For many, the sound of Caravan is the Sound of Canterbury. From rehearsals in Graveney Village Hall and performances in London’s psychedelic clubs in 1968 to their recent 35-cd collection Who Do You Think We Are? the band has mixed folk, progressive rock, jazz and classical fusion with melody, virtuoso solos and lyrical storytelling.
Fronted by Pye Hastings since the beginning, Caravan’s latest line-up continues to draw audiences wanting to keep the unique music of Canterbury’s highest profile band alive and well. Find out what it’s all about this October.
Caravan are considered by many to be the undisputed, unsung heroes of the British Prog movement. Often quoted as being one of the most formidable acts to emerge from the '60s progressive rock scene, over the years they have managed to achieve cult status and have maintained a passionate and diehard following. Originally formed in Canterbury in 1968, Caravan were at the heart of the 1970s burgeoning Canterbury rock movement, and produced their own brand of "superior pop music, full of taste, craftsmanship and hard work" (NME) and packed venues worldwide. The current Caravan line-up includes Pye Hastings (1968 founding member: guitar, lead vocals), Geoffrey Richardson (joined 1972: viola, guitar, flute, vocals), Jan Schelhaas (keyboards), Jim Leverton (bass, vocals) and Mark Walker (drums, percussion).
