Big Big Train at Cadogan Hall, London - live review
Venue: Cadogan Hall, London
Folklore collective return to the capital for a series of sold-out shows
Big Big Train are no stranger to Prog Awards, but they’d better find some more space in their trophy cabinet as tonight proves that they’re as stunning a proposition as any contemporary progressive rock band on the scene. Two sets of monumental arrangements are delivered with extraordinary musicianship, but it’s what they do with that musicianship that matters. The songs are both intricate and accessible, twisting and turning in surprising ways, but aware of when to lock in and build until it sounds like happy angels are crying.
