Big Big Train is now a seven-piece outfit, as Andy Poole has resigned.
From the band:
ANNOUNCEMENT FROM ANDY POOLE AND BIG BIG TRAIN
Andy Poole will shortly be leaving Big Big Train.
Big Big Train would like to thank Andy for the significant part he has played in the band’s journey and we wish him well in his future endeavours.
Big Big Train will continue with the seven-piece line-up of D’Virgilio / Gregory / Hall / Longdon / Manners / Sjöblom / Spawton alongside the five-piece BBT brass band led by Dave Desmond.
For future live performance, the band has recruited an additional musician to assist with keyboard and guitar work. We will announce details in due course.
We also hope to announce a UK warm-up show for our July 13th Night of the Prog festival appearance at Loreley. We expect the warm-up show to take place on July 11th.
Danny, Dave, David, Greg, Nick, Rachel and Rikard
And, from Andy:
Progarchy bids a fond farewell to Andy Poole and best wishes to him on his new adventures.
We also continue to wish our beloved Big Big Train all the best in the world!
