HRH Prog 6 in Hafan-Y-Mor, Pwllheli - live review
Venue: Hafan-Y-Mor, Pwllheli, Wales
Prog royalty wows north Wales again
Deserving of its status as one of the biggest progressive rock festivals in Europe, the second HRH Prog of 2017 gets underway with a low-key evening for the early birds in the sizeable main arena. The tasteful guitar of Dave Cureton provides the main highlights of IO Earth’s opening slot, with entertaining Hawkwind-influenced trio Krankschaft bringing the comedy and Mostly Autumn delivering the classy, beautiful show that we’ve come to expect from them.
The first day proper is a dash to catch snippets of newer bands on Stage Two between the more established bands on the main stage. London-based prog metallers Kyros (formerly Synaesthesia) are all good players, but fail to hit their stride until late in the set, by which time Edgar Broughton is delivering his familiar Marmite acoustic set.
