The new studio album by John Lees’ Barclay James Harvest was released last week, and the band will be appearing at The Cambridge Junction next month, to promote it.

The album, North, is the band’s first all new studio recording since Nexus, released in 1999.

Featuring John Lees (vocals, guitars), Craig Fletcher (vocals, bass), Jez Smith (keyboards, vocals) and Kevin Whitehead (drums, percussion), the record is very much a group effort, in the tradition of classic BJH, with every track being written specifically for the album by all four members of the band.

The band will be joined at The Cambridge Junction by Gordon Giltrap and Oliver Wakeman.

North continues the Barclay James Harvest story, and is the strongest work to emerge from the band in many years. The album is released as a standard single CD edition and a deluxe limited edition 2CD digi-pack release, which includes a previously unreleased bonus CD featuring highlights of the band’s sold out concert at Buxton Opera House in February 2011.

The gig is on Thursday November 21. Doors open at 7pm and tickets cost £23.50, and £16 concessions. Box office 01223 511511.
