Ramblin' Man Fair at Maidstone - live review
Venue: Mote Park, Maidstone, Kent
Devin Townsend, Focus, Magnum, Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash, iamthemorning and The Gift grace the Prog In The Park Stage at Ramblin' Man
After a Saturday during which the rain fell sideways and misery was unconfined, day three of Ramblin’ Man finds the Prog In The Park stage basking in warm sunshine.
Making the most of the good conditions are early starters The Gift, whose ambitious music takes pointers from the giants of early prog, but with the dramatics of their presentation, it’s possible Thotch are a bigger influence than either King Crimson or Genesis.
