American project Rocking Horse Music Club will be returning to the UK in November to perform a selection of music from Anthony Phillips and Mike Rutherford. Working directly with Anthony Phillips, the band have curated a selection of songs taken primarily from his first three albums, The Geese & The Ghost, Wise After the Event and Sides. This will be the first time that these songs have been performed live with a full band.
Additionally, the band will be joined by Noel McCalla to perform a selection of songs from Mike Rutherford’s 1980 solo album Smallcreep’s Day, on which McCalla was the original vocalist.
