John Lees’ Barclay James Harvest Will ‘Clear Air’ On Tour John Lees’ Barclay James Harvest are aiming to repay fans for their patience on their UK tour, which kicks off tomorrow (November 7).

And mainman Lees says it will be a relief to finally deliver material from latest album North, their first all-new studio album in 14 years.

The band will play nine shows with guests Gordon Giltrap and Oliver Wakeman, although they’re replaced at the Edinburgh date by Anne-Marie Helder of Panic Room and Mostly Autumn.

Lees tells Prog: “It feels good to have cleared the air and moved forward, with a new set of songs and the completion of North. The writing and recording was a challenge, but on reflection it’s been well worth the effort and, personally, hugely rewarding.”

BJH’s set-list will feature six pieces from the album, which was released last month via Esoteric Antenna, plus well-known numbers including One Night, Taking Some Time On, Crazy City and Mocking Bird.

“I’m really looking forward to playing the new songs to a long-expectant, loyal group of supporters, and hopefully some new faces,” says Lees. “This is what gives the group justification for all the hard work.”

He’s delighted with what they’ve achieved during 2013, but when asked what’s in store for next year he deadpans: “Skiing in February… that’s as far as I’ve got.”
