Prog Yes Festival & Associated ‘Prog Rock’ Shows
Driven by the idea to promote ‘prog rock’ bands, who play an eclectic style of music for a specialist audience, I organised, managed and marketed a series of concerts and eventually a 3-day festival in the North Yorkshire town of Knaresborough.
I initially selected a local Knaresborough venue, Henshaws’s Arts and Crafts Centre, where I featured 4 shows in 2010. Due to a great interest and high attendance at the concerts, I moved to a bigger venue, the Frazer Theatre in 2011 to feature a one-day festival, which in 2012 was extended to a 3-day festival with a sold-out evening with the 'SeyYes' Yes Tribute group supported by Silver Lining. I succeeded in providing a platform for promoting the ‘prog rock’ genre, popularising the eclectic style of music for 3 consecutive years.
