Win tickets to see Josh Phillips of Procol Harum join Starlite Campbell Band at The Met, Bury
Josh Phillips of Procol Harum (yes, that Procol Harum) will be joining European Blues awards nominees the Starlite Campbell Band for their special home-coming gig at The Met in Bury on November 15, 2019.
Phillips began his career aged 16 playing organ on the soundtrack to Quadrophenia and was later the keyboardist for British heavy rockers Diamond Head. He has written for and/or performed with a wide range of musicians, including Big Country, Leo Sayer, Pete Townshend, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Kenney Jones, Ronan Keating, Alisha’s Attic, Midge Ure, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney and, most recently, Mike Rutherford, Judie Tzuke, Jeff Beck and Rod Stewart with Ron Wood.
European blues awards nominees the Starlite Campbell Band is husband and wife Suzy Starlite and Simon Campbell working as a four piece with some of the world’s finest musicians. The band is steeped in British blues – think early Led Zeppelin, The Faces and Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac. With contemporary original songs inspired by real life and real people, they have a sound and vibe reminiscent of the mid 60s to early 70s – the halcyon days of music.
The Starlite Campbell Band will be playing songs from the new record The Language of Curiosity which is currently being recorded at their pop-up studio near Hannover in Germany. The album is set for release in early 2020 on the Supertone Records label.

@Amy_Fleur_Stone @LaingArtGallery @BBCFOUR Oh, there is so much here. On the surface a poem by Keats but actually Keats was referring/stealing verse much, much older. And then the painter and his muse - she died during the painting. So all the classic themes of Isabella were mirrored in the painter's tragedy.
