Guy Manning Special One-Off Damanek Line-up For Music Festival


(Prog) Guy Manning has announced a one-off line-up for the Damanek project with Marek Arnold and Dan Mash for this year's Summer's End Festival. Joining the trio will be Sean Timms (Southern Empire), Luke Machin (Machine) and Henry Rogers (Touchstone/Heather Findlay Band).

"Post United Progressive Fraternity and the appearance at Summer's End in 2014 and a short tour, I wanted to establish a new musical venture away from my solo Manning stuff. I had lots of new, different material written, I just needed the best musicians I could find who liked the pieces enough to join me," manning tells Prog.

"When Stephen Lambe invited me to perform at this years Summer's End, my first thought was, "how am I going to be able to bring a line-up together which can do justice to the album already in production?) This was gong to be like assembling The Avengers or the Magnificent Seven (or six in this case)...

"As it turns out, there have been some fortuitous decisions/happy accidents made by Lambsie and Huw Lloyd-Jones which made some of this a hell of a lot easier for me. Firstly, Seven Steps To The Green Door were invited to perform on the Saturday, so I knew Marek would be there anyhow. Secondly I contacted Sean and asked him if it would be at all possible that he could get across for it. And to my absolute surprise and delight, he agreed!" here.
