Subject: [ProgAndOther] STARCASTLE to play ProgDay 2002!
American progressive rock masters STARCASTLE will be appearing at the
ProgDay festival this Labor Day weekend, August 31st and September 1st,
2002. This performance is a culmination of a series of serendipitous events
for all involved, as ProgDay found out that Starcastle might be available
only after initial band commitments were made, but fate smiled kindly and
the band was both available to play, and eager to get on stage in front of
their fans after all these years.
Originating in Champaign Illinois, Starcastle was one of the popular and
well-respected of the American prog bands of the 70s. Their first two albums
for Epic, "Starcastle" and "Fountains of Light", are archetypes of the
symphonic sound; utopian, grand, sweeping, intricate, complex and melodic, a
marriage of accessibility and compositional rigor that holds up well to much
of the contemporary music and what has come since.
After many years of inactivity, Starcastle is back. Gary Strater's Sunsinger
Records has released the Starcastle archive "Chronos I", featuring material
from the band's early days, and work is also underway for a new studio
album. The long-awaited reunion of the band will be realized on the stage
for the first time this Labor Day weekend. It is a privilege for ProgDay
that this world-class band has accepted an invitation to perform.
For more info:
Tickets are already on sale for ProgDay, a two-day festival taking place on

Chapel Hill, NC. Already confirmed for the event are Happy the Man, The
Muffins, Avant Garden (all US), Kraan (Germany), Tempano (Venezuela) and

longest-running North American prog festival, and is a by-fans, for-fans
event, organized by a dedicated team of volunteers. Its idyllic outdoor
environment and community atmosphere makes it an unforgettable weekend of
music and spirit.
