I saw Franck Carducci and his band at The Night Of The Prog festival in Loreley in Germany in 2017. It's only an hour and 35 minutes to Frankfurt Hahn airport which is nowhere near Frankfurt, like a lot of other artistic licence airport names that a budget certain airline uses. A taxi drive later and we were there. Well apart from a long walk up an hill. Next day we found out you could catch a bus there from the town. We stayed in an hotel and instead of seeing "keep off the grass" (I hadn't been smoking) signs their said: "Verboten".
The festival site is picturesque perched high above the River Rhine. The stone amphitheatre was constructed apparently for Hitler's WW2 victory celebrations. Thankfully that never happened and these days great Prog Rock bands grace the stage. We saw old signs for Scottish Celtic Rockers who had played there a few weeks before The Night Of The Prog.
Franck Carducci is from France and he is based in Amsterdam. I saw them at Loreley and found them to be a breath of fresh Prog Rock air.
They remind me of early Peter Gabriel/Genesis with their theatrical like stage presence and Mary Reynaud with her dancing and singing. They got a standing ovation by 6000 people including yours truly at Loreley.
They are playing A New Day Festival next August at Mount Ephraim Gardens at Faversham near Kent. Regular readers will know I have been there twice but I am not sure about next year. Time will tell.
Any way or any road enjoy the music. It's a ten minute track and ever there's a good reason to like Prog it's this band.
Like Max Boyce says: "I was there!
