Following the success of his Pink Floyd Nights, James Hollingsworth summons up his inner Progness to embark upon a journey beyond 3 chords, playing songs from his recent album 'Thirteen Moons' well as classics from the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Yes, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, Kate Bush, The Beatles, Roy Harper, Jeff Buckley, Greg Lake, Marillion and more (maybe even a bit of Floyd).

In an all-live unique solo show, James uses modern Looping technology, with hand percussion, voice and guitar effects to build complex arrangements in real time, no pre-recorded backing tracks are used!

*** warning! May contain Prog!

"James has an amazing voice and is a superb songwriter, guitarist and performer" - Loop Masters Night, CICCIC, Taunton
