Big Big Train: Scratching That Itch
Big Big Train make their long-awaited return to the stage in August, showcasing their impressive folk/prog style to an audience who’ve almost forgotten what they look like.
For a band based in England who have a drummer living hundreds of miles away in the States, a guitarist over in Sweden and a 17-year void since their last gig, Big Big Train have got it surprisingly good at the moment. And it seems founding member Greg Spawton, who has seen the band peak and trough over the last 25 years, is inclined to agree. “There’s a nice buzz about things for us at the moment,” he reflects. “Long may it continue.”
