Emerald Dawn & Dandelion Charm

‘As epic and as beautiful as it is possible to get...’ Scream Magazine

The Emerald Dawn are a multi-instrumentalist, eclectic, melodic progressive rock quartet, who combine elements from classical music, jazz, folk and rock to produce their own original, distinctive and exciting sound—a sound that is cinematic, epic, experimental and powerful.

The Emerald Dawn have been making huge waves in the UK prog scene over the past few years, having made it into the top ten in both the Best Band/Artist and Best Album categories in the 2023 annual Prog Magazine Readers' Poll. The band won the best performance vote at HRH Prog XII in 2023, the largest prog festival in the UK. Their latest album 'In Time' won the Prog Explorations Plus award for the Best Album of 2023. 

The band originally formed in Edinburgh, Scotland, by multi-instrumentalists, Tree Stewart (keyboards, flute, acoustic guitar, and vocals) and Ally Carter (guitar, tenor and soprano saxophones, and keyboards), before moving to St Ives, where they were joined by jazz drummer Tom Jackson and, more recently, by bass player David Greenaway.

‘Often gorgeous and sometimes transcendent...potent pastoral-tinged prog flows from the stage.’ Gary Mackenzie, Prog Magazine

‘Their live shows are a feast for the senses, with stunning visuals and a powerful energy that electrifies the crowd.’ Chris Parkins, London Prog Gigs

Plus support from:

Dandelion Charm 

An acoustic duo with their own blend of original Folk/Prog. Known for their intricate harmonies, soaring melodies, superb musicianship and heartfelt lyrics. Imagine Fleetwood Mac meets Opeth and CSN meets Yes.
