Renowned music conductor Charles Hazlewood has revealed that he will conduct a 45-minute suite of Barry Gray music at Glastonbury this year. The performance will take place at 1pm, on Sunday, June 29th on the Park Stage.
The Charles Hazlewood Allstars will be playing, featuring musicians from Goldfrapp, Portishead, Get the Blessing and Loose Tubes. Francois Evans will also be appearing, playing Barry Gray’s original Ondes Martenot.
Ralph Titterton, of the Barry Gray Archive, is working with musical arranger Ian Gardiner to prepare the arrangements, which are being written from Barry’s original scores. Although the music to be played has yet to be finally confirmed, it will feature scores from Fireball XL5, Stingray, Captain Scarlet, UFO and Thunderbirds.
It is yet to be confirmed whether the BBC will be broadcast the set as part of their extensive coverage of the festival.
