No-one could ever pigeonhole the legendary and unpredictable Gryphon. They appeared on BBC Radios 1, 2, 3 and 4, all in the same week. Creative, fresh and different, they played prog rock festivals, folk clubs, cathedrals and at the National Theatre.

Their latest album Reinvention returns to their early connection with Lewis Carroll’s Alice books, where they found their name. Graeme Taylor has set the White Knight’s song ‘A-Sitting on a Gate’ into an epic 11 minute extravaganza .

Brian Gulland provides four new compositions, displaying his wide influences from 20s English humour, through harrowingly massive church organ chordal sequences, New Age recorder, to some strident and stirring full-on electric rock riffs.

Graham Preskett also contributes 4 new compositions, in a mid-70s Gryphon style,  adding some Celtic influence, and demonstrating his experience in writing filmic music. Graham is not only invaluable for his writing, but is also a multi-instrumentalist employing his talents on violin, mandolin, harmonica and keyboards with great aplomb.

Singer Dave Oberlé provides creative percussion, whilst alongside founder member, Brian Gulland on bassoon and bass crumhorn, the extraordinarily virtuosic Andy Findon shines on clarinets, saxes  and flutes.

So what is Gryphon’s music? It’s just as it always was – imaginative, quirky, dazzling yet full of humour. Every album and gig utilises at least 40 instruments, so the textures are varied and unfamiliar.

Gryphon is the antidote to genres. Whatever you expect, you’ll get something different. Come along on 25th October and see them prove that ReInvention has certainly been worth the wait.
