The band have enjoyed varying line ups through the years sometimes through tragedy but have kept the original spirit of the band still very much alive. Fronted by original bassist/vocalist Martin Ace the “new” Man band also features his son Josh on guitar and vocals and former member Malcolm Morley.

Featuring

Man (Wales)

Man (Wales) appearing at this event

Man are a rock band from South Wales whose style is a mixture of West Coast psychedelia, progressive rock, blues and country-rock. Formed in 1968 as a reincarnation of Welsh rock harmony group 'The Bystanders', Man are renowned for the extended jams in their live performances. The band reformed in 1983, with a line-up of Micky Jones and Deke Leonard on guitars, Martin Ace on bass and John 'Pugwash' Weathers (formerly of Gentle Giant) on drums. Prolific would be an understatement as Man have 409 releases on 71 labels, in 24 countries under their belt at the last count in Feb 2010. Man are one of the most hardworking progressive bands in Brittan having toured year in year out since the late 60s except for a short break between '78 and '83. The band are very popular in progressive circles having played many shows with the likes of Hawkwind, IQ and occasionally with Marillion.

Edgar Broughton

Edgar Broughton appearing at this event

Edgar Broughton was a founder member of the Edgar Broughton Band in the 1960s. He is well known as one of the most strident of protest singers, but at times one of the most accessible – with a surprisingly diverse repertoire of self-penned material, including some truly thoughtful and beautiful music of great originality. His solo performance is an emotive, entertaining tour de force containing both old favourites and new songs from the heart.
