Gryphon are the oldest and the newest thing – a legendary British band that’s as exhilarating, energetic, unpredictable and addictive now as they were when they last toured, in the 1970s.
At that time, no-one could pigeonhole Gryphon. When the first album came out, the band appeared on BBC Radios 1, 2, 3 and 4, all in the same week. They appeared with Yes at Madison Square Garden and Houston Astrodome, played festivals, folk clubs and cathedrals. They wrote and played the music for Sir Peter Hall’s National Theatre production of The Tempest at the Old Vic and found a unique place in the hearts of folkies, prog rock fans, early music aficionados and others with an ear for something fresh and different.
Now Gryphon are back, reinvented, mixing classic material with fresh pieces from ReInvention, their first new album in forty-one years.
