About The Event

Lee Abraham Band

Lee Abraham is a musician, guitarist and producer from southern England. A music fan first, Lee took up guitar and songwriting in his mid teens and played in a number of bands playing both covers and original material throughout his formative years.

In 1999 Lee took up recording and song production and started to record his song ideas. With his writing featuring both a classic AOR and progressive rock sound, early releases found a small audience online and with the release of Pictures in the Hall in 2003 a small run of CDs were pressed and soon sold out.

2004 saw Lee write and record View from the Bridge, a progressive rock concept album which impressed Martin Orford (IQ, Jadis) and Karl Groom (Threshold) enough for them both to make guest appearances on the album. The album sold well throughout the world with virtually no airplay or promotion.

In 2005 Lee successfully auditioned the position of bass player for UK proggers Galahad. Many UK and overseas tours followed and Lee featured on their 2006 release Empires Never Last. A stunning gig in Katowice in Poland also in 2006 was released as a live DVD, Resonance. The band's legendary performance at the ROSfestival in Philadelphia in 2007 was released as the live album Sleepless in Phoenixville.

As Lee worked on a new solo album in 2009 he parted ways with Galahad to concentrate on songwriting and production. 2009 saw the release of the critically acclaimed album Black and White which featured many guests including John Mitchell (Lonely Robot, Arena, It Bites, Frost*), Jem Godfrey (Frost*), Simon Godfrey (Tinyfish, Shineback, Valdez) and Steve Thorne just to name a few. . Several gigs followed featuring the core band that Lee used to record the album Gerald Mulligan, Rob Arnold, Christopher Harrison and Alistair Begg).

In May 2017 Lee was invited to rejoin Galahad, this time as lead guitarist. Through late 2017 Lee recorded all the guitars to the Galahad album Seas of Change that was released in January 2018. All through 2018 and into early 2019 Galahad supported the album with live gigs in England, Scotland, Wales, Poland, Norway and the Netherlands.

2019 followed with Comatose, a progressive rock concept and single track album with a running time of 47 minutes. The album follows a storyline developed by Lee and takes the listener on a journey of both despair and hope. The album was critically acclaimed by many fans and media outlets alike.

And in 2020 and what a year it has was!  If there were any good to come of this pandemic, Lee was determined to write and record a new album and he did just that! Written and recorded in just under 9 weeks, Harmony/Synchronicity contains 7 brand new songs with vocal contributions from Simon Godfrey, Marc Atkinson, Peter Jones together with Galahad bandmates Mark Spencer and Stu Nicholson. Gerald Mulligan once again joins on drums.

Support

Tiger Moth Tales (Solo)

Peter Jones should need no introduction to 1865 regulars. He is known as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist with the touring line-up of Camel (whose World tour starts in 2023). He played in the 1865 with Red Bazar and both the full band and the solo versions of Tiger Moth Tales as well as the Guildhall with Camel.. All to great acclaim. On this occasion he will be again presenting Tiger Moth Tales songs solo, and maybe the odd tune from other bands (?). If you are unfamiliar seek out the many videos of Tiger Moth Tales on Youtube
