Camel to play 3 shows before Ramblin’ Man Fair

Camel will play three UK shows in July ahead of their headline set at the inaugural Ramblin’ Man Fair.

The festival, run in association with Prog and publishers TeamRock, takes place at Mote Park, Maidstone, Kent, on July 25-26.

But before that, Andy Latimer and co will appear in St Albans, Bath and York.

The frontman brought the band back into action at the end of 2013 after having spent a decade fighting a life-threatening illness. He was given a Lifetime Achievement Award at last year’s Progressive Music Awards.

Tickets for the July shows are on sale now. The Ramblin’ Man Fair also features Marillion, Ian Anderson, Pendragon, Riverside, Messenger and The Pineapple Thief, with more to be announced.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
