With music that is ‘as epic and as beautiful as it is possible to get’ (Scream Magazine), The Emerald Dawn are a multi-instrumentalist, symphonic progressive rock quartet, who combine elements from classical music, jazz and rock to produce their own original, distinctive and exciting sound—a sound that is cinematic, experimental and powerful. Usually haunting, often stunningly melodic and always highly atmospheric, the music of The Emerald Dawn paints images or tells stories that stimulate the imagination and takes the listener on unforgettable musical journeys.
Originally formed in Edinburgh, the St Ives-based band comprises
Tree Stewart (keyboards, flute, acoustic guitar and vocals),
Ally Carter(guitar, saxophones and vocals),
David Greenway (fretless and fretted bass guitars)
and Tom Jackson (drums). For their second studio album, ‘Visions’,
The Prog Mind ranked Stewart number 7 in the best keyboards performances of 2017 while ranking Carter number 6 in the best guitar performances.
In February 2019 The Emerald Dawn released their third studio album, ‘Nocturne’, to rave reviews:
‘…as wondrous as only a near-masterpiece can be.’*** Dmitry M. Epstein;
‘This is a sheer delight to listen to, one of those albums that gets inside your soul and is one that you will keep with you for life. … I love this album.’ The Progressive Aspect;
‘A wonderful must have album, full of passion, drama, and majestic instrumentation throughout…’
‘“Nocturne” displays musical prowess that will leave your heart in your throat’. The Prog Mind.
The Emerald Dawn will not only be performing compositions from their three studio albums but will also be providing a glimpse of some of their forthcoming album: ‘To Touch the Sky’.
Tiger Moth Tales is the brainchild of Nottinghamshire based musician and writer Peter Jones. Apart from his own projects, Jones has been the keyboard player with prog legends Camel since 2016, as well as joining the Francis Dunnery band on the last two It Bites show tours.
He has been involved in the music industry performing around the UK and recording his own material since the late 90s.
He made his first real venture in to progressive rock in 2013, in an attempt to make a new start and to break away from his previous projects. The resulting album was Cocoon, which was released the following year to great reviews from critics and prog fans alike.
Pete also performs his music in a solo acoustic setting, accompanying his voice with piano and guitar. At these gigs, the music is perhaps a more reflective and intimate experience. As well as performing from the Tiger Moth Tales back catalogue, Pete will share the occasional story and include music from his other prog projects, with maybe a Genesis tune thrown in.
Join Pete Jones for an evening of prog, melodies and stories.
