Multi-instrumentalist, Ben Craven

This is the audio from our recent Google Hangout On Air experiment which has been properly mixed and edited by Ben himself. Some listeners managed to catch the video live but this sounds so much better. Ben’s done a fantastic job and the band played brilliantly despite the late hour! Many thanks to them for this great session!

Look out for more live events and also keep tuned for a rather more elaborate project soon! I hope everyone can be involved in the future…

Our ultimate aim is to set up and run a full, progressive rock virtual festival with bands from across the globe. Watch this space!
