The Far Meadow is a five-piece progressive rock band from London. Always associated with the best, just lately TFM has been keeping especially good company, stepping out with the likes of Caravan, Carl Palmer, Curved Air, Focus, Gong and Uriah Heep. With Marguerita Alexandrou’s dramatic and distinctive vocals, Eliot Minn’s enchanting and captivating keyboards, and 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 recently released Foreign Land on the Bad Elephant label, 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, and the experience of knockout shows across Europe, plus appearances countrywide including The Cambridge Rock and Summer’s End festivals, be sure to catch The Far Meadow at The 1865 as they play the next wave of scintillating symphonic classics.
The Dame (Netherlands)
A new Dame has moved into town! She is sensual, feminine, and smooth… That is, until the guitars start roaring. Try to tell her what to do, and… wait, no. Better not. Just trust us on this one. She has a mind of her own, which makes an interesting new take on neoprog!
We like to describe our music as the sexy version of progressive rock. Our mission? We try to give everything a feminine touch. Not just the music, but our entire look and feel. Just a little more beauty, a little more passion, and a little more sexy chic.
The Dame is:
Marian van Charante – Vocals & guitar
Stephen de Ruijter – Lead guitar
Michel Krempel – Bass
Thijs de Ruijter – Keyboards
Remco Engels – Drums
