About The Event
The Far Meadow
The Far Meadow is a five-piece progressive rock band from London. Now established as one of the premier live progressive acts, TFM has stepped out with the likes of Caravan, Carl Palmer, Curved Air, Focus, Gong, Uriah Heep, and most recently with Soft Machine’s John Etheridge, Solstice and The Enid, at ecological charity event Prog the Forest, Fusion 3.5 and cancer fundraiser Prog For Peart respectively.
With Marguerita Alexandrou's dramatic and distinctive vocals, Eliot Minn's enchanting and captivating keyboards, Jon Barry reproducing Denis Warren's impossibly radiant guitar work, all underpinned by the incredible rhythmic weave supplied by Paul Bringloe and Keith Buckman, TFM forges an astonishing and exciting array of musical textures.
Drawing from latest release Foreign Land (Bad Elephant 2019), the much-vaunted 2016 cd Given The Impossible, and Where Joys Abound (2012), TFM’s explosive live set is peppered with classics, including the sensational epics Travelogue and Foreign Land, while songs such as Sulis Rise, Himalaya Flashmob, Prove It and The Seamless Shirt herald a new and revelatory era.
With a stunning new album on the way, the experience of knockout shows across Europe, plus upcoming appearances countrywide, be sure to catch The Far Meadow at The 1865 as they road-test the next wave of scintillating symphonic classics.
Across The Sea
Otherworldly, and utterly captivating, Across The Sea defy categorisation, inhabiting a place where the boundlessness of the imagination transcends genre limitations and conventions. A breathtaking synthesis of the haunting, siren-like vocals of classically trained soprano Hannah Katy Lewis and the dynamic, unorthodox and experimental guitar style of Pete Ferguson, their mesmerisingly unique sound is wildly eclectic, fiercely inventive and singularly distinctive.
The duo’s much-anticipated second album, the nine-track, three-part concept piece The Wayfarer Triptych, was released in October 2021 to widespread acclaim, being heralded as a “masterpiece in storytelling through the medium of music” and “an avant-garde, genre-bending audio film that thrives while listening to it in its entirety.” An artistic endeavour near-cinematic in its scope and ambition, the album saw the duo push every aspect of their signature sound to the extreme in order to create an immense work of astonishing musicality, vivid storytelling, dizzying virtuosity, and staggering emotional resonance
