We are very pleased to announce for the first time Gryphon. Gryphon may not be one of the better known of the British Progressive bands, but they are surely one of the most unique and interesting. The five albums they produced between 1973 and 1977 show their evolution from an all-acoustic medieval music quartet to a Progressive pop band. Richard Harvey and Brian Gulland, both alumni of the Royal Academy of Music, built Gryphon around their interest in ancient classical and folk music. Harvey, a true virtuoso on the recorder, also played keyboards and other instruments, while Gulland played crumhorn and its modern cousin, the bassoon. The first line-up of Gryphon was completed with the addition of guitarist Graeme Taylor and percussionist/singer David Oberle."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Legendary British progressive rock band who are best known for their unusual medieval sound and interpretation.
The band was formed in 1973 by Richard Harvey (recorder, keys) and Brian Gulland (bassoon, krumhorn) after a stint at the Royal Acadamy of Music. They shared a vision of blending traditional English folk, Baroque instrumentation and Renaissance music in a modern format. The compositions resemble those of Gentle Giant but give greater emphasis to the authentic textures and sounds of the Renaissance period.
