Legendary Band The Syn Release Live at Rosfest CD/DVD
On May 12th, The Syn Live Rosfest will be available world wide.
Formed in 1965, The Syn was a precursor of the band Yes, with that band’s bassist Chris Squire as one of the founding members. At various times The Syn has also included Yes alums Peter Banks and Alan White in their lineup. When the Syn played Rosfest in 2009 the band featured a core lineup of Steve Nardelli (founding member, songwriter, lead vocalist and guitarist), Francis Dunnery (of It Bites and Robert Plant fame – guitars and vocals) and Tom Brislin (Spiraling – also keyboardist on Yes’ Symphonic tour – keyboards and vocals). The lineup was augmented by Paul Ramsey (Echolyn) providing drums and other percussion, Brett Kull (also of Echolyn) on guitar and Dorie Jackson doing backing and harmony vocals.
The 2009 edition was the sixth annual Rites of Spring Festival. Located in the Greater Philadelphia Area (Glenside, PA), the festival features some of the best progressive rock acts from all over the globe. Other acts at the 2009 show included Nektar, Lazuli, John Lees’ Barclay James Harvest, Apocalypse, Iluvatar, Frost*, Mangala Vallis, Abigail’s Ghost, Moon Safari, Moth Vellum and Touchstone.
