One of the most recognisable & influential voices in progressive rock, as the lead vocalist and creative force behind the band Yes, Jon Anderson was central to that band’s phenomenal success. Jon’s solo show includes classic tales from his days with the supergroup and his ensuing solo career as well as the timeless songs from all across the Yes songbook & his own eclectic solo work.

Jon was the author and a major creative influence behind the series of epics produced by the legendary supergroup Yes including such complex pieces as "Close to the Edge", "Awaken", and especially "The Gates of Delirium.”

Additionally, Jon co-authored the group's biggest hits, including "I've Seen All Good People," Roundabout," and "Owner Of A Lonely Heart." Noted for singing in his original Lancastrian accent, this is a chance to see this truly unique musician perform solo, up close and personal.

Yes, Jon still is the voice...Anderson’s voice remains exquisite, never more so than on Find My Way Home, Won¬drous Stories and the sublime Soon excerpt from The Gates Of Delirium.” - EXPRESS & STAR

Irish born Anderson, started off fronting Mabel Greer's Toyshop, before forming Yes, however his musical career has never been creatively limited. Be it working on four celebrated albums with Oscar winner Vangelis, or playing with the likes of Toto, Glass Hammer, Dream Theater, Kitaro, King Crimson, Mike Oldfield, Peter Machajdik, Gowan, Rick Wakeman's concept album '1984' and Bela Fleck and the Flecktones or producing 13 highly acclaimed solo albums.

Jon has always found different avenues for creativity, be it composing and playing with dozens of orchestras throughout the world, composing ballet scores or contributing to countless film scores and painting.

A masterful musician, a weaver of stories both verbal and musical, this intimate evening with Jon Anderson will linger long in the memory.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
