UnicornUnicorn are reforming for a one off gig at the Croissant Neuf Summer Festival in Wales on August 10th. Famously championed by David Gilmour, who covered their track There's No Way Out Of Here on his 1978 debut solo album (and also produced albums and performed with them too), Unicorn are set to play their first concert since 1977 on the Big Top solar-powered stage at CNSP!

Following the path laid by bands such as The Byrds, Poco and The Eagles, Unicorn instilled their own British flair into country rock in the 1970s, releasing albums in the UK and USA on Capitol Records.

CNSP Festival Director Andy Hope saw the band live in the 70s and got in touch with bassist and founding member, Pat Martin, to see if they would consider playing at the festival based near Usk in Monmouthshire. This led to original members Pat and Ken Baker inviting guitarists Nick Powell and Chris Wiley to a jam session where, Pat explained, "We haven't played together since [original drummer] Pete Perryer died and it was the first time Ken had played in a band situation since the late 70s, but we felt the buzz and wanted to play live again."

Running between August 8-11, 2013, Croissant Neuf Summer Party is a multi-award winning family friendly festival with a very green conscience. Since its debut in 2007 the solar powered festival has been a haven for families with a bursting line-up of music, circus, fun and games situated in the stunning hills near Usk in Monmouthshire. Tickets are now available through CNSP.co.uk.
