The Blackheart Orchestra + Tiger Moth Tales

Don't Miss Out
Time: Sunday 7.00pm
Cost: £14.00 in Advance

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.

Cocoon is a concept album on the subject of Childhood, and coming to terms with the loss of childhood. The journey goes through stages of Innocence, joy, imagination, stories, friendship, love, nature, nostalgia, grief, acceptance and rebirth.

Since the success of Cocoon, Jones has released three more albums under the Tiger Moth Tales band name. He has performed many shows with the Tiger Moth Tales band, including sets at festivals such as Prog Dreams in the Netherlands, the UK’s Summer’s End, and Progstock in the US.

Join Pete Jones and the band for an evening of prog, melodies and stories.
