ArtsFest: John Hackett Band

Gasto Promotions present John Hackett at The Forum. He is probably best known for his distinctive flute sound in the world of progressive music. Solo flautist, guitarist, singer and composer, John collaborated with his brother Steve Hackett, the former Genesis guitarist, on his early albums, Voyage of the Acolyte and Please Don’t Touch, along with further recordings and tours of the UK, USA and Europe, playing guitar, flute, and bass pedals.

John and his band are touring to support his latest CD “We Are Not Alone” (which has received critical appraise from the Prog-Rock media). Expect a heady and eclectic mix of rock-solid music, swirling mellotron and at times, free improvisation.
