Eddie Mulder, bass player of Flamborough Head released a new solo album called Horizons. Twelve new acoustic guitar compositions (and five live tracks) released on OSKAR. For details please visit Eddie’s website.
Flamborough Head gigged at The Walled Garden Music Fest, Brightling Park, East Sussex, England on Friday 15 July 2016. We had a tremendous weekend at Brightling Park – great venue, marvelous line up, wonderful audience and two friendly hosts; Mel and Gardie (they even provided some excellent weather during the weekend!), thanks for having us over!
Brightling Park is a country estate which lies in the parishes of Brightling and Dallington in the Rother district of East Sussex, England. Situated to the west of the A21 and within easy reach of Tunbridge Wells (20 miles) and Hastings (13 miles). A perfect setting for a three days festival. On Friday Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel headlined the evening. Saturday 16 July was reserved for several tributebands celebrating the music of Phil Collins, Queen, Supertramp and David Bowie. On Sunday Marc Almond, Nik Kershaw and Go West (a.o.) were on the bill.
After our Northern Prog Festival gig (2015) Gert Pölkerman decided to leave Flamborough Head; lack of time in his busy schedule forced him to make this decision. We thank Gert for his contribution to Flamborough Head; we did some marvellous gigs together in Holland and abroad and he produced our well received album Lost In Time.
We welcome Hans Spitzen as our new guitar player (and bass player, keyboard player & backing vocalist:-). Hans released his first solo album Fingerprints in 2015; please visit Progwereld for a (Dutch) review and an interview, both by Dick van der Heijde.
Back in 2008 Hans helped us out when Flamborough Head was working on the track Daughters Of Night for the Finnish Colossus Canto-project. Eddie, our guitar player, had just left the band and so we did not have a guitarist at that time. He has now joined Flamborough Head as a permanent member and we all look forward to working with Hans again.

After more than 20 years Marcel Derix decided to call it a day. Of course we do respect his decision, we had a marvellous time together. Recording all our albums, travelling together and organising ProgFarm! Without Marcel it would have been less fun. We part as friends.
We welcome our old mate Eddie Mulder, former guitarist of Flamborough Head. He helped us out on previous occasions, on both bass and guitar, so we never parted really.
Flamborough Head gigged at the Parktheater, Alphen aan den Rijn on March 14 2014, an event organised by Serious Music Alphen.
This Alphen gig turned out to be the final gig for Marcel with Flamborough Head
“Deze uit Friesland afkomstige band mocht om 20:30 uur het spits afbijten. In 2013 brachten ze het album “Lost In Time” dat zeker tot hun beste album tot nu toe gerekend mag worden. De nummers afkomstig van dit album maakten dan ook het meest indruk. Het fluitspel van Margriet Boomsma past hier geweldig goed bij en ook gitarist Gert Polkerman deed het erg goed. De muziek van Flamborough Head past ook perfect bij de ambiance. Dit is echt muziek om lekker bij de te zitten en zo te ondergaan. Echte luistermuziek en een genot om deze ervaren muzikanten aan het werk te zien. Ze hadden maar een uur, maar hadden van mij best wat langer mogen spelen.” (Voor de volledige recensie van Maarten Goossensen zie Progwereld ).
