Renaissance Celebrates 50 Years!

Renaissance live in Belo Horizonte Brazil - Annie Haslam.jpg


Vocalist Annie Haslam talks with Big Blend Radio about the 50th Anniversary Tour of legendary symphonic rock group, Renaissance.


Renaissance is a band with a rich history unique unto themselves as progressive rock pioneers who rose from the ashes of the seminal UK rock band, The Yardbirds. Acclaimed for their unique blending of progressive rock with classical and symphonic influences, the band’s career has spanned forty plus years spearheaded by the 5 octave voice of Annie Haslam and the masterful songwriting skills of Michael Dunford. They are widely considered to be the band that most successfully and routinely utilized the sound of a full orchestra in their recordings.

The band has toured throughout the world and has performed at Carnegie Hall with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and additionally at the Royal Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Royal Chorale Society. Renaissance had a top ten hit in the UK with their song “Northern Lights” that still demands airplay to this day.

Renaissance are: Annie Haslam –  lead  vocals, Rave Tesar – keyboards, Mark Lambert – guitars/vocals, Geoffrey Langley – keyboards/vocals, Leo Traversa – bass guitar/vocals, Frank Pagano – drums/percussion/vocals.
