The first edition of the Indian Summer Festival will take place in Poznań at the end of summer, on September 26 to 27. Hosted by Independent Music Market and Agencja Oskar, this is a special event designed with progressive rock fans in mind.
Legends and rising stars of the genre will perform on the stage of the historic Zamek Cultural Center. There has never been such an event in Greater Poland before! Indian summer, or gossip in Polish, has a chance to become a new tradition.
The event is two magical evenings at the Zamek Culture Center in Poznań, which will surely fall in the hearts of progressive rock fans for a long time. The cast of the Festival is a mix of rock legends and stars and prog rock, a wide range of styles, and finally, a great opportunity to fulfill your musical dreams and see your favorite, often truly legendary performers on stage!
The festival will take place on September 26-27, 2020, in the beautiful setting of the nineteenth-century Imperial Castle in Poznań. A total of nine bands will appear on stage. The composition promises to be really impressive!

So, with just under a week until our semi-acoustic gig at Acapela Studios, near Cardiff, we thought we’d better let you in on what we have planned. We will be joined for the evening by oboist Karla Powell and cellist Emma Bryden. We’re hoping the addition of oboe and cello will certainly add some beautiful textures and make the evening very special indeed. We’ll be playing some of our lesser performed songs which will fit nicely alongside some old favourites which will no doubt benefit from the added personnel. YES there maybe even a well known cover !?
But besides the Magenta set, we have so much more in store for you.
Our own Mr Fry will perform some of his songs from ‘Composed’. Joining him will be our good friend Pete Jones from Tiger Moth Tales fame.
There’ll also be a set of songs from Christina’s two solo albums, which I’m sure will be a treat for you.
Rob has planned some ditties from his ‘Sanctuary’ albums and also you’ll witness a ‘World Exclusive’, as for the first time you’ll get to hear some amazing songs from Rob’s ‘Kompendium’ project.
We all feel that this is going to be a very special evening indeed and we believe that there are still some tickets remaining so hope to see as many of you as possible.
A Visit To Chigwick is taken from the album Cocoon by Tiger Moth Tales.
Cocoon is a concept album on the subject of Childhood, and coming to terms with the loss of childhood. The journey goes through stages of Innocence, joy, imagination, stories, friendship, love, nature, nostalgia, grief, acceptance and rebirth.
“I would often write songs or instrumentals around a story or event. Sometimes these could be quite long pieces with unconventional structures. I suppose I always had a free form approach to composing, and although I didn’t know it at the time, I was writing music with progressive leanings from the age of eight well in to my teens.” (Pete)
Tiger Moth Tales is essentially the brain child of Nottinghamshire based composer, multi – instrumentalist and musician Peter Jones, who has been involved in the music industry performing around the UK and recording his own material since the late 90s At fifteen months old Pete lost his sight due to Retinoblastoma.
