Curved Air

Sunday 30th September 2018 - Starts 8pm



‘One of the most dramatically accomplished of all the bands lumped into Britain’s late sixties prog explosion’ – AllMusic

Curved Air is a unique band, synthesizing an eclectic blend of musical styles into an instantly identifiable sound, with hits including ‘It Happened Today’, ‘Vivaldi’, ‘Marie Antoinette.’ Elevated from the underground Roundhouse scene to top the album charts in the early ’70s. Curved Air founder member vocalist Sonja Kristina leads a skilled and talented new line-up.

The band’s experimental blends of classical themes, electronic sounds and pop/rock energy and beautiful, timeless songs are performed with fire and passion and tremendous musicianship.

‘With a real band attitude and a zest for life; this is a band you want to see live for the sheer artistry of how to deliver the musical goods’ – Lee Dorian, Classic Rock

‘All of the players impress – some stunning new instrumentalists who immerse the audience in a set of swirling, whirling solos that emphasize moods and nuances and floating waves of sound that act as a counterpoint to Sonja’s dramatic sense of theatricality’ – Classic Rock Society Magazine

‘Sonja Kristina prowls the front of the stage expertly playing off the energy of all the performers with her. Violinist Paul Sax pulling sounds from his instrument like a mad scientist. There’s no denying they remain formidable live!’ – Prog Magazine

‘While women in UK progressive rock were relatively few and far between, it’s Sonja that wore the crown. Well the undisputed queen of British Prog is on tour again and what a joy it is to see her and Curved Air back in action.’ – Classic Rock

Curved Air is:
Sonja Kristina – vocals / Paul Sax – violin / Chris Harris – bass / Robert Norton – keyboards / Kit Morgan – guitar / Andy Tween – drums
