Gordon Giltrap and Oliver Wakeman
Guitar Legend and the next generation of keyboard wizardry join forces!
Autumn 2012 saw the beginning of a new project for guitar legend Gordon Giltrap and keyboardist Oliver Wakeman and has resulted in a Brand New album "Raven's & Lullabies" out now on Cherry Red.
Featuring a variety of guitars and keyboards, which are their tools in trade, The October 2013 tour will continue the success of their first public performances and showcase a selection of pieces from the album as well as new arrangements of classic material from both of their retrospective careers.
Gordon says “This project will see a return to my “Prog Rock” roots, and the prospect of working with a man considered by many to be one of the best in the business truly excites me! " Oliver adds, "After working with YES, the chance of working with another legendary guitarist was an opportunity too good to miss. I am having a wonderfully productive time working with Gordon and feel we are creating something genuinely unique in our 'Raven's & Lullabies' project. So, with their collective histories and talents to draw inspiration from, be prepared for an evening of beautiful compositions, wit and charm from these two virtuosos.
