Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends...
Outside The Original is an exciting new project from James Finnigan of Hue and Cry and Stiltskin fame.
This 6 piece band will faithfully reproduce timeless masterpieces from the giants of progressive rock, performing a selection of classics by: Emerson Lake and Palmer, Genesis, King Crimson, Yes and Pink Floyd – among others.
Outside The Original are now organising gigs at some fantastic venues, with shows planned starting February 2023. Please check out our events page for more details.
We've been back in the studio since last year, rehearsing - and dusting off some of those lockdown cobwebs! Please visit the events and video archive pages to view some images from our recent gigs and video shorts.
My early musical education was listening to, and playing this great music. I hope you enjoy the band live
....when we eventually get out there! Come along and be part of the show.
After 30 years performing and teaching classical guitar, Paul now has a chance to return to his early musical influences: ELP, Yes and Genesis.
After years of playing with various jazz, fusion, blues and rock bands, drummer, percussionist and synth geek George finally gets to play his first love - progressive rock. "I've waited all my adult life to play this music, and here we are."Prog bliss!
Vocal and keyboard performer/teacher with academic classical roots. Suzanne has performed with many bands and genres, and is now enjoying the challenge of prog at its finest.
Mark has long (long!) experience of playing in bands of all sorts and is still involved with Glasgow-based prog bands Comedy Of Errors and Grand Tour. The lure of playing some classic prog with Outside The Original has been way too much to ignore.
Previous projects include lead vocals in original Glasgow rock band, Haven. Gerry was also the principal lyricist and singer with IF.
