
John Hackett has been a much-loved figure in the progressive rock scene since the mid-70’s; best-known for his flute work with his brother, former Genesis guitarist, Steve Hackett on albums such as Voyage of The Acolyte and Please Don’t Touch. “Progressive” music in our sense of the word is based on varied, exciting song-writing coupled with fluid drumming, melodic, funky bass, outstanding guitar in the form of Nick Fletcher, and John himself – whose flute playing travels with such ease between classical and rock.
Spring 2024 will see the release of the band’s second album, accompanied by live dates at venues and festivals across the UK through the rest of the year.
Support from Storytime Band –
Joanne Harris is the internationally acclaimed author of CHOCOLAT (the award-winning novel and Hollywood film. Joanne and the Storytime Band have created #Storytime: a live show featuring tales from the book, plus image projections and music, as well as longer pieces based on her 2017 novella A POCKETFUL OF CROWS, and her new 2018 novella THE BLUE SALT ROAD.
This show (which premiered in 2016 in London’s King’s Place as part of the Tête-à-Tête festival) is intimate, engaging, quirky and darkly magical, appealing to audiences of all ages, but especially lovers of folklore, fantasy and fairytale.
