The John Hackett Band is thrilled to be returning to The Greystones for an evening of progressive music, joined once more by outstanding singer-songwriter, Howard Sinclair.
Progressive music in our sense of the word is based on rock-solid songwriting coupled with hot jazz drumming, melodic, funky bass, outstanding guitar in the form of Nick Fletcher and John Hackett himself whose flute playing has graced so many albums and travels with such ease between classical, folk and rock.
John Hackett has been a much-loved and admired figure in the progressive rock scene since the mid-70s; best-known for his flute work with his brother, former Genesis guitarist, Steve Hackett on albums such as Voyage of The Acolyte, Sketches of Satie and Please Dont Touch. Drawing on songs from Johns solo albums Checking Out Of London, Another Life and The Piper Plays His Tune, the evening also features material from the bands debut, We Are Not Alone and the Hackett/Fletcher album Beyond the Stars.
The Piper Plays His Tune is right up there in a place among the great pop albums of 2020
Robert Silverstein, Roots Music Report
A fantastic album!Nick Fletcher is probably the best jazz rock guitarist in the country. His fluency is astounding, plus he possesses a first-rate classical guitar technique to boot!I consider Nick Fletcher to be an absolute star
