Four times Progressive Music Award winning band, Big Big Train, reached number one in the UK Official rock album charts with their 2017 album, Grimspound and number two with their recent live album, Merchants of Light, which was recorded at their sold out shows at London’s Cadogan Hall.
In autumn 2019, Big Big Train will embark upon their first ever UK tour, performing music from their forthcoming studio album alongside songs from their previous recordings, including 2009’s The Underfall Yard album. The shows will feature the band’s full live line-up, including a five-piece brass ensemble.
Support comes from Sweet Billy Pilgrim, an English genre spanning band who, on this occasion, will comprise duo Jana Carpenter and Tim Elsenburg. They describe their sound as "thrash pastel".
“Big Big Train have revisited the sound world of early Genesis and Yes and have managed to create music with great emotional clout”
(Bob Harris, BBCR2)
“They make beautiful, pastoral quintessentially English music...”
