Barclay James Harvest

Time to celebrate: In 1968, the very first Barclay James Harvest record "Early Morning" was released. In the course of an extensive anniversary tour, John Lees' Barclay James Harvest are visiting the Theater am Aegi in Hannover on 31 October.

John Lees and Stuart "Woolly" Wolstenholme were founding members of Barclay James Harvest, the melodic rock band with classical leanings which emerged from Oldham in the late sixties. Their relationship endured through nine studio albums and two live doubles. When it was announced in March 1998 that Barclay James Harvest would be taking a sabbatical, it was effectively the end of the original band.

BJH Through The Eyes of John Lees

However, John and Wooly renewed their friendship and began to work with bassist Craig Fletcher and drummer Kevin Whitehead under the name Barclay James Harvest Through The Eyes Of John Lees. The first major England Tour 2006 was a great success. 2009 until 2010 the band was fully active again, there were many live shows in the U.S.A. and all over Europe.

Going on without "Woolly"

In 2010 the songs for a new studio album were written and a big festival was played. Unfortunately, these were to be Woolly's last performances, he died in 2010. After some deliberation, John Lees announced at a tribute concert for Woolly that he intended to continue with the group. Currently BJH are working on a new studio album. This album will build on the success of "North" (2013) and celebrate the 50 years of music history of this band.
